Discover Tenerife's Most Beautiful Beaches
Friday, January 28, 2022 @ 10:08 AM


Along with Gran Canaria, Tenerife is one of the most popular islands of the Canary Islands and also one of the most visited every summer by Spaniards and tourists who seek to discover the spectacular volcanic landscapes that this island hides or simply spend a few days and weeks relaxing and enjoying breathtaking beaches. Fortunately, these beaches can be enjoyed all year round s I have made a selection of the most paradisiacal and beautiful beaches on the island, just in case you plan a visit for your next break.

I have tried to include remote, wild beaches, others that are more accessible, a selection which is ideal for those looking to relax and get away from the tourist centres or for those who prefer all the comforts and easy access. So, here they are:


Tejita Beach


If you are looking for one of those wild, hidden beaches and one of the most beautiful in Tenerife, then Tejita beach is perfect for you. A beach that you will find in the south of the island and next to the Montaña Roja Nature Reserve. An old volcanic crater of a reddish colour, of which you will have spectacular views from this beach. A quiet, wild beach with golden sand, ideal for those looking for a place away from the tourist centres and especially for fans of sports such as surfing or windsurfing, since the wind is another of the great protagonists at this sandbank.


Teresitas Beach

Las Teresitas Beach is one of the best-known beaches in Santa Cruz de Tenerife. A beach of golden sand and palm trees that you will find located in the town of San Andrés and that will undoubtedly transport you to any paradisiacal beach that you have ever dreamed of. It is also one of the favourite beaches for families, thanks to the tranquillity of its waves since the dikes are responsible for softening the waves. All this, together with how close it is to the city centre, make it one of the most touristy beaches on the island.


Benijo Beach

This is another one of those completely wild and extremely beautiful beaches that you can find on the island of Tenerife and specifically on its north coast. A perfect black sand beach for those who want to escape the overcrowding of other better-known beaches, since in summer it has an average occupancy and low occupancy the rest of the year. Its access is another of the reasons why this beach does not have many tourists and in order to get to it you will have to access a path with steps that will have you descending for about fifteen minutes, but remember at the end of the day you will have to go back up. It is also advisable to be especially careful with the waves since they are usually quite strong. The environment and landscape deserve at least one visit, as do its spectacular sunsets.


Masca Beach

A wild, isolated environment, with volcanic sand, surrounded by cliffs and crystal clear waters. This is how we could define this small but beautiful beach of Masca located at the end of the bed of the Barranco de Masca. Another of its characteristics is its difficult access, for which you will have to approach it either by boat or by going down the ravine, which can take between 2 and 4 hours on foot. An effort that will undoubtedly be worth it not just for its paradisiacal beach, but also for the impressive landscapes that you will be able to see throughout your walk.


El Duque Beach

For those who prefer something more accessible and with all the creature comforts, Playa El Duque is another favourite. It is a Blue Flag beach located in the tourist area of ​​Costa Adeje and in front of some of the most exclusive and luxurious hotels on the Island. With golden sand, crystal clear, clean and calm waters and with all the necessary services, which makes it one of the favourite options for tourists.


El Medano Beach

Another stunning beach with a Blue Flag that you can find in Tenerife is Playa de El Médano. A beach where you can also enjoy all the services and is located in the municipality of Granadilla de Abona. From here you can also enjoy the majestic view of the Montaña Roja volcanic cone, as well as practising sports such as surfing or windsurfing, among others. Another of its particularities is its sand with different shades of light brown.
