It´s impossible to travel to Tenerife and not stop off at some of the island’s beaches. They are all over the Tenerife Coast and here is a short list of our visitors’ favorite beaches just in case you want to go straight there and don’t have time to look around.
Playa de los Gigantes: lying close to the cliffs of the same name; the cliffs are 600 meters high and afford an amazing view!
Playa de Los Patos: a spectacular and remote black sand beach near to the coast of La Orotava. Difficult to access but highly recommended for spending the day.
Costa Adeje : there are several beaches along the Costa Adeje, some linked to each other. Many people who have visited Tenerife or live there, like the Playa de Fañabé more than any other.
Playa del Médano and Playa de la Tejita: famous for being among the largest on the island of Tenerife, Médano Beach has beautiful fine golden sand and shallow, calm and crystal clear waters. Montaña Roja (Red Mountain) rises up between La Tejita and El Médano, creating a natural boundary between the two beaches.
Playa de Masca: Masca Beach is either reached after an excursion on foot or by boat. In spite of the difficulties involved in accessing it, its complete isolation and a lack of visitors makes the experience worthwhile. It’s well worth the effort!
Playa de Bollullo: ideal for anybody looking for peace and quiet and who wants to escape from overcrowding. It is isolated and only just 200 m long. It’s in the Municipality of La Orotava, on the slopes of Mount Teide.
Charco del Viento: Charco del Viento is a small and very curious cove surrounded by rocks that make sure the waters are always calm.
Playa del Socorro: ideal for surfers, the Socorro Beach is an all-purpose, well-communicated beach that is just perfect for a welcome break during the day.
Yes, we know, there are a lot more, but this is just the first part of our list of “favorite” beaches on the island of Tenerife. We’re not going to tell you everything in one go, are we? Stay tuned!
