  • Which Tenerife Beach Is the Perfect Match for You?

    It’s holiday time and you’ve opted for a holiday in Tenerife, which has to be one of the best beach holiday destinations on the Planet, and why not? The sun shines and there are activities galore you can do out there while it shines down, whether you’re bathing in the sea or just soaking up the sun on the sands. There’s also lots of choice, so we’ve picked out of some of the finest beaches on the island so you can truly enjoy your holiday in the sun.

    Beaches for sunbathers

    Playa del Duque, in the Tenerife resort of Costa Adeje, is the perfect beach for travellers who are seeking the best beaches in Tenerife. This popular beach has everything you need to relax— sun loungers galore, a huge stretch of white sand and dreamy turquoise waters.

    The shore is also lined with restaurants, lively bars and, if you’re itching to go on a shopping spree, you can venture out a little bit further to find the designer shopping centre Plaza del Duque. This upmarket area of Tenerife is an absolute pleasure to visit and while away the hours in, and there’s always somewhere new to try. Playa del Duque is the ideal place for anyone who’s happiest when working on their tan with a cold cocktail or a delicious meal within arm’s reach.

    Beaches for surfers

    If surfing is your main priority, get yourself to Playa de Guincho and this will be one of the best beach holidays you’ll ever have. This hidden gem is relatively unknown to tourists but is a firm favourite with surfers and windsurfers alike. Situated approximately an hour by car from resorts such as Los Cristianos, the winds blow strong to provide some serious surfing opportunities.

    Although the beach itself is fairly rocky, you’ve found yourself a match if you’re looking for water sports. Pick up some equipment before you get there as due to the small, secluded nature of this beach there isn’t any equipment available on the beach meaning no long queues and extra time to spend in the water!

    Beaches for all the family

    Planning your beach holidays when you have young children can be a little bit more complicated than travelling as a couple, but Tenerife is full of beaches that cater for families of all ages.

    Los Cristianos is one such beach and is among the best beach destinations in Tenerife for young families. The calm waters and large shallow area create safe paddling zones for toddlers have made this part of Tenerife a hit with families. A good all-rounder beach, pack up your bucket and spade and make your way to Los Cristianos, just a short bus ride away from Playa de las Americas, and get plenty of snaps to take home of your family holidays in Tenerife!  

    Another family favourite is Playa Fañabe, also known for its tranquil and shallow waters and low winds. Your kids will get hours of enjoyment out of the ocean bouncy castle and crazy golf park located at the nearby shopping centre if you fancy trying something a little bit different.
