Playa El Bollullo, Puerto de la Cruz

4.3
#6 of 8 in Parks in Puerto de la Cruz
Beach Nature / Park
The dark, soft sand of Playa El 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.
