Tenerife has several ideal places for windsurfing. The beach of El Cabezo, where the PWA World Cup Tenerife was held, is one of the most popular places to practise this sport on the island, but also one of the most demanding in terms of technical level. Luckily, there are several windsurfing centres where you can not only rent equipment, but also receive training classes to learn how to master the board.

What are you waiting for? In Tenerife you have a sports universe at your fingertips.

The beaches of Tenerife are undoubtedly a must for 2019. Whether you are looking for water sports, places to relax and unwind or you prefer lively beaches where you can have fun… In Tenerife you will find exactly what you are looking for.

Beaches for sports enthusiasts

We recently released Tenerife’s “Sports Calendar” for 2019, with many events for every taste and discipline, some even on beaches like El Medano or Las Americas!

El Médano, the favourite beach for windsurfing

Playa De Tenerife El Medano

On this famous beach in the municipality of Granadilla de Abona, the World PWA Windsurfing Championship will be held. Last year participated more than 70 professionals. If you love windsurfing then El Médano is your place to go. It is one of the most colourful and peculiar landscapes in the south of Tenerife.

Beach Playa de Las AméricasPlaya De Tenerife Las Americas

Perhaps the best known place for water sports lovers is the “Izquierda de la Palmera”. It’s one of the island’s famous waves, therefore the Las Americas Pro attracts professional surfers from around the world to attend the WSL World Surf League event in February. Some interesting beaches you can find in this area are El Camisón beach and Las Vistas beach.

Family beaches

For a child there is nothing better than spending a great day on the beach. Building sand castles, playing ball games or just swimming in the sea turn a simple day in the sun into an oasis of fun. In Tenerife, there is a big variety of family beaches.

Beach Playa de La Pinta

Playa De Tenerife La Pinta

With a calm swell thanks to its breakwater and a wide range of activities (inflatable trampoline castles in the water, jet skiing, diving …), La Pinta beach is one of the most popular beaches to enjoy with the family in the south of Tenerife. A great option if you are in Costa Adeje!

Beach Playa de Las Teresitas

Playa De Tenerife Las Teresitas

One of the favourite beaches for locals and tourists alike is undoubtedly the beach Las Teresitas. There is hardly any waves on the main beach and its size invites to enjoy long walks with the family. You can even rent a boat and enjoy the beach from the water.

Beaches for hiking

If you would like to explore the natural trails of Tenerife (or even participate in the Tenerife Walking Festival), then many hiking trails have a refreshing reward for the sweaty effort: a natural beach.

Beach Playa de Antequera

Playa De Tenerife Antequera

This beach can only be reached via a difficult path starting from the hostel Albergue de Montes de Anaga or by boat in a trip of almost an hour from Santa Cruz. Its clear and calm waters, in harmony with the imposing rock of Antequera, offering impressive views that are a real treat after the strenuous walk.

Beach Playa de Los Roques

At the end of the path of Rambla de Castro (easier than the previous one of Antequera) you reach this curious stone beach: the beach Los Roques. If you are a lover of photography, then you should not miss the sunset, very impressive!

Beaches to relax

Sometimes we just need rest and relaxation, we have to escape the hustle and bustle of the big cities and just take refuge in a natural sanctuary, only accompanied by the sound of the sea.

Beach Playa de Benijo

Playas De Tenerife Benijo

Playa Benijo is possibly the most photogenic beach in Tenerife. You have to see this fantastic colour spectacle of the sunset, how well it harmonises with the famous rocks. This sight is a true stress killer.

Beach Playa de El Bollullo

Playas De Tenerife El Bollullo

This small beach in La Orotava is located in one of the quietest corners in the north of Tenerife. Only 200 metres wide, it is a perfect retreat, where you will change the noise of the city by the sound of the sea.

And you? What kind of beach do you prefer?
