One of the best top attraction tips for Tenerife activites is that you can almost always count on the weather. There are very few days on the island without sunshine.
In this article, we’ll round up the best beaches in the south and later will continue with the northern side.
The weather is warm on the beach and the air is pleasantly cool in the mountains.
These are the best beaches to visit in the south:
A golden sandy beach with a beautiful ship’s floor. A great place for wave surfers and kite surfers. There is also a designated area for beaching. It’s usually windy and there are plenty of good bars. They are cheaper than the bars on the beaches of Costa Adeje.
An artificial Saharan golden sand beach is a favourite of the tourists. There is a large square, plenty of bars, restaurants and cafés and long walks along the ocean beach.
Beaches of Las Americas:
A continuation of Los Cristianos and part of the Costa Adeje are the beaches of Las Americas. They have several sandy beaches and a volcanic beach. The latter is being the surfing spot of the south, where wave surfers practice in good numbers.
Tips for Tenerife:
The beaches of Costa Adeje (Los Cristianos and Las Americas) are crowded so start early with a jog, run or walk and then sunbathe early when there is no crowd.
Playa del Duque:
Playa del Duque has two beaches. One is a golden sand beach the other is a black sand beach. Wide beaches are with usually fewer people on the black sandy part because in the summer and autumn the sun gets very hot. But in winter the black sandy beach can be excellent. It is one of our favourite beaches because it is very beautiful and you can walk for a long time.
Tips for Tenerife:
Walk to the fishing village of Caleta and enjoy the oceanfront plaza.
Play La Arena:
In the municipality of Puerto Santiago is the small beach of La Arena, with its black sand and beautiful location. From the beach and the promenade of Los Gigantes, a 15-20 minute walk away, the sunset is incomparable. The sun sets behind the nearby island of La Gomera, which offers a spectacular view and it is a top attraction.
Take a stroll along the promenade in front of the Barceló Santiago hotel for the most beautiful sunset views.
