Playa Jardín is maybe the most beautiful beach in the north of Tenerife. Located in the city Puerto de la Cruz and not far away from the famous Loro Parque.

The beach-area is surrounded by exotic plants and an artificial waterfall in the biggest part of the beach.

The beach is devided in three parts and each of these parts has its own characteristics.

The first part is Playa Castillo with shady palms, rough sand and a lot of little stones which makes it difficult to enter the sea. The next part is El Charcón the smallest of all which has less stones and more privacy.

And last but not least there is Punta Brava which has very fine black sand.

The playground near the waterfall and the warm black sand of Playa Jardín makes it also a paradise for young children. Furhtermore the beach promenade offers a wide range of cafés and restaurants.

Playa de la Tejita

Playa de la Tejita – the nature beach

The natural beach Playa de la Tejita is a real insider tip because during the week the beach is nearly empty and practically no tourists. Because of its isolation many nudists use this beach although it is not an official nudist beach.

The shore isn’t very deep here. This makes the beach ideal for relaxing and bathing. Another highlight is to observe the planes starting and landing at the airport near by. One disadvantage of the beach is that there are  no toilets and douches.
