A nice beach with a soft and dark sand but sea is there rough good for surfers. So one must be careful while swimming, the currents or waves can be too strong. Unfortunately the beach is about one hour walk from Puerto de la Cruz downtown but still worth of walking so far away. This is the beach where you... More

An interesting walk along the coast/banana plantations takes you to Bollullo, where there as a great cafe with typical canarian meal of the day. When you approach the beach don't look over the wall - where it seems half of Tenerife have thrown their rubbish. Go down to the beach and watch the waves crashing in - wonderful

Bollullo is about 20minutes 'walk' from La Paz through the banana plantation, down the baranco, up again, past the restaurante and down to the first beach there the bar provides cold beer and generous sandwiches. The sand is Black and Hot, the surf can be dangerous,but the situation warrants the effort. If you are really adventurous carry on another 10... More

Of course this is quite a stunning location and worth the long walk. There is another beach on from it which sadly is a little bit inaccessible as the path has collapsed. Still worth going on foot just to esperience the Tenerife countryside

This is one of the locals beaches. Nice sand, lovely waves and a funny beach bar. Be aware of the extremely hot sand. I guess you can use it to frie eggs....

Take a taxi to the beach, walk down and lay on the black sand. The beach is too dangerous to swim in as the waves are huge, but you can go in as far as your knees, but be careful. Sea not at all suitable for children, but you can sit in the little cabana and look at that magnificent... More

Lovely sand, if you like it black, with traces of gold! It's about an hour's walk from Puerto de la Cruz, which is a fairly pleasant walk. However, I wouldn't bother to go there when other beaches are closer to Puerto and which do not involve such a walk, and uphill/downhill climbs. It is also recommended that you do not... More

Wonderful beach hidden off the beaten track. It takes a little effort to get there from PDLC walking, but when you find it, you will find it was worth the effort. Its a lovely wide soft sandy beach surrounded by high rocks. It has a very shallow sea shelf which makes it perfect for wading out but not going too... More

A truly must. Beautiful black beach. Pure unbelievable nature. Unfortunately it was red flag during our visit but doesn't matter. It has very nice caffe bar. Parking is in a private property and they charge 1 euro.

Nice beach. You can access by car or walking from La Paz area of Puerto de la Cruz (easy). There is a restaurant (and parking)near the beach during day time. The beach itself, like all northern beaches, is of black sand. You may walk further to the beach of Los Patos" and "Ancon", both being completely unattended by life guards.... More
