Playa Jardin, Puerto de la Cruz

3.8
#2 of 16 in Outdoors in Puerto de la Cruz
Surf some of Tenerife’s largest waves at Playa Jardin. The beach features dark, volcanic sand set against a lush, tropical garden backdrop. Bask in the warm island sun while enjoying views of the famous Teide volcano or grab your snorkeling gear to search the clear, shallow waters for local sea creatures. Bring sandals to the beach as the black sand tends to be very hot to walk on.
