Benijo Beach: A Natural Paradise in Tenerife
Benijo Beach is a wild gem on the coast of the hamlet of the same name, north of the Anaga district, near Taganana, belonging to the municipality of Santa Cruz de Tenerife. This beach, unique in its kind, is a true volcanic treasure, with its black sand and the embrace of majestic mountains bathed by the ocean. The sunsets here are an explosion of colors that will transport you to a fantasy world.
A Different Beach in Tenerife
Benijo Beach is not like the typical tourist beaches in Tenerife, far from crowds and umbrellas. Here, you won’t find boardwalks or tourist attractions, only challenging stairs leading to an almost deserted paradise. Its inaccessibility has preserved its unique beauty and peaceful atmosphere. Additionally, surrounded by the imposing Roques de Anaga, it offers a spectacular landscape that will leave you breathless.
Rural Park of Anaga: Nature in its Splendor
The Rural Park of Anaga is one of the island’s treasures, declared a Biosphere Reserve. Its rugged mountain range contrasts with deep valleys and ravines that flow into the sea, creating the majestic Benijo Beach. With a length of 300 meters, it is a perfect place to enjoy nature in its purest form, with magical sunsets and a dreamlike landscape.
Benijo Beach has an average occupancy in high season and lacks lifeguards, so you should be cautious when swimming due to currents. Additionally, there are no services such as bathrooms, sun loungers, or umbrellas, but that is part of its wild charm. Near the beach, you can visit the El Frontón Restaurant, where you can enjoy delicious Canarian dishes, with fresh fish and fried octopus as specialties.
Almáciga and Taganana are the nearest localities, where you will find ATMs and supermarkets. There is public transportation, line 946, connecting the capital with these localities. On weekdays, the bus runs every hour, while on holidays, it runs every 2 and a half hours. Discover the magic of Tenerife live through our webcam at Benijo Beach.
