Wild beach

Unlike the urban beaches, at Bollullo beach you will feel like you are escaping from the city and entering a paradise that you will not want to leave. It is ideal for those looking to escape from the noise of the city and the stress of the modern world.

It presents itself as a wild beach that has remained untouched by the passage of time, and next to it is a beautiful cove that is just as enchanting.

The wind from the north of the island hits the waters creating some waves that are not dangerous for swimming. This makes it one of the favourite beaches for surfers in Tenerife.

Children are also welcome, they enjoy playing on the shore and walking along the sand, so the whole family can go there with complete peace of mind.
