On our island you will find a great variety of beaches… This might cause some questions. For example, what are the best family beaches in Tenerife? If, even after searching, you still couldn’t find your ideal corner, don’t worry. Today we present you more family friendly beaches! So you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Beach Playa del Bobo
Just 10 minutes walk from the bus station (estación de guaguas) you will find the beach Playa El Bobo. It is ideal for spending the whole day with your children at the beach, as there is even a small playground nearby, small supermarkets, numerous shops, bars, restaurants and cozy seating areas.
Beach Playa de La Pinta
Are you looking for a beach with calm swell and colourful sunsets? Then Playa La Pinta is your beach. There is also an incredible offer of water activities, ranging from thrilling jet ski rides, scuba diving, parascending, to ocean bouncy castles. Kids (and of course adults) love this beach!
Beach Playa de Las Galletas
As soon as you arrive at the beach Playa de Las Galletas, you can already feel the fishing atmosphere. In the harbour there are different types of boats and even fishermen occasionally fish at the jetty. If you are looking for excursions or want to try the local cuisine, then we recommend you to visit the nearby Marina del Sur. There is fresh fish and the possibility of taking a short boat ride.
Beach Playa de Arenisco
It is the reference beach if you want to experience marine customs and local fishing atmosphere. The Playa Arenisco beach is located in Punta del Hidalgo, which belongs to the municipality of San Cristobal de La Laguna. Here at this beach, families like to meet and refresh themselves in the natural lava pools.
After the obligatory dip you can take a walk around and if you stay until sunset and the day is clear, you will have one of the most beautiful views of the north coast with Mount Teide in the background.
Beach Playa de San Juan
This beach is a great family beach, which is connected to the urban centre of the same name. Thanks to the fishing port and the nearby jetty, which gives it an attractive traditional touch, the beach is sheltered from waves and wind. It is very popular with tourists and locals alike.
Beach Playa de San Marcos
The beach of Playa San Marcos in Icod de los Vinos is always guarded by the majestic silhouette of Mount Teide. The black volcanic sand is a nice contrast to the fine, golden sandy beaches of the south. In the summer months there is a nice family atmosphere here. There are also several restaurants with stunning views of the coast. Here you can spend a great day with your family and relax well.
Beach Playa del Puertito de Güímar
The last family beach we present you today is in Güímar, more precisely in the modest fishing port. This beach has a swimming area especially for dogs, perfect for romping with your best friend in the water. Along the coast you can take a long walk. It is definitely a great beach to enjoy the Atlantic Ocean, coastal walks and the local cuisine in one of the nearby restaurants.
