Teresitas Beach

Go for a swim at one of the Canary Island’s most beautiful beaches, a long stretch of golden sand set in a tranquil cove. 

With clear waters, soft sands and palm trees, it’s no surprise that Teresitas Beach is often compared to the stunning beaches of the Caribbean. Note that although the island is covered with mostly rough, black-sand beaches, Teresitas has imported yellow sands, making it a popular choice for locals and tourists alike. Although the beach can get a little crowded on weekends, the atmosphere remains remarkably laid-back. 

Beginning in the 1960s, this idyllic beach was covered with sands imported from the nearby Sahara Desert. It’s said to have taken over 4 million sacks of sand to cover the area, which stretches almost 5,000 feet (1,500 meters) long and 260 feet (80 meters) wide. An artificial reef and two breakwaters protect the waters off the coast from strong ocean currents. Swim in calm waters and look for small fish darting below the clear surface. 

Find a spot in the shade and admire the views of the Anaga Mountain range framing the beach. Build a sand castle or join one of the yoga or aerobics classes that often take place on the sand. Rent diving or snorkeling gear to get an underwater look at the beach’s reef and colorful fish. 

Stroll along the beach’s smooth sands, which are virtually free of rocks and stones. Look for the sea grape trees that are scattered along the coast. These produce a dark purple fruit with a tangy taste. 

When you’re ready for a meal, head to the nearby village of San Andrés. Located at the southern end of Las Teresitas, this quiet fishing hamlet has several excellent seafood restaurants. Try fresh fish or shellfish accompanied by a traditional Canarian side dish like papas arrugadas (potatoes boiled in their skins) and mojo sauce (a spicy pepper sauce).

Teresitas Beach is located 5 miles (8 kilometers) away from Santa Cruz de Tenerife on the island’s northeast coast. Access the beach by bus or find the large car park hidden behind palm trees toward the back of the beach.
