Playa Jardin, Puerto de la Cruz
(4/5 based on 1,400+ 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.

  • Everything seems great! the ocean is a beautiful, clean beach, volleyball, girls topless, but there is one but! Just the way to freely swim will not give! A little wave and podymutsja here ocepljajut with rescuers all the beach-no go more than knee-deep! Swim normally never gave!

  • If you are in Puerto de la Cruz, have on the Playa Jardín. Here the wind whistles, here the Atlantic rushes, here BB´s smells of salt and fish.

  • Wonderful view, looking walk on the coast but worth it, seats everywhere to rest. There also place for swimming. Great view nice shops.

  • 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
