Playa de las Teresitas, Santa Cruz de Tenerife

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. Take a dip in the calm, clear water, appreciating the backdrop of the mountains, or start up a game of beach volleyball. 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.

  • 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.
