Such an interesting, non-ordinary beach. Interesting to view and enjoy amazing beach from the mountain, as well where you can walk down to beach.

The beach was pretty and the location was a fun drive. I would suggest just that, a car! Long winding drive. Beautiful views and spectacular sunset. However the beach itself was quite small, so it’s not much of a place to play. Many surfers out,...More

It's really a magnificent place with some nice views. Beach is incredible and waves are quite big. We spent a few hours body boarding and throwing ourselves into the waves. Childhood all over again - felt like 9 years old enjoying the beach.

A very nice area along the coast. Pretty and less tourists that other areas of Tenerife. Part of the coast actually looks like it is from another world.

As soon as you park and reach the stairs leading down, your chin will fall. You can stand here for an hour and stare at the ocean. The beach gets down the stairs. Swimming is possible only at low tide. We were here after lunchtime...More

Low tide is essential, but pretty beach then if so. Nudists around! Car parking quite minimal. Lots of trails past this beach for walkers.

We went there by car, because Benijo is a quite remote village. The beach is really worth a visit and you can spend good times there. As we returned, our car got broken into through the window, although we had nothing really expensive in there,...More
