Sunbeds available for 3 Euros each, black sands, a sea that could be dramatic and exciting one moment and calm an placid the next. A beach side café [we didn't use] is available and there are toilet!! Ideal for us to do some totty watching.

Has black volcanic sand, easier to wash off than some yellow sand. It is set in lovely gardens. Great for body boarding but if you aren't a really good swimmer just paddle or enjoy the beach.

A lovely beach and lots of gardens and flowers and ramped walkways. Lots of places in and around this area to sit and relax. The sand is black volcanic sand so if you go in the water it looks dirty on wet feet and hands. If its a hot sunny day and you walk on the sand in bare feet... More

Lovely spot. Large area of beach with black sand - which takes a bit of getting used to! Umbrellas and sun beds available for hire. Behind the beach is a garden area - hence the name - whch also has a small children's play area. Nice prom to walk along with a bandstand ( not in use when I visited)... More

we liked the shelter from the wind, the excellent service in the cafe and the peace and quiet to enjoy the winter sunshine (between the showers)

We usually stay on the other side of Puerto Cruz and don't venture this far west but I'm glad we did. There are three volcanic beaches and the third one is large and stone free so a little kinder under foot! There is a lower and upper paved walkway lined with nice trees and shrubs. Very much worth the walk... More

Love this beach, showers, loos and changing rooms - no need to struggle under your towel. Red flag and life guard so you know when it is too rough.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Playa Jardin. The waves are wonderful to watch and the surroundings/plants are well maintained and attractive. We didn't swim or even paddle but it was fun watching others from the cafe next to the beach. The toilets are clean but you need a small coin as a donation which is fair enough.

it was a nice beach. Lovely sand, nice atmosphere. A few families, couples. I was solo, but felt safe and peaceful. There is a lovely pathway/park next to the beach to walk along, which is very pleasant. No loud music from the nearby bar, so it's relaxing. I would recommend this beach.
