Your guide to Playa De La Arena holidays
The black sand beach at Playa de la Arena is its main draw for visitors. Flanked by low key restaurants and bars, this beach still does get busy in the summer months but is world’s away from Tenerife’s much larger resorts. In neighbouring Los Gigantes, you can explore the ‘Giant Cliffs’ with a walk, or you could head into the Teide National Park for a gorgeous and fragrant wander through protected woodland.
The black sand beach in Playa de la Arena reminds you that the Canary Islands are naturally volcanic. Although some resorts in Tenerife have manmade sands to make them more aesthetically pleasing for tourists who’ve come to associate pristine white sands and blue seas with a holiday, the natural beauty of the black sand is a wonder in its own right. Flanked with plenty of facilities and options for water sports, the Playa de la Arena is family-friendly. Remember to always check local advice before going swimming. It can be, at first, not obvious if there’s a powerful undercurrent.
