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.

  • Black sand beach located west of downtown. Has all the facilities (showers, WC, lounge chairs). In the background the snowy (in March) silhouette of the Teide. Nearby, a beautiful garden and a field of pebbles. The day of my visit, swimming was prohibited because the sea was too rough (we don't have access to water). The foam tinged a light haze landscape. Very pretty.

  • Very nice and large beach with black sand, quite close to the city centre, easy reachable by walk. Definitely recommend to visit it, but be careful, in case of high waves the access is prohibited.  more »
  • Possibly the best beach in Porto De la Cruz but nothing special. Dangerous water and ciggy stumps doesn't make it good for families. Better at the lago martinez  more »
