Playa Bollullo, Puerto de la Cruz
(4.4/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
The dark, soft sand of Playa Bollullo is a product of volcanic activity millions of years ago. You'll see evidence of this in the tall, jagged cliffs and rocks along the borders of the beach. The only facilities are a small cafe serving tapas and bocadillos, or sandwiches, so this strip of sand stays relatively quiet even during peak tourist season. A 30-minute walk from Puerto de la Cruz will get you the water's edge. Be careful of strong currents and waves when swimming. By using our Puerto de la Cruz trip itinerary planner, you can arrange your visit to Playa Bollullo and other attractions in Puerto de la Cruz.

  • After a walk of 20 to 30 min following by or vs go! If you are leaving the city 45 minutes walk through the crops of bananas, otherwise you can get there by car, but in this case attention if you're not a fan of the small road or not draw sheet with reverse drop! The road is very narrow! 3 rd option leave you the car before attacking the lane road and you go down to walk 5-10 min, it is what we do. You'd find a small restaurant to cool off or eat a typical meal for about 10-€15. The beach is all simply splendid and worth! However careful the weather she was unfortunately shut down due to heavy swell! Too bad!

  • A wonderful natural beach of black sand. The access is not that easy compared to tourist beaches, but it really is worth getting there. The sand is very dark and the landscape around beautiful. I would recommend this beach over one of the big beaches of the island any day.
  • Well kept secret ..... Great 'out of the way' beach ..... Access is not easy .... A long walk (with lots of steps) or a tricky drive to get there but well worth the effort !
  • One of the nicest natural beaches in Tenerife
  • One of the best place in Tenerife :)
  • Beautiful beach. Not very easy to get to by car.
