Too windy
Apr 2021 • Couples
If you don’t want a sand on your whole body don’t go there. In windy conditions you can’t relax easily, it gets extremely annoying. The beach is pretty but it’s not worth it when you just want to swim or sunbath.

Forget the driving time until there ...and mark it on your GPS...
Quiet white sand beach, no waves, big parking, cheap umbrella and sun beds, a few bars with also cheap and great food... showers available and a great day to pass by there...I recommend it

Good for all types of swimmers
Dec 2020 • Couples
My husband is not a good swimmer and this beach was great for him as you can reach the seabed well into the sea. There is also a barrier preventing huge waves. Nice after a hike in Anaga.

Beautiful beach
Oct 2020 • Family
Absolutely lovely beach worth a visit when you're here in Tenerife! Lovely clear waters... Watch out for light fingered opportunist thieves ( we had our money stolen from two separate purses that were in the boot of our car)! Which of course took away from our otherwise fantastic trip to the beach!

Lovely beach- may get busy!
Aug 2020
So! we came to Tenerife for 2 weeks in August 2020 during what must be the hardest summer for tourist businesses, COVID saw volumes of people down to 25% of normal with very few English or German people on holiday. The first half of my review is of the beach, and the second half about Flow Beach Club, where we always went.

The Beach!

Long, white, perfect sand with a rock wall to form a safe area, this is 100% manufactured for the tourist market, and it's very good. Easy to get to only about 5 miles outside Santa Cruz in the small town of San Andres, which is a "Beach Town". There is a car-park (which is free) with many beach clubs with sun loungers and food, an ice-cream van and a regular bus service. The water is shallow enough for everyone to be able to swim and not too cold (because of the barrier and the shallowness). Obviously, being Tenerife, it is colder than you may think if you haven't been before.

This is a "mixed used" beach. It's where everyone comes- tourists, "body beautiful" local 20-somethings, families, old grannies and we saw the police here a few times, so it's safe. It's also life-guarded at peak times, and there are pedalos to hire. Local people also get pizzas delivered here, and people come for birthday parties and rock-off after work for a bit of sun before supper.

Downsides would be the wind- it can get quite windy and anything left on the sand will get covered quite soon; and the heat of the sand- it really does get HOT on hot days and you'll need to run to the water. Also, we came in the quietest year ever- this will get very, very busy in a good summer where there isn't plague.

FLOW BEACH BAR

I naturally assume that hiring sun loungers on a popular beach will be expensive and that food will be rubbish, drinks over priced and not very nice. Flow disproved all of these things. Having experienced the high winds on our first day, and feeling sand blasted, I asked how much a lounger would be. At €2 a day, with umbrellas another €2, this is a great value and semi-luxurious way to enjoy the beach. We ate here twice (once burgers, once squid sandwiches) and for a beach-bar, the food is very good- simple, quick, not expensive. Drinks likewise, beer (€3.50 a pint) and long, big cocktails (€9) may be more expensive than downtown but are a luxury item on the beach. There is at-lounger service as well as a covered area. English is spoken to some extent everywhere.

The staff were lovely- keen to keep the place clean, very friendly and only young- early 20s probably not earning much and with a can-do attitude during a difficult time. Music may sometimes seem a bit loud, groups of local young people (girls as much as boys) may let their hair down a bit, but so what, it's a holiday. There is also a scheme by which you pay €20 for sun loungers and then that acts as bar-credit for food and drink, and you pay the difference at the end, or PAYG, either seems to work. Cards taken just as much as cash

Could've been our #1 favorite beach if it weren't for...
Jul 2020
...learning the hard way that during the Summer months you often get wind gusts that cover you and your things in sand. Such a pity, because otherwise they also have everything you would want/need. Parasols for rent, a bar for drinks (probably even food), beautiful golden-yellow sand, an amazing view, etc.

So, hopefully one day we can visit without sand being blown into our eyes and everywhere and then perhaps we can upgrade it from a 4/5.

So windy!
Jul 2020
I gave this beach 4 stars only because it was so so windy! And the wind was blowing sand from different directions to our faces. Other than that beautiful, big waves

Nice beach on the north of Santa Cruz, pretty calm. You have a nice panorama if you go up the closest mountain.
