We visited the Tenerife island and I think this was the nicest place we've been on the entire island. When going there from Santa Cruz, you will literally cross a mountain chain, climbing it in countless tight turns. After some 30 km you will end...More

Like other Canary Isles, Tenerife isn't blessed with many good natural beaches. There are a number of artificial beaches with imported sand and some decent beaches with natural black volcanic sand. Benijo isn't either of these. Though listed on some websites as one of Tenerife's...More

My rating refers not to the beach itself but to the way to access it. The beach itself simply beautiful with breathtaking views, nice black sand and gorgeous mountains in the back. The sunsets there are not to miss! BUT getting there by car was...More

A beautiful untouched black sanded beach. There are no sunbeds, umbrellas, not even a toilet or a trash can, but this just makes it more amazing. The view is stunning and the road to here through Anaga is breathtaking. It's a good place to surfers...More

This beach is really beautiful. You have to be careful, make sure you are there at low tide, when the tide comes in the beach almost disappears. To get there, you have to come by car or walk from Almaciga along the road, and finally...More
