The beach is on north of the village of San Andrés and is one of the best beaches of Tenerife. Its not a natural beach, but the sand is imported from the Sahara Desert. Nevertheless the sand is fine and golden. Waters are clear and at the time that I went it was 33 degrees so the waters were warm.... More

This beach is a bit of a hidden treasure. The bus is a short journey from Santa Cruz, and it takes you right to the edge of the beach. We were surprised at how quiet it was, despite it being a sunny 22-degree day - the benefit of mid-winter in Tenerife! There are plenty of deck-chairs and changing sheds and... More

Most tourists stayed in the south so this beach is not too crowded but it's the most beautiful we have been to. We were there when a plane came down but no one injured and amazed at the speed emergency services has turned up.

What a lovely sandy beach and easily accessible from Santa Cruz. Loungers can be rented for €2.50 per day and there is shade there under the trees. Water is cold in January and only for the brave. Great food and drink service from the huts on the beach. Great beach to visit if you are in Tenerife

We visited the beach during a sunny day, not very windy. We took the bus from Santa Cruz - about 20-30 minutes drive and the bus left us right next to the beach. Nice, long and wide beach, golden sand and palm trees. You can rent chairs or stay on your own towel/ blanket, etc. There are bars where you... More

Clean, well organised, shallow water leading to deeper water, protected by break water. Good for families and good for a little snorkelling.

Lovely man made beach next to quaint little unspoilt town of San Andres. Cups of tea and coffee from the little kiosks and thankfully no concrete or other hotels.

The beach is located north of Santa Cruz, it has a large car park and can be accessed by bus from the city. Its an artificial beach but compared to those in the south, is a lot quieter and populated by locals as much as it is by tourists, There's a large break water running the length of the beach...
