Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands whose climate is warm and sunny all year round. It has a huge selection of holiday resorts, many of which are very lively and offer superb beaches.
If you’re looking for a beach with soft golden sand then Playa de las Teresitas is the jewel in the crown of Tenerife’s golden wonders. Add palm trees and a stunning mountain backdrop and you’ve got a perfect setting for some winter sunshine.
If you’re looking for a quieter alternative then Playa de la Tejita is another pale golden beach. But be warned, Tejita can get quite winding and is very popular with kite flyers.
Black Sand Beaches
Playa Socorro is a wonderful black sand beach, typical of many of the beaches in the north of the island. Here you’ll find one of the most picturesque stretches of Tenerife’s coastline.
Secluded Sun Spots
El Puertito, Playa de los Abriguitos and Playa Grande are three beaches that should take you away from the madding crowds. They’re all relatively small beaches but well worth a visit if you’re looking for a secluded sun spot.
