Beaches of tenerife


Its beautiful beaches, its enchanting nature of contrasts and its mild climate all year round make the Canary Islands one of our favourite Spanish destinations.

We’ve already told you about the beautiful beaches on the islands of La Gomera, Lanzarote and Gran Canaria, and today we want to bring you a little closer to the wide variety of coasts on the tourist island of Tenerife.

Take note and make your summer roadmap!
In Tenerife you will find more than 140 beaches and coves, from the most urbanised and crowded to the most isolated beaches, ideal for a relaxing day.

In Puerto de la Cruz you will find some beaches such as Playa Jardín, for example, a beach of around 700 metres of fine black sand and calm waters. For your comfort, it offers all kinds of facilities and services.

On your obligatory visit to Santa Cruz you can’t miss the beaches of Las Gaviotas or Las Teresitas, the former popular for its black sand and nudist character and the latter for its beautiful white sand that contrasts with the former.

As for naturist beaches, on Los Patos de Orotava beach you will also find an excellent coastline to enjoy a day of sun and sand to your heart’s content.

If you go to Los Cristianos you can visit the beaches of Las Caletillas, El Camisón (black sand) or Las Vistas (white sand). In La Laguna, don’t miss the Arenal beach, as well as the beaches of La Tejita, Médano and Confital de Granadilla.

We couldn’t finish this post without mentioning the wonderful beaches of Tenerife’s Costa Adeje, most of them urban or semi-urban with considerable levels of occupation. The beaches of Las Américas (next to Los Cristianos), Troya, Playa Blanca, La Caleta, Fañabé and El Bobo are some of the most popular in the area.
