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.

We drove from Golf de Sur stopping off at Playa de Las Teresitas before beginning the drive up to The Anaga mountains. Although it is a very twisty winding road with many hairpin bends we felt completely safe driving, the views are tremendous and at...More

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

A short drive north of Taganana, this is the third beach you'll come to after the village. It's not obvious where to park, but if you draw up to a yellow walled restaurant on a hairpin bend you'll find some steps leading down to the...More

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
