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

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

We visited this area after an exciting drive up from Los Christianos through the mountains. The sight of the Atlantic breakers pounding the shore line is awesome. We had grilled sardines at "La Venta de Marrero" overlooking the beach in glorious sunshine, doesn't get much better! Well worth the effort.

Forget the hairpin turns on the road to Masca which is sold to tourisst. For an exciting drive take the road from Santa Cruz to Taganana and beyond to Playa Roque de las Bodegas and finally Playa Benijo. This is a dead end so you go back the same way you came. If you get lost on the way back... More

Probably the best beach on the island. Well worth the drive getting there as you feel like you are in another world. Ideal place to chill out and relax.

Beautiful setting for stunning photos at any time of day. But if you want comfortable access, not too long a drive, and nice sand and a place to bathe, try another beach. This one is remote, you´ll probably come here if you´re adventurous and enjoy going out driving in the mountains.
