Really nice beach but can vary alot with waves. First day we visited was lovely and calm, second day we visited was a bit of waves for fun but wouldnt be good for those who aren't confident swimmers. Third day, half the beach was closed for swimming because of waves which is disappointing but still could walk down a minute or so further down the beach to swim.

One of the many and varied beaches on this stretch of coastline, all served by a lovely coastal path. This little beach is popular with tourists and locals, some prefer to sunbath on the nice grass verge next to the path. There is a big hotel just behind the beach and many of the guests seem to prefer the beach to their swimming pool. I can understand why!
There is a beach bar which can supply most needs and some restaurants too. The sand quality here is really nice but the beach can get busy.

If you walk the coastline path you will come across many beaches, and they all have a character of their own. This one is a lovely sheltered family beach, popular with locals and hotel guests who prefer it to the hotel pool.
It does get busy and some, particularly the locals, sunbath on the grass area off the footpath.
There is a beach bar selling most things you might need but shops are a fair walk from the beach. There are toilets here too. No wonder this beach is so popular.

Small but nice and accessible beach close to hotels. It wasn’t overcrowded even during weekend (probably due to travel restrictions). Beach is shletered by a wharf so there are not big waves. Sunbeds are for fee (not expensive). There is also a snack bar.

Nice beach. I think it is one of the less crowdy places in playa de las Americas. You can find free space.

The beach is currently undergoing major structural work until late September 2017 and is mainly closed to the public. See attached photos and is full of heavy & very noisy plant equipment that operate from dawn to dusk, a fact that the travel holiday companies and hotels seem to have conveniently forgotten . If you enjoy watching men at work, this is the place for you. Alternatively, if you have already booked a sea view, a pair of earplugs might be useful.

Great beach plenty of room. Be careful of current though on edge of beach. When you paddle you must be careful you don't get swept back out due to sand movements due to current.

We swam at this beach every morning, the sea is lovely, and this is a beautifully sheltered beach with occasional big waves when a boat goes past. Fish come into the shallows and swim around you feet before your knees are underwater - some people feed them. You can swim out a long way safely, the boating and swimming areas are clearly separated There are showers and toilets and little cafes to buy drinks or food, it is also a short walk to larger cafes or shopping areas. There are also grqass areas for people who don't like the sand. The lifeguards are accessible and visible too. Avoid the rocky area towards the centre of the beach - if you try and put your feet down they will scratch you to pieces, the beach is also a bit uneven. Otherwise, perfect.

Sadly whilst on a visit there last weekend we were witness to a drowning, poor emergency services reaction speeds and no respect to the dead person or concern shown to his grieving family. There are many beach goers and no warnings of the strong currents and very little lifeguard support on hand. Please think twice before swimming as idyllic as the sea appears it is VERY dangerous and no one on hand to help.

This is a lovely, sandy, sheltered bay which does not get too rough. I cannot swim very well, but we went to Playa Camison every day and by the end of the week I became a much stronger swimmer.
