Playa Jardin, Puerto de la Cruz

(4/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Visited this beach on a day when the red flag was flying so no swimming was possible, but still good for a paddle and sandcastle building. Nice cafe at the back, and close to other shopping areas.  more »
  • Sand beach black and fat, quite crowded for Hull City but nice, has bar, sun beds and showers. It is very comfortable staying in Puerto de la Cruz

  • Better then the beach further along Jardin. Has some shade from the palm trees and is a little quieter. Not enough in the way of ice creams parlours and bars though. Good clean toilets too
  • I think it's the best beach in Santa Cruz
  • Great beach if you like black volcanic sand. (I do, in spite of its leaving your feet black, because it's warm and doesn't glare.) Cafe with terrace for food and drinks. Public bathrooms available. Be careful as water can be treacherous.
  • This beach is impressive especially when you see her for the first time . Undoubtedly the best beach in Puerto de la Cruz . Black sand of volcanic origin is impressive, but by its color can become very hot , and walked on bare foot can be difficult. The entrance to the water is quite rocky , so make sure you take swimming shoes . At the beach you can find showers to wash off after compiling in salt water which is very useful .
  • Nice classic black beach with nice park
