Very special beach, beautifully planted and abundant in green lizzards basking in the shade of the beautiful trees and flowers. When we were there, there were quite big waves, my daughter wanted to spend all the time in the sea. Lots of places to eat/get refreshments.

Some people find the gritty volcanic sand a bit uncomfortable but this beach is worth a visit. It is not a long walk alone the coast from the Port but it is quicker to go up to the main road past the Bus Station and then down the dual carriageway past the Cemetery to the eastern end of the beach....

Playa Jardin is ideally located near the Loro Parque, so quite convenient if you want to experience both during the same day. Like the rest of the beaches in this volcanic area, the sand is black. There are many amenities, and while there you can have food and refreshments at the on-site bars and restaurants and also access to well... More

It's a bit overcrowded. The sea is too rough most of the time. So not good for swimming or paddling as you can be swept off your feet very easily.

The beach is fine, there are swim guards (high waves sometimes!), washrooms and showers and a little restaurant. The price for 2 sunchairs and an umbrella was 8,50 EUR in May. That´s ok, I think. Better then getting burned. ;-) Don´t forget shoes for the beach. Black sand = Hot sand!!!

this is the black beach on the way to the Loro Parque and the old townof Punta Brava. It has excellent facilities for a good day at the beach. Sunbed and parasol hire, restaurant and snack bars, toilet and changing facilities with showers, ok there is a small charge for the use but it is well worth it. The sea... More

wonderful watching the sea crashing in, plenty of facilities eateries, toilets etc. Walk off the far end and you are in an old area of tenerife with little alleys that lead to houses right above the sea, Tapas bars and cafes and Loro park

Chain of splendid black sand beaches - best on Tenerife with half mile walk with cafes. The ocean is warm even in February for exhilarating swimming
