2. Lying in the sun on the beachLos Cristianos beach - lorenzobovi
Of course, go to the island of Tenerife is synonymous with beaches, transparent sea and much tan! Las Teresitas beach is one of the most popular and is located in Santa Cruz de Tenerife. An extremely curious fact, until 1973 it had black sand but it was rebuilt with imported sand ... from the Sahara!
It is a very nice place to go with family. The kids will have a great time because it has a breakwater dike more than fun.
The other three recommended beaches in Tenerife are Bollullo, Ancon and Los Patos. These have "original" black sand and are really beautiful. The first is the only one that has a bar, in case you want to buy something to eat. For the others ... fill your bag well!
