Some reviews say it's windy and the sea is dangerous. I didn't find that. It can be windy but if you go close to the Red Rock you are sheltered. Sea was fine but for swimmers as waves can be large, which I thought was...More

Large, windy, sunny beach! One of the few great places in Tenerife (which overall disapponted me). Dark sand and roary ocean (be careful). Sometimes the wind in very annoying: I visited twice. Beware: there a re nudist (just in case)

Not so good as a bathing or sitting beach. Loads to watch but really breezy which is why it is so popular with kite and windsurfers. But wind blows sand in your face and the breakers are big-plus the kite surfers are in and out...More

As soon as we parked the car, we loved the beautiful landscape! The red mountain on the left of the beach gives you a sensation of infinity. The beach itself is big, with plenty of space for everyone, and beautiful. On the left there are...More

I stayed in an apartment near this beach and was excited to be able to go to a beach whenever I wanted. However, this part of Tenerife is VERY windy. I have videos on my phone where you can just hear the wind whipping and...More

I didn’t know that this beach allowed nudistes, however had it have been a normal nudist beach with people lazing in the sun being respectful I wouldn’t have minded. I was travelling alone wanting a relaxing holiday as I lost my husband a few months...More

Faulous Beach really enjoyed our time there. Lots of little nooks to fine a fab spot to soak up some sun rays. Just bring some water and essentials as you are in the middle of nowhere.

Basically you can lay your clothes off wherever you want over there. Most of all nude people stays in the middle or at the eastern point of the beach. If you get closer to Punta del Confital you'll find more families, so... More
