I live on this island and trust me, this is the most beautiful and picturesque of all the beaches of Tenerife. And keep in mind, this is a wild beach too. So if you are looking for a beach with sunbeds, bars and crowds of tourists - this is not the beach for you! But if you are looking for... More

Nice quiet place because busses don't go this far. The town of Benijo isn't much, just a few resturants but the view over the bay and view from Benijo north is very special!

If you're in Anaga, no doubt you get pleasure from the wild natural landscapes, and Benijo beach does not disappoint, but if you are comparing to Los Cristianos, then these are worlds apart. After a rocky edge, you reach a black sand beach, interspersed with boulders. Although the sea and waves are ferocious, you can still dip your feet in,... More

This is with difference my favourite hideout of the island. Although it wasn't easy to get there it didn't disappoint me at all. Its natural beauty offers breathtaking images and sunsets in Benijo must be highlighted.

One of fav places in Tenerfie! Long climb down (and up when returning) the stairs is definitely worth it, as the rock formations are truly amazing!

As many would have said, the beaches of the north coast of Tenerife are radically different from those of the south. Aside from the north not being predominately tourist orientated, most of the beaches are still generally untouched. Although most beaches are dangerous due to currents and tides, there are ones in which you can swim in. You'll find along... More

It was very beautiful visiting it after the long and exciting drive from the south across the mountains - the ocean waves are great to look at and to listen to. Nearby it is a great bar Playa Casa Africa with a delicious octopuss. Be sure not to drink too much wine if you have to drive back across the... More

Really amazing view, you can walk along the seaside but will be very hard or impossible to swim due huge waves.
