Santa Cruz de Tenerife


The beach was extended and improved in 1973, with golden sand brought from the former province of Spanish Sahara. It is protected by a breakwater. This extensive beach, one and a half kilometres long, has been planted with Canary Island palms, coconut palms and Canary Island bean caper.

It is near the fishing village of San Andrés, with many fish and sea-food restaurants, just seven kilometres north of Santa Cruz. It attracts fairly large numbers of people, especially in summer. It has large car parking areas, free showers, kiosks, toilets, telephone boxes, restaurant and Red Cross post. There are sun beds and rowing boats for hire.

This part of the coast has an excellent, fine sand beach, Antequera, which is north of the above mentioned beaches, by Roque de Antequera.

From Antequera, you can see El Roquete, a promontory of Igueste de San Andrés, a village that is relatively close.

The beach has no road access and it is difficult on foot. People generally go by boat from San Andrés or Santa Cruz.


Along the road, after the hamlet of Taganana, first you come to Playa del Roque de las Bodegas, with its beautifully clean waters. From here, you can see Roques de Anaga.

It is a black sand beach, suitable for surfing. Frequent currents and unexpected waves can make it dangerous, even when the sea appears calm. There are several fish restaurants and snack bars next to the beach.

Along the coast road, you get to other similar beaches, like Playa de Almáciga, just below the hamlet of Almáciga. Further on is Playa de Benijo, which is more difficult to get to.
