Playa Bollullo, Puerto de la Cruz

(4.5/5 based on 500+ 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.

  • A lovely walk on a pleasant day. Through the banana fields and along the coast. You can make this a longer walk by looping up to the road and back to Puerta de la Cruz. Lots of stops for great photogr...  more »
  • The walk from Puerto de la Cruz is very nice with lots of different types of scenery. The beautiful black sand beach has a small beach bar and a lifeguard. Simply stunning place to spend a few hours.  more »
  • This beach is absolutely stunning. From Puerto de la cruz it is about an hour hike, and it is more than worth it! The sand is soft and the beach is so clean. The water is good for playing in the waves...  more »

  • 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.
