good scenery

Really nice scenery we did as part of a island tour and found this to be one of the most attractive areas well worth a visit even if just for a quick photograph

Really nothing to say! Perfect scenery. Really worth to drive across the whole island to see it! The road to there is one of the best scenic roads I have ever been.

Beautiful volcanic (black) sand beach with impressive rock formations. Best beach I visited in my Tenerife-La Gomera-La Palma trip in August 2015. Waves are quite strong and hence not ideal for swimming, but the surroundings are well worth the visit. Beach was not crowded, mostly Spanish tourists, some nude bathers, dogs are welcome. Access through steep staircase.

It's still unspoilt and luckily of the beaten track of bretons and other package tourists. Good for lovers of rough seas and landscape. Yet long and dangerous drive. Not recommended for flat land inhabitants. 😉

it is one of the wild beaches in Tenerife windy, 'and with a lot of tides the road is long and not easy to drive if you are surfing - great , if not - better avoid it

With the risk of making this little piece of heaven on earth a major touritistic attraction, I would like to say that this was probably the most beautiful and peaceful beach I've ever seen.

This is my absolute favourite place on the whole island. We had a couple of days off from work and we decided to go up north on a hiking trip. After getting lost in the forrest we could smell fresh sea air so we followd it and found this little gem. What a place after emerging from the forrest like... More

Another Tenerife. Forget about Tenerife's south and its tourist industry beaches. This is completely different style. If you like it wild and natural, then this is your place. Not so easy to find it, there is just one road going there from Santa Cruz de Tenerifea, crossing the Anaga mountains range, with spectacular views. And then the beach, lot of... More
