This little harbour is very picturesque with a lovely walkway around the beach. The sand is volcanic so black. There are lots of good restaurants, cafes and shops in this location too. I really like this place!

A little off the beaten track find this once busy fishing port. It now hosts a small number of boats but boasts a great beach protected by the harbour. Some nice place to eat the one we found right on the beach offered a nice...More

Stopped for a walk along the sea front, parking was at a premium and a lot of building work near the harbour was going on detracting from its current beauty, I'm sure it will be good when finished.

Come here if you want to get away from the touristy crowded beaches in Los Cristianos or Las Americas. Pay the few bucks for sun chairs and umbrellas and the guy will also serve you food and drinks from the bar. 5€ Mojitos say it...More

Is this a question? No there is no MacDonalds just tapas bars, small restaurants and a few shops. It is in Tenerife and well worth a visit. Nice little beach too.
