“Nice beach”
Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

This was the best beach in Puerto de la Cruz. Black sand is hard to get out of your hair but not a lot you can do about that.

Lovely beach side cafe and toilets too

“Standards have fallen”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

We have just spent 13 of our 14 mornings at the beach and we have visited PDLC twice a year for about 20 years and this is the worst I have ever seen the beach.
Beer cans, water bottles, cigarette packets and other rubbish on the beach, often for a day or 2.
It is the first time I have though about wearing footwear to walk on the beach.
Twice the cleaners came out to clear seaweed and one guy made a token 10-15 min attempt at clear cigarette ends twice during the 2 weeks.
Since they scrapped the 20c entrance for the toilets they don't get cleaned as often and are in a poor state.
I would not recommend this beach to a new visitor.

“take flip flops!”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

Went to this beach (the Bollullo beach was inaccesible due to roadworks). We found a lot of free parking near the beach which is nice in a big city! We enjoyed our time on the beach allthough, being here for the first time, we didn't think to bring any kind of watershoes so it was very uncomfortable on the hot sand. Even a short stroll from our towel to the water was a 'challenge'.

“Beautiful beach”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

As family we liked to swim around and watch under water all the (little) fish that were beneath us. Clean beach, you have showers so that was good. Black sand = very hot for your feet.. My teenage daughters and I struggled with the wave breakers in the beginning..
