Beach Nature / Park
Walk the palm-lined shores of one of the most popular beaches on the Canary Islands, Playa de las Teresitas. The beach stretches 1.5 km (1 mi) and features white sand as opposed to the black sand traditionally found throughout Tenerife.

The area is known for its fresh seafood, so be sure to stop in the nearby village of San Andrés for a meal if you can.
