Playa Bollullo, Puerto de la Cruz
(4.4/5 based on 480+ 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.

  • The sand is black and the beach remains in shadow to 6 p.m. during the winter. The sunset is unique

  • Amazing Beach by the landscape. Not recommended for bathing. And access to it by car is very problematic since you have 500 metres of road where it can only be a single car and have to wait for that, come those who come to exit. A mess can be mounted if two cars cross in different ways.

  • We got there by accident while walking away from those parts. beautiful black sand beach from ocean noise, bright, and lifeguard always ready and alert saw the fury of the sea. not to be missed though to get there we must prepare for a "paseo" quite fraught.

  • 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.
