Los Cristianos beach is located in the same town in the south of the island of Tenerife. Despite its small size, it will draw your attention to the fact, that it is located in the port area. Once on the sand of Los Cristianos, you will be curious to consider cruise ferries, yachts and fishing boats. The convenient location of the beach (close to the bus station, church, shops and cafes) will also please you. Small waves will allow you to swim longer, and fine gray sand will be convenient for walking along it and for building majestic castles. The beach of Los Cristianos is suitable for travelers who do not like noise and fuss. A beautiful, recently renovated embankment with comfortable benches will allow you to enjoy lush palm trees and surroundings.
The beach of Las Vistas is another recreation area of Los Cristianos, it is located behind the port. This beach is wider and bigger than its neighbor. Here you will find a developed infrastructure: bars, cafes, shops, water transport rental, etc. People of different ages prefer to relax on the golden sands of Las Vistas, but there are more young people here, than Los Cristianos. The beach is equipped with wooden platforms for people with disabilities. Next to Las Vistas luxury hotels are built, from the windows of which you can watch the magic sunsets. Near the beach begins the zone of Las Americas with an abundance of shopping centers, disco bars, restaurants and other entertainment.
A cozy little beach with reed umbrellas is located near the Las Vistas beach, if you walk in the direction from Los Cristianos to Las Americas. This beach will appeal to you with its picturesque palm avenue, a green lawn, where you can rest and its small size. The entrance to the water is convenient, which will allow swimming here of children, adults and elderly people. Breakwaters protect the water area from the raids of ocean waves. Near the beach you will find a beautiful tropical café, shops, a surf school. On the beach you can rent catamarans and jet skis. Next to El Camison is the street of Las Piramidas, which will take you to the center of Las Americas. If you are not interested in noisy entertainment, you will enjoy a walk along the beach in the direction of Costa Adeje, and you will like the sight of unrestrained ocean, luxury hotels, cactus gardens. In my opinion, all tourists, who come to the south of Tenerife, are a must see El Camison and its environs.
Playa Fanabe is considered one of the best holiday destinations in Costa Adeje. He and the beach of El Duke located behind him attract a lot of tourists from Scandinavian countries, Germany and Great Britain to its golden sand. For the developed infrastructure and purity of water and land, Fanabe was awarded the Blue Flag award more than once. The large size of the beach will accommodate hundreds of holidaymakers here, and several breakwaters will protect themselves from the power of the ocean. In good weather it’s nice to be here, but when a strong wind blows, it’s impossible to swim in the Atlantic, because of the stormy waves breaking through the stone barriers. The entrance to the water is not very convenient, because of the stones lying on the bottom. On the shore you will find shops and a beautiful promenade.
The Jardin beach is located in the city of Puerto de la Cruz in the north of Tenerife island. The territory of Jardin is equipped according to the design of the famous Canarian designer Cesar Manrique. Part of the beach, adjacent to the shore, is buried in the greenery of coconut palms, and on the east side there is a huge pier, from which you can see the whole beach, as well as the Teide volcano, towering above the island (in good weather). Playa jardin is a beach with black volcanic sand, which, having dried on the body, easily leaves it. Bathe in the water area of the beach can be long, but the entrance to the water is hampered by large pebbles and volcanic stones. When the wind blows, the waves crash on the shore, and it’s not easy to go into the water. On the territory of Jardin beach you can enjoy relaxing in a deck chair. Here you can also grab a snack in the café and rent a surfboard, because some of the beach is suitable for practicing this sport.

Torviscas beach is suitable for those tourists, who do not like to swim in the big waves. From the ocean power, its water area is protected by several brekvaters, overgrown with herbs, and 2 moles, located on both sides of the beach.
