The black colour of the sand has the volcanic nature. Few people know that a direct skin contact with the black lava sand has an anti-rheumatism effect.

In consequence of Tenerife’s evolution, only a few natural beaches were formed. Due to the increasing number of tourists, the growing demand for public beaches appeared. Beaches created by men are the constant element of Tenerife landscapes.

Created around the tourist resorts, these beaches are of the best quality and cleanliness, with access to restaurants, bars and water sports.

Playa de las Teresitas is one of the best beaches situated near by the capital Santa Cruz. The extraordinary thing about it, is the fact that its sand was importet directly from Sahara.

One of the latest attractions in northern part of Tenerife is the Lago Martianez and the Martianez Beach in Puerto de la Cruz, which is being developed and modernized since the end of year 2007. The beach offers perfect conditions for surfers.

    Man made beaches like the three Tenerife beaches at Playa Jardin are indeed superb in Puerto de la Cruz, as pointed out by the author of this blog. In fact they are the works of landscaping design ideas of César Manrique. He was one of world best designers and landscape architects. He knew, how to blend in the environment with absolute perfection to create the most romantic moods for Canary Island holidays, such as in Tenerife.

    The Playa Jardin isn’t „man made“, but the Lago Martianez in Puerto de la Cruz and many beaches in the south of the island.
