The best beaches in Tenerife.
Discover the most famous beaches of Tenerife: from stunning black sand beaches such as the Benijo beach, which stands out for its volcanic rocks, to the exclusive Playa del Duque.
And those looking for a more romantic setting can also visit some of the island’s most hidden coves or natural pools, such as the Charco de la Laja. It is the perfect place to connect with nature in a unique setting. We also recommend taking a stroll along the coastline and visiting the pretty village of San Juan de la Rambla, you will not regret it!
Descubrir el Bollullo es adentrarse en una playa con un encanto natural que te atrapará desde el primer instante. Situada al borde de un acantilado en la zona de El Rincón, (La Orotava), presenta una superficie de arena negra que se mezcla con las formaciones volcánicas adentrándose en el mar. Si te gusta jugar con las olas y el surf, disfrutarás muchísimo, ya que el oleaje suele ser bastante fuerte durante todo el año. Por esa misma razón debes extremar las precauciones a la hora de darte un baño.
If you want to experience nature in its purest form, you simply cannot miss Benijo beach. Here, you will enjoy a unique landscape on the island with privileged views of the rock formations of the so-called Roques de Anaga. And the sunsets here are simply magical, especially when the undertow of the sea blends in with the red colour of the horizon and the silhouette of the volcanic rocks, rising from the depths of the ocean. Benijo is the most remote beach in the village of Taganana, whose houses are scattered around the Anaga Rural Park, and whose undulating access road will not leave you indifferent.
El Médano is one of the most charming beaches in the south of Tenerife. Whether you are a water sports lover or you are just looking to spend a great day on the beach in a more local atmosphere, this beach is perfect for you. It particularly stands out for its fine grey sand and its views of the majestic Montaña Roja volcanic cone. Go for a walk along the beach promenade and enjoy the sunset while watching windsurfers and kitesurfers glide across the water.
Located next to a luxury hotel, this quiet cove with golden sand and calm waters is the perfect choice for those looking to relax in peace and quiet. Nestled next to a cliff crowned by banana trees, this shell-shaped beach is the perfect place to enjoy unforgettable sunsets with the island of La Gomera on the horizon.
This small volcanic paradise, created from the unpredictable shapes of lava flows, is one of the most beautiful places on the coast of San Juan de la Rambla. With clear and calm waters, the Charco de La Laja,- a natural swimming pool-, is the perfect place to connect with nature in unbeatable surroundings. During your visit, we recommend that you take some time to go for a stroll along the coast and visit the pretty village of San Juan de la Rambla, where you can try some traditional dishes of the rich Canarian cuisine in any of its many restaurants and taverns.
