The 5 best beaches in the north of Tenerife

Discover where you can enjoy these marvellous views. We offer you the 5 best beaches in the north of Tenerife, where you’ll discover places where you can relax, leave your worries aside and enjoy the wild landscape.
1. Playa de Benijos
The emblem of the north of Tenerife. Benijos Beach has virgin black sand and is located in Taganana, in the district of Anaga, in the municipality of La Laguna.
It’s one of the most photographed beaches thanks to its marvellous sunset, which combines with the currents in the water, the rocks, and the sunset.
It’s not a very wide beach, so you can enjoy it to the full during low tide hours. But be careful while swimming, due to the currents.
2. Playa el Bollullo
Undoubtedly one of the best beaches in the north of Tenerife. Playa del Bollullo, located in the municipality of La Orotava, is on the edge of a cliff.
It has a long stretch of beach, with black sand, which is interrupted by small rock formations of volcanic origin, creating a small cove between them.
3. Playa de Almácica
We return to Anaga, next to Benijo Beach, with the Almácica Beach.
Here you can discover a truly wild area, with an imposing beauty and suitable for all surf lovers.
Completely open to the ocean, it has very strong and changing currents, so if you want to spend the day here, you must take extreme precautions when bathing.
4. Playa de los Roques
The charm of this beach lies in the two volcanic rocks that resist the impact of the sea.
Playa de los Roques is located in the municipality of Los Realejos, very close to Puerto de la Cruz. At low tide, you can appreciate the mixture of black sand and pebbles, a very characteristic feature of this beach in the north of Tenerife.
5. Playa de los Guíos
We conclude our review of the best beaches in the north of Tenerife with a beach that has become famous in recent times: Playa de los Guíos.
Surrounded by the impressive cliffs of Los Gigantes, it’s a black sand beach, perfect for kayaking excursions.
