Definitely worthwhile. Besides the beach, the way to get there is very special, but it is a bit of a tough drive if you are with children. We started the drive towards Benijo late in the afternoon … our child was complaining at the beginning...More

Playa de Benijo was by far the best part of our trip. It was the only day we felt truly on vacation. Large volcanic rock jut out of the water, and the beach is large and made up of natural fine black volcanic sand beach....More

The drive to Benijo is a unique experience by itself. The road is winding through the mountains with jaw dropping views and beautiful green woods to reach its climax at Benijo. This is where the road ends. A lot of tourists don't make it to...More

Отличный дикий каменистый пляж. Нужно спуститься по довольно-таки длинной лестнице, а потом подняться по ней, что в жару офисным работникам тяжеловато. Но он того стоит! Чудесный пляж, мало народу, сильные волны, но вполне безопасно, если быть аккуратным. Стоит держаться подальше от камней. Мы получили огромное...More

The road to Beijo itself is an attraction, espacially with the fogy weather we had. It felt like we are entering a fairytale. As we descended to the beach, the views were amazing and the waves were huge. Worh a visit, no doubt about it.

It is a beautiful beach. I recommend to everyone. We drove from Santa Cruz is the path walked through the mountains ofAnaga Serpentines. I think that there is no other way. We left our car at the yellow restaurant. The path leads to the beach is stairs about 5 minutes. As we love wild beaches then this was probably the most beautiful Tenerife.

Sorry, can't comment. The road was intact when we were there in May 2018. It's a bit tortuous - winding and mountainous - but we saw no noticeable damage
