If you are in Candelaria, then seeing this Plaza is a must-do. The statues of the nine Guanche kings are very well done indeed and it is very pleasant to walk along the shoreline to the caves behind the Basilica. Beware the waves!

We have been there last summer, traveling trough Tenerife. The place is worth to see, sourrounded with small shops and restaurants on one side and Chatedral on other. Actually we were there to see chatedral which is really master piece
