    Love it here
    Recently been to Tenerife for Christmas/New Year. We go to this beach every other day. Worth the 2 buses to get there. Two sunbeds and a parasol for €6 is excellent. On Christmas Day we had one of the double beds for €10. The beach bars are excellent and reasonably priced. We had sangria on our sunbeds every day which was very enjoyable. The toilet facilities are not very good however and lets the place down. The sea was lovely and crystal clear. Can’t wait to visit again when we return in 7 weeks.

    Lovely beach perfect for families
    We visited here as our friend was desperate to swim in the sea , but during the rest of the week the wind had been strong and many of the natural pools were closed and the beaches had red flag warnings. This is a man made beach with lovely white sand , and as it has a breakwater the sea is protected and very calm. The sand goes a long way into the water and you have to walk a fair way to get into the sea , but made it perfect for kids so their were many families there. The facilities are great : a large car park a short walk away, toilets, showers , sunloungers and sun beds all along the beach and a wide selection of cabins offering a large choice of drinks and snacks. Lovely views from the beach inland towards the hills. As it was Feb the water was a bit cold but one of our party did brave a swim

    Great beach
    The rating of 5/5 is justified totally. Dont let the reviews about the ships change Your mind about coming here, its definitely worth it. Theres plenty of parking space, the beach is long, theres no overcrowding. It has toillets and changing rooms (that aspect could benefit from some renovation/cleaninf). Along the beach You have beach bars, coffee is 2€ for example, dirt cheap if You ask me as are the beachchairs, 6€ for 2 including a parasol. If You are close, give Playa des Las Teresitas a try!

    Sandy beach
    A great sandy beach inside an enclosed outer wall, providing safety and less impact from the Atlantic waves. Beach is sandy and has a number of toilets and small cafes. Two sun beds and a parasol were available at an all in price of 6 Euros. Ideal place to soak up some sun.

    Best beach in North Tenerife
    Loads of beach like food and drink places. Again extremely Spanish, and it makes sense. Is refreshing to be fair. Lovely same, sea was still cold-ish in June but the weather lovely. If in the north of the island this is without doubt the best beach to go to. Has all facilities too If running the beach, it’s 2.3k round trip

P&O Cruise ship docked at Santa Cruz Port this morning so we decided to take a trip to the beach for a few hours. The 910 bus takes you right opposite the beach €5 for 2 adults & 2 children & takes about 20 mins. Beautiful golden sandy beach with lots of sun beds & umbrellas €5 per item. Sea is always calm as there are breakers off shore so perfect for kids & swimming. Beach bars all along the beach serving food too. Quite busy but plenty of room & never felt cramped. Would recommend this beach to anyone with children especially if your ship has docked for the day & want to have a day out.

Don't get me wrong, it's still a nice beach and tourists based in Santa Cruz seem to prefer it. The yellow sand (imported from the Sahara Desert) everybody seems to enjoy, I consider to be a disadvantage - it's to too "powder like" for my personal taste. With every blow of the wind you get sand in your ears, nose, mouth (a problem which is virtually absent with the more granular volcanic sand). Another thing I don't like is that the waves are really small. On the plus side - there's abundance of parking space. Showers, toilets, changing rooms and lockers are at visitors' disposal. There's also a bus connection with Santa Cruz although for some reason TITSA (the company that operates all bus lines across Tenerife) put the oldest and most rickety buses on this particular line (the bus number is 910 by the way).

Loved this beach. Got the number 910 bus from straight outside the cruise port terminal in Santa crutZ. Busses every 10 to 15 mins and around 1.5 euros each way. One of the nicest sandy beaches in the island with the backdrop of mountains. Water very calm and sheltered from big waves by a man made reef barrier. All golden sand. Swim out a bit with the snorkel and you come to some deeper water with rocks at the bottom where you can see some fish. Saw a big flat fish of some sort. There is a small bar on the beach, changing rooms and toilets. A short walk to a nearby village one end of the beach by the boats and there are some little places to eat and drink there which looked quite nice.

We spent the day here, the sea is beautifully clean and clear. We rented a sun lounger which also entitled us to food and drink- well worth the price. Easy and ample car parking.

Wednesday 8th December and we visited this beach which located north of the village of San Andrés. It is regarded the Beach of Santa Cruz.

It is an artificial beach measuring 1,300 metres (4,300 feet) in length and 80 metres (260 feet) in width.

We learnt that in 1973 the existing beach was expanded with the help of 270,000 tonnes of white sand from the Western Sahara Desert. The original sand was replenished in 1998, another 2,800 tonnes of Saharan sand.

A breakwater, a kilometre long and constructed with rocks protects the beach and it's sand and provides a safe area for swimming.

There are a variety of sunbeds, loungers, cabanas and umbrellas for hire. There are a number of restaurants and bar huts along the beach. It was definitely created with tourism in mind. It even has it's own Civil Guard office. There is some wonderful mountainous scenery.

There is a vast car park along the back of the beach. When we visited here it was not very busy so car parking was not a problem, can imagine that it is a different story during busier times. It was worth a visit but would not want to spend too long here.

Don't believe all the stuff you read about this beach. We visited in December after seeing some beautiful pictures of it. On reflection we should have asked the lady we hired the car from as she told us when we returned that it was not like the photos you see of it and that it was only used by locals from the city. The place was run down and the beach was untidy and dotted with cheap plastic kitchen bins for the rubbish. The view you get from the beach is one of huge container ships at anchor waiting to get into the port of Santa Cruz. The photos don't show you this. There was no way you would enjoy sitting on this beach with a view of all these container ships so close to the shore. No sign of all the advertised cafes and eating places that are supposed to line the beach front. We didn't stay as it felt very down at heel. Even the car park was a mess with pot holes which was hard to avoid.

The beaches of Tenerife are black sand except here. The white sand was imported from the Sahara. There are plenty of loungers and umbrellas available for rent along with washroom (at a cost) and shower facilities. There is an old cemetery next to the parking lot.

Great beach facilities as in parking, sunbeds with umbrella, bars, toilets, showers and all for reasonable prices. Parking for free.
Seems like a very touristical place, as you see a cruise ship in front of the beach and some places are reserved at the beach for cruise people.
Ocean is quiet, sand is brown. Beach is not special, but the area is with the mountains around.

Really good sandy beach with sandy seafloor and clear water (I wasn't sure about the oit tankers in the background, though...). The beach itself is nice and wide, the changing cabins are clean. I don't know whether we happened to be there on a less windy day, but if felt really safe, as the swimming part is hidden from the big waves. The parking is quite big but can still get very busy in the afternoon and it's almost impossible to get a free parking slot on January 1st, so don't plan going there after the New Year's eve.
