  • We have stayed twice at this beach during our holiday in Tenerife, although it was about an hour from our apartment. Despite the wind Beach very well taken care of with all the services, calm seas and warm. perfect for toddlers. Shame about the tankers always present in largo (ruining a little the panorama). Do not take coffee/cappuccino at the kiosko Carmel. Excellent cuisine and Sara kiosk fried calamari good and gilt, octopus salad abundant, very good tortillas. Good and cheap beer.

  • For a day trip we made to us here from the South. The beach is sandy and well maintained. In the morning, it was little going on. The water is clear, clean and flat and has hardly any waves. €8 are required per screen.

  • Stunning Beach, hoping the sea as flat, but despite everything was crystal clear! If you are nearby you can not take a dip here!!
