Playa de la Arena, Tenerife

(3.8/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Small family beach in edge of town. Too many tourists and concrete. I will not return to Tenerife. Prefer the charm of Lanzarote.

  • 黑色沙滩,这一点很有特色,别的就没什么了。比较小,几分钟就走遍。周围没有什么表较好的购物场所和饭店。救生员很负责,必须点个赞。 
  • Cozy lava beach with one of place and lovely waves. Nice place to spend with the children, then both the bath with the waves and lava sand entertained them for hours. A lot of restaurants around when you get hungry.
