Spent an hour walking here from Puerto but it was absolutely worth the jaunt. Although you can get a taxi to the top entrance there is still a few steps to climb down before reaching the beach. Obviously it's inaccessible to wheelchairs and people with walking difficulties. There's a bar on the beach and a place to rent parasols and... More

I did my research. I was looking for the best beach in Tenerife. After reading a lot of reviews (from local people! not tourists) we decided to go to El Bollullo. It was great! PRO: Black sand, no rocks, incredible waves, not a lot of people, two lifeguards, a little shop. CON: You can't really swim, the waves are to... More

We got a taxi here because I was unsure of the walk. Did not realise how steep it was to be able to actually get to the beach. Husband stayed at the top and I ventured down. Lovely scenery but I did not think it was anything special. Very loud music playing from the beach bar. I had expected peace... More

... beware .. a) it is very difficult to reach (experienced drivers managing narrow and steep roads), b) its a long walk down from the parking lot, c) there is a beach bar (loved it!), d) the waves are often so big and the current so strong that you cant actually swim. Surfers may risk e) sticky black sand ...... More

Really beautifull beach near Puerto de la Cruz. There is quite a few steps before arriving to the beach from the parking place, but the views on the way are amazing. Beware, black sand will be really hot when sun warms it up!

We did not know exactly where we were going so we took our towels and everything for a typical beach and we were surprised to see this creation of the nature. You can reach it with a car but to one place and you can leave your car in a paid parking then you have to continue walking, It is... More

We walked to this beach from Puerto de la Cruz. The pathway starts in La Paz and winds and turns along the coast all the way to this wonderful beach. A café greats the weary traveller for a nice cold beer or hot drink. And then of course the clean, clear Atlantic ocean for a swim and splash.
