El Bollullo Beach

El Bollullo Beach - Spain

El Bollullo beach is located on Tenerife’s north coast, a world away from the package-tours and resorts the island is often associated with. This small cove has a wild, natural feel right down to the black volcanic sand - there’s no sprinkling golden sand imported from the Sahara here like on some of Tenerife’s beaches.

Set in the island’s picturesque La Orotava Valley, the journey to El Bollullo involves navigating winding, narrow lanes and a walk through banana plantations. This is a fairly secluded spot, surrounded by high cliffs and whilst there isn’t much in the way of facilities there is a little beach shack on the rocks which serves seafood.

 Bathing here is at your own risk; the water is clear and clean, but the waves can be large and very powerful.
