As a local said: if the beach is sunny, it's going to be windy. If it's cloudy, the air is calm. We picked a sunny day and experienced something way too extreme for a beach. The wind blew up to 40 km/h and the belongings...More

What a pity. Lovely sand and sea spoiled by the sight and smells of the oil industry. Oil tanks, rigs, a container port and a huge Tanker belching black diesel on the horizon. The pungent smells of petroleum encountered with every second breeze. We couldn’t...More

Beautiful beach. I think the most beautiful on tenerife. One of the few yellow beaches on Tenerfie with sand from Sahara. Cosy ocean, safe.

A beautiful sandy beach but unfortunately as ive read many times , its usually windswept . There is a regular bus service from the centre of Santa Cruz to the beach . Also there are some beach bars which serve meals and drinks .

A wonderful beach with a safe swimming area. The sand is beautiful and there are plenty of bars and cafes across the bay. There is also plenty of parking. We will be back on our next trip to Tenerife.

Worth a visit, can be windy but it’s a golden sandy beach which isn’t normally the case in Tenerife and relaxing away from the traffic in Santa Cruz

Not sure near the beach, best look at T/A reviews, but have stayed at the Silken in Santa Cruz, which is very good & about 15-30 min drive away Well worth going

Yes of course you can ... the beach at Playa de las Teresitas is wonderful soft sand. . . it was imported from the Sahara Desert, so that's why it is a golden colour, unlike the rest of Tenerife that has black sand... More
