WIFS weekly news #8: Beaches around Tenerife

As an island, Tenerife has plenty of beautiful beaches, spread all along its coastline. From north to south, from man made to natural, from touristic to remote, the range of possibilities is enough to satisfy any visitor.

Right in front of the hotel, assistants to WIFS 2012 can access to Fañabé and Playa del Duque. Both beaches are distinguished by its Blue Flag status, and stand as two of the best beaches of Tenerife’s coastline. This impressive award is only given to beaches of distinction. It acknowledges the cleanliness of the water and sand as well as the excellent facilities, which includes several access points for people with disabilities. And just a few kilometers further south, Los Cristianos and Playa de Las Américas are two of the main holiday hotspots in the island.

All along this coastline visitors will be able to enjoy a big amount of activities, apart from the usual sunbathing and swimming. Jet-skiing, wind surfing, body-boarding or snorkeling are also available, as well as whales and dolphins watching trips, or relaxing boat tours.

But it is not just in the south that fantastic beaches can be found, they are all over Tenerife. Moving a little bit northwards, El Médano is one of the most important wind surfing spots, where kite-surfing World Championship is celebrated, and La Tejita is a bohemian and quiet place, worthy to visit when wind gives a chance.

With a completely different atmosphere, and in the other opposite coastline of the island, a place called El Rincón gathers the lonely beaches of El Bollullo, Los Patos and El Ancón. These three remote beaches have a huge expanse of dark-colored sand and are sheltered by big cliffs. The access is not as easy as southern touristic ones, especially to Los Patos and El Ancón, and the sea is pretty brave so bathing should be done carefully, but the place is worth a visit indeed.
