Black and gold beaches, Tenerife
Tenerife’s authentic beaches, just like those in Hawaii, come in black sand form - the result of a volcanic basaltic coastline being eroded by the sea. Visit the dramatic and beautiful Playa Bollullo in La Orotava or Playa Jardín in Puerto de la Cruz. You can also choose Playa del Socorro or Playa de San Marcos. Remember that black sand absorbs the sun’s heat and retains it. In winter months that keeps the beach pleasantly warm but in summer, it can burn your feet - don't forget your flip flops!
Playa de Las Teresitas, located north of the village of San Andrés, is one of the few on Tenerife that do not have the volcanic sand. Originally the beach, bounded by the ravine of Las Teresas, consisted of mostly rocks and a small strip of black sand. In 1973, 270,000 tons of white sand was shipped from the Sahara Desert. Two piers and a kilometre long breakwater located 150 meters from the beach were constructed to prevent waves from carrying the sand out to the sea. In 1998 another 2800 tonnes sand from Sahara was added to replenish the sand lost in the beach's 25 first years of existence. Another white sand beach, Las Vistas in Los Cristianos is also artificial.
