The dark, soft sand of Playa El Bollullo is a product of volcanic activity millions of years ago. You'll see evidence of this in the tall, jagged cliffs and rocks along the borders of the beach. The only facilities are a small cafe serving tapas and bocadillos, or sandwiches, so this strip of sand stays relatively quiet even during peak tourist season. A 30-minute walk from Puerto de la Cruz will get you the water's edge. Be careful of strong currents and waves when swimming.

Playa El Bollullo reviews
Nice beach in North Tenerife, a little bit hard to reach, especially if a truck goes in the opposite direction than you in the 2.5 m wide road.
Very nice beach with a strand-bar. The way down can be a bit tricky but doable.
