Playa Jardin Beach – Puerto de la Cruz

As someone who has been fortunate enough to visit the beautiful island of Tenerife, I can confidently say that one of the highlights of my trip was spending a day at Playa Jardin Beach in Puerto de la Cruz. This stunning black sand beach offers the perfect combination of sun, sea, and relaxation, making it the ideal spot for a day of unwinding and enjoying the beauty of nature.

One of the best things about Playa Jardin Beach is that it’s open all day, so you can start your day as early as you want. I recommend getting there as early as possible (from experience around 8.00am) to catch the sunrise and avoid the crowds. It’s a magical experience to witness the sun rising over the Atlantic Ocean, and you’ll have the beach almost entirely to yourself.

Pack The Essentials

Before heading to the beach, make sure to pack all the essentials you’ll need for a day in the sun. If like me you always forget something I find making a list always helps, the list includes sunscreen, a hat, a beach towel, sunglasses, and a good book to read. There are also a few local convenience stores nearby in Playa Jardin Tenerife that sell snacks and drinks if you forget to bring any. Our popular blog post on Beach Essentials may also help.

Explore The Beach

Once you’ve found your spot on the beach, take some time to explore. Playa Jardin Beach is divided into three areas: Playa Jardin, Playa del Castillo (my favourite), and Playa de Punta Brava. Each section offers a unique experience, from the volcanic black sand of Playa Jardin to the rocky coastline of Playa del Castillo. I recommend spending some time in each area so you can appreciate the different landscapes.

Indulge in Local Cuisine

After working up an appetite from swimming and lounging on the beach, head to one of the many restaurants nearby and try some local cuisine. Puerto de la Cruz is known for its delicious seafood and traditional Canarian dishes, so be sure to try some of the local specialties. Be sure to check out my favourite restaurant in Playa Jardin Tenerife Quiosco.
