Undeniably, beaches yield the main attractions in Tenerife. Hundreds of kilometers of sand border the island, offering unmatchable tourist opportunities. Sunbathing is the least one can think of in Tenerife, since plenty of beaches are well endowed for indulging in water sports activities (windsurfing, surfing, diving). El Medano, El Bollullo and Martianez should be mentioned in this respect.

In addition, the beaches in Tenerife are as varied as to suit all tastes. Thus, both nudists and families, for instance are able to find the best sunbathing venue they can think of. Most beaches are fitted with a series of facilities ranging from sun beds to refreshments stalls, not to mention the stretches of sand located in close proximity to the major resorts benefit from being bordered by sundry restaurants and bars. The surroundings of such beaches are also replete with accommodation solutions. Given the south resorts of Tenerife seem to be the most popular with tourists, one can easily imagine the beaches stretching along such resorts share the same popularity. In addition, some of the beaches in Tenerife are often awarded the blue flag, which is indicative of the quality of environmental protection.

The following is but a list of the most notable and recommendable beaches in Tenerife.
