A volcanic sand beach located in Tenerife North
El Socorro beach, in the Los Realejos district, is particularly well known by surfers as they often practise here or use the beach for competitions. There is quite a strong swell, which means you need to take care when swimming. El Socorro beach is a long, beautiful beach of volcanic sand with a range of facilities including car parks, bars, restaurants and sometimes, lifeguards. To get there drive along the C-280 main road north and then take the signposted exit near the "mirador de San Pedro" (viewpoint) which will lead you down to this beach. Blue Flag.
