Tenerife Beaches Los Realejos - only two

tenerife beaches los realejos

The Los Realejos coastline features two beaches, one major, one minor.

Playa Socorro

This is the first one we arrive at travelling clockwise round the island and it is one of Tenerife's major beaches.

It is a long stretch of grey sand (with a few rocks) and gets very popular in the summer.

The Atlantic waves crash in here with a vengeance and the beach is therefore a main surfing centre. The water is safe to enter for a swim, though, as the sea bed only slopes gently away from the shore and there are emergency services on duty should anybody get into trouble.

The beach doesn't appear to have any sunloungers on it, so you've got to lie on the sand. On the plus side, there is wheelchair access and a rather good beach bar.

Playa de Castro

Just the other side of a rocky headline from Socorro is this small beach.

It is in a completely unspoilt, isolated spot and is merely a 200 yard stretch of grey sand.

It has no facilities to speak of, but nice calm waters for swimming. Such is its isolation that you can only approach it so far in a vehicle, then have to park up and proceed along a footpath through dense vegetation.

It's likely that you'll almost have the place to yourself - everyone will be at Playa Socorro, next door.
