If you're looking for a wild, remote beach and one of the most beautiful in Tenerife, then La Tejita beach is perfect for you. A beach that you will find in the south of the island and next to the Montaña Roja Nature Reserve. An old reddish volcanic crater, to which you will have spectacular views from this beach. A quiet, wild beach with golden sand, ideal for those looking for a place away from the tourist centres and especially for fans of sports such as surfing or windsurfing as the wind is another of the great protagonists in this sandy area.


Las Teresitas Beach

Playa de Las Teresitas is one of the best known beaches in Santa Cruz de Tenerife. A beach of golden sand and palm trees that you will find located in the town of San Andrés and that will transport you without a doubt to any paradisiacal beach you've dreamed of. It is also one of the favourite beaches for families, thanks to the tranquillity of its waves. All this, together with how close it is to the city centre, make it one of the favourite beaches on the island.

Benijo beach is another of those completely wild and beautiful beaches that you can find on the island of Tenerife and specifically on its north coast. A perfect black sand beach for those who want to escape the overcrowding of other well-known beaches, since in summer it has a medium occupation and low the rest of the year. Its access is another reason why this beach does not have many tourists and is that to get to it you will have to access it through a path with steps that you will have to go down for about fifteen minutes, but on the way back you it will need more time to go up. It is also advisable to be especially careful with the swell, as it is usually quite strong. The environment of nature and the landscape from it deserves at least one visit, as well as for its spectacular sunsets.


Masca Beach

A wild, isolated environment, with volcanic sand, surrounded by cliffs and with crystal clear waters. This is how we could define this small and beautiful beach of Masca located at the end of the riverbed of the Barranco de Masca. Another of its characteristics is its difficult access, for which you will have to approach either by boat or going down the ravine, which may take you between 2 and 4 hours of walking. An effort that will undoubtedly be worth it for its paradisiacal beach, but also for the impressive landscape that you will be able to see throughout the journey.


El Duque Beach

For those who prefer something more accessible and with all the comforts, El Duque Beach is another favourite. A beach with Blue Flag, which is located in the tourist area of ​​Costa Adeje and in front of some of the most exclusive and luxurious hotels on the island. With golden sand, crystal clear, clean and calm waters and with all the necessary services, which makes it one of the favourite options for tourists.


El Médano Beach
Another heavenly Blue Flag beach that you can find in Tenerife is El Médano Beach. A beach where you can also enjoy all the services and that you will find located in the municipality of Granadilla de Abona. From there you can also enjoy the majestic view of the Montaña Roja volcanic cone, as well as the practice of sports such as surfing or windsurfing, among others. Another of its peculiarities is its sand with different shades of light brown and the many tourists who decide to visit it, especially for its easy access and its beauty.
