Playa de Abama

Playa de Abama - Spain
© Falco Ermert

The point at which the Barranco de Chabugo ravine meets the Atlantic Ocean, Playa de Abama sits on Tenerife’s west coast. Reached via a turning off the TF-47, and the nearest bus stops, it is easily reached by road from Abama golf club and surrounding areas.

Although backed by a luxury hotel, the golden sands of Playa de Abama are public, slipping softly into bright blue shallows partially protected by rocks a short distance off shore. It is approximately 20 minutes on foot to the beach from the nearest parking areas, a route which involves a winding stone staircase.

Sun loungers can be used, for a small fee, even if you’re not staying at the hotel, clustering towards the widest point of Playa de Abama’s 100 metre length. There are also lifeguards on duty for those looking to swim in safety. The benefit of the hotel’s presence is a more exclusive feel than that on nearby beaches, although it does dominate the market for the nearest food and drink options. 

Hang around until dusk, and you’ll also get the chance to see some of the finest sunsets on the island.
