You have your pick of great beaches on Tenerife. Some of our favorites include:

Alcala

We love the black lava beaches just northwest of Alcala, which are only a 20 minute drive from Casa Felix. The water is fresh and can be wavy here, but there are protected pools which offer a refreshing spot for cooling off from the sun. You can rent chairs and umbrellas here from the hotel. There’s a great path for walking or jogging which takes you past one of the hottest surfing spots on the island (Punta Blanca) and all the way to Playa de la Arena.

El Médano

El Médano is unsurpassed for windsurfing, kite-surfing and other awe inspiring feats on the water. There are plenty of restaurants and shops here, and you can rent chairs and umbrellas as well as gear for water sports. This beach is a 46 Km (36 min) minute drive from Casa Felix.

Las Vistas

If you like your beaches with long expanses of blonde sand and guaranteed safe swimming, check out Las Vistas. It’s in the Los Cristianos area, so be warned: it will be crowded. There are plenty of restaurants and shops here, and you can rent chairs and umbrellas. This beach is a 19km (24 min) drive from Casa Felix.
