During these days nothing seems more appealing than a good dip. But, where can we go? Tenerife, which has almost 70 km of beaches, most of them Blue Flag awarded due to the quality of their water, provided services and accessibility, is the ideal place. So, our only concern will be to decide which one.
In the South beaches usually have golden sands, while those in the North are almost black.
Here you can see a list of the beaches that have been awarded with the Blue Flag:
Golden sands: Playa de Fañabé and Playa del Duque , (in Adeje); El Médano and La Jaquita (in Granadilla de Abona).
Black sands: Troya I and II (in Arona); Playa San Juan (in Guía de Isora); La Arena (in Santiago del Teide); El Socorro (in Los Realejos); Playa Jardín and San Telmo (in Puerto de la Cruz); Arenisco (in San Cristóbal de La Laguna); La Arena (in Tacoronte).
However, we can always opt for wonderful natural pools. The most popular ones are in Bajamar and Punta del Hidalgo (in La Laguna); San Juan de la Rambla (Charco de la Laja); Garachico (El Caletón) and San Miguel.
Besides, every single place offers lots of fun activities: windsurfing, kitesurfing, kayaking, etc.
No matter what you choose, sand or natural pool, any option is great for relaxing and enjoying our fantastic coast.
But remember, it is important to measure out your sun exposure. Use sunscreen, drink plenty of fluids and, of course, look after our shores and keep them clean.
Tell us which one you finally chose!
