Well maintained surrounding area to this beach with gardens & a good paved area that compliments this beach.

The beach itself is in a nice cove, clean & tidy but the sea can get very wild at times.

There are no facilities at all but this beach is only a short walk to Playa Paraiso's main through road, with bars restaurants & supermarkets available nearby.

We walked around near sea and had little pause in this beach. Lots of families with babies, older children, picnic blankets and food and drink. So relaxing beach!

And then ahead of you in the sea is beautiful La Gomera. Wow! 😀🌴☀️

This beach was just a stone throw from the apartment I was in, so I was there a few times during my stay. I notice another reviewer said there was sun loungers, not during any of my visits!! Maybe it is just a certain time of year they are out or maybe they have stopped being out out.

It is a lovely quiet little beach but no facilities so if you were planning a day, take a picnic and a towel with you.

Sea was lovely and warm and great for swimming in. The beach is generally clean, the odd few cigarette butt lying about but the bins get emptied every morning

There are ongoing works at Playa las galgas and they are extensive. The width of the beach has been reduced and access is severely restricted with locked gates at either end of the path. The only way to access the beach is via the footpath behind the Buena Vista hotel, via a bridge that has been built to allow pedestrian access. It is not possible to access the beach via the footpath from Playa Paraiso end. The works are noisy and there is a lot of dust, spoiling the normally relaxed atmosphere of the bay. It looks like the works will be ongoing for some considerable time, they start at 8am and finish at 3.30pm Monfay to Friday. I have attached a few photos.

It's nice dark sand beach. You need water shoes as the here are a lot of stones in the shore. It's good with child as you can find sun shade under the palms

Although beautiful this is a volcanic beach and not ideal for younger kids that want to play in the sand, lovely for adults who want a quick swim and are staying nearby

There are some trees palm on the beach, a long promenade, high and styless buildings that do not fit in the landscape of Tenerife.
