Children’s beach

As we have already mentioned, it has many features that make it ideal for children.

It even has access for the baby’s pushchair.

The breakwater blocks the waves, so the swell is not strong. Likewise, the wind is very calm because it is located in the southwest of Tenerife, the least windy area of the island.

Children are happy here. They splash around in the very calm waters and the shore is shallow. They also enjoy building sand castles while their parents relax on the sand or take a bath.

Lifeguards are always on hand to attend to any incident.
