Photo Gallery » Beaches in Tenerife

If you like to sunbathe then Tenerife is for you! Beautiful beaches with golden sand in the tourist resorts of Playa de las Américas, Los Cristianos, Playa de Las Teresitas, La Tejita, El Duque. But there are always a lot of people there ... And my favorite - natural beaches with black sand, gravel, rocks and rocks: Playa de Benijo, Masca, Los Gigantes, Playa El Bollullo.

You can find such natural pools in many places on the coast of the Canary Islands. A breakwater made of rocks or concrete separates the bay from the ocean. You can see in the picture: Piscina Natural Acantilado D in Los Gigantes.

When I see such black sand on the beach, it always seems to me that the clothing or towel will be black :-)

Beach with golden sand at the tourist resort of Los Cristianos at Playa de las Americas. The south of Tenerife is much warmer and more sunny from the north. Waves in the ocean are also much smaller here.

It's an ocean and you can see it by the size of the waves! Waves of over 2 meters high appeared suddenly.

An evening walk and admiring the sunset behind the island of La Gomera. Evenings in Tenerife in November were very warm - usually it was over 20°C - once even over 25°C.

We stayed here:


Hotel Blue Sea Lagos De Cesar, Tenerife

Calle José González González
38683 Santiago, Santa Cruz de Tenerife
Canary Islands, Tenerife, Spain

The main advantage of this hotel was the location close to interesting places in Tenerife: Los Gigantes, Masca Gorge and good access to Teide Volcano.

The hotel is very clean, there were no insects :-) and the biggest advantage of the room we received was its size - it was a 3 bedroom studio: living room with balcony, bathroom with bathtub, twin bedroom and big wardrobe and an extra room with single bed.
