Isle of Tenerife

The most beautiful beaches in the south of Tenerife

Tenerife, with its almost 360 kilometers long coastline, offers a huge variety of natural beaches and several formed by men.

One of the most beautiful beaches is the Playa de las Teresitas in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, the capital of the island. Sand from the Sahara desert has been brought to make this beach perfect.

In the south of the island you can find different natural sandy beaches at El Medano and artificially created ones in the tourist resorts like Las Americas and Los Cristianos.

Beach Los Cristianos

Particularly, the southern part of the island has very easy access to water. In the major tourist resorts of Playa de las Americas, Los Cristianos and Costa Adeje, you will find some of the island’s most spectacular beaches.

It is worth pointing out that several of them gained a reward of the European Blue Flag for their clear water and clean sand.

In Los Cristianos you will find two main beaches and several smaller ones, which are situated close to the hotels. The Los Cristianos beach is suitable especially for children. Additionally, it posses plenty of playgrounds and guarantees a great family atmosphere. So Los Cristianos is a good choice if you want to spend your vacation with your family

Playa de las Americas posses probably the most famous beach on the whole island of tenerife: Playa de Troya. It has not only shallow water and a great selection of restaurants and bars, but also many water sports options, particularly surfing due to large waves, which appear when the sea is more rough than usual.

Promenade Playa de las Americas

If you would like to snorkel or to have some good fish on lunch, you should definitely spend some time on the coast of Costa Adeje with its small and rather stone beach: La Caleta.
This is also a perfect place to rest from other tourists, as a little known cove with a sandy beach: Playa de la Enramada is situated just between Las Americas and La Caleta.
