We visited the Tenerife island and I think this was the nicest place we've been on the entire island. When going there from Santa Cruz, you will literally cross a mountain chain, climbing it in countless tight turns. After some 30 km you will end...More

Like other Canary Isles, Tenerife isn't blessed with many good natural beaches. There are a number of artificial beaches with imported sand and some decent beaches with natural black volcanic sand. Benijo isn't either of these. Though listed on some websites as one of Tenerife's...More

As soon as you park and reach the stairs leading down, your chin will fall. You can stand here for an hour and stare at the ocean. The beach gets down the stairs. Swimming is possible only at low tide. We were here after lunchtime...More

Low tide is essential, but pretty beach then if so. Nudists around! Car parking quite minimal. Lots of trails past this beach for walkers.

I loved so much this place. I arrived from Anaga Mountains in this beach. It was cloudy, windy, the sea was with enormous waves. A few people could have a swim, but here you feel nature on your skin. Probably Cristoforo Colombo saw the same...More

It's not just Playa Benijo that should be on your bucket list. The road that snakes up from San Andres and then down from the high Anagas into Taganana, hugging the coastline as it meanders past Playa de San Roque and Almaciga's wild surf before...More

One of the best maybe the best beach in Tenerife. The sites are in the north of the island and quite a tricky ride, but it's worthwhile for sure. It's one beach where the sunset is magnificent, black sand is glowing and smooth. It's a...More
