Playa de las Teresitas, Santa Cruz de Tenerife

    A large artificial beach with sand brought from the Sahara. The points positive beach weather with a mountain view, food stalls everywhere on the road to price low, showers, cabins for changing, toilets, easy access by bus (910). The negative points of the water which stagnates and surely pollute located not far from the port.

    A horrible shock in this space that could believe protected several oil rigs spoil the setting, please do not condone this skid, it's a shame.

    A large, far is shallow, bathers protects a breakwater, so even big waves do not interfere in the bath. Near parking and restaurants. Worth a look, as are Tenerife beaches with black sand or stones.
