One Tenerife’s few natural beaches, Playa La Arena makes up in cleanliness and beauty what it lacks in size. This small stretch of sand consistently wins European Blue Flag recognition for excellence. The black sand can get quite hot during summer, so make use of the lounge chairs and umbrellas for rent. When you want a break from the hard work of relaxing by the water, take a stroll to Los Gigantes, a set of cliffs overlooking the water. From here, you'll have commanding views of waves crashing into the rugged coastline. Cafes and restaurants line the beach. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Puerto de Santiago holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Playa La Arena and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

Close to the mountainous Los Gigantes, the west coast resort in Tenerife benefits from Playa de la Arena and it’s palm-tree lined, black sandy beach. Appears quite touristy but is very pretty to look.... more »

Great beach! The sand is beautiful yet extremely hot and the sea is cool. There is a life guard and you can rent a bad for 3 euros and an umbrella for 3 euros
Beautiful and clean beach, nice location, wide enough, with fantastic Black sand! Love it!
