Playa de la Arena, Tenerife

3.8
#10 of 30 in Beaches in Tenerife
Beach Beach / Pool Club
One Tenerife’s few natural beaches, Playa de la Arena makes up in cleanliness and beauty what it lacks in size. This small stretch of sand consistently wins European Blue Flag recognition for excellence. The black sand can get quite hot during summer, so make use of the lounge chairs and umbrellas for rent. When you want a break from the hard work of relaxing by the water, take a stroll to Los Gigantes, a set of cliffs overlooking the water. From here, you'll have commanding views of waves crashing into the rugged coastline. Cafes and restaurants line the beach.

    Visit the rocks left of the beach, the entrance on the way to the beach to the left that in the private sector. There among the rocks backwaters are quiet and clean with crabs

    A Black Beach, where the sand is burning and the sea is a bit treacherous as the tide, but it is worth to go snorkelling, especially on the right side of the beach, variety of fish close to the shore and undeterred to tourists. Good services, cheap (and indispensable) umbrella and the Pancho restaurant on the beach.
