Black and Gold: Beaches of Tenerife

Lie back and bathe in the sunshine on a beautiful Tenerife beach – one of the best reasons to visit this island. Even if you’re interested in staying in one of the all-inclusive resorts (have a look at Playa de las Américas, Los Cristianos or Costa Adeje) there’s still plenty of opportunity to discover what lies beyond the resort walls; particularly as Tenerife’s resorts tend to be situated right on the edges of the beaches.

If spotless beaches, cocktails at your elbow and loungers-for-hire aren’t really your idea of an island adventure, there are plenty of secluded coves, rock formations and hidden peninsulas waiting to be explored on Tenerife’s coastline (the longest coastline in the Canaries!).

Tourists can enjoy a full spectrum of black, golden, fine, coarse, secluded, sociable, family friendly – and even nudist – beaches where the outdoorsy can enjoy a great range of water sports. Choose from surfing, diving, snorkelling, kite boarding, wind surfing and jet skiing to ride the waves or get a glimpse of the reefs beneath them.

Beaches on the southern coast have fine sand with a light tone (popular favourites are Playa de las Teresitas, Playa de la Arena and Playa del Duque), which are perfect for beach sports like volleyball, tennis and football.

Whatever type of holiday floats your boat-from adventurous coastal walks to luxurious wine tasting at local vineyards - fill in your dates and click "find my holiday" to see what's available at the moment. Adjust the settings to suit your taste and budget and search for your holiday in Tenerife 2013.
