The drive to Benijo is a unique experience by itself. The road is winding through the mountains with jaw dropping views and beautiful green woods to reach its climax at Benijo. This is where the road ends. A lot of tourists don't make it to the end of the road or in the Anaga mountains at all and they sure... More

Отличный дикий каменистый пляж. Нужно спуститься по довольно-таки длинной лестнице, а потом подняться по ней, что в жару офисным работникам тяжеловато. Но он того стоит! Чудесный пляж, мало народу, сильные волны, но вполне безопасно, если быть аккуратным. Стоит держаться подальше от камней. Мы получили огромное удовольствие от купания и последующего пикника с потрясающим видом! Наверху есть несколько кафе. Great wild... More

The road to Beijo itself is an attraction, espacially with the fogy weather we had. It felt like we are entering a fairytale. As we descended to the beach, the views were amazing and the waves were huge. Worh a visit, no doubt about it.

Playa Benijo in the north is a black volcanic sand beach that on a sunny day can be one of best places to sunbath on the island and is very popular with naturists. On an overcast or cloudy day this beach still offers some dramatic views on the way there and whilst you enjoy the waves. Be careful of the... More

It is a beautiful beach. I recommend to everyone. We drove from Santa Cruz is the path walked through the mountains ofAnaga Serpentines. I think that there is no other way. We left our car at the yellow restaurant. The path leads to the beach is stairs about 5 minutes. As we love wild beaches then this was probably the most beautiful Tenerife.

We drove from Golf de Sur stopping off at Playa de Las Teresitas before beginning the drive up to The Anaga mountains. Although it is a very twisty winding road with many hairpin bends we felt completely safe driving, the views are tremendous and at one point you can see both sides of the island. We had lunch at a...

We visited the Tenerife island and I think this was the nicest place we've been on the entire island. When going there from Santa Cruz, you will literally cross a mountain chain, climbing it in countless tight turns. After some 30 km you will end up again on the sea shore. When we were there, the place was packed, it... More

A short drive north of Taganana, this is the third beach you'll come to after the village. It's not obvious where to park, but if you draw up to a yellow walled restaurant on a hairpin bend you'll find some steps leading down to the beach, which is stunning with stark bassalt towers and grainy black sand. Bodyboarders with some... More
