Playa de Benijo

Forming a part of Parque Rural de Anaga, Playa de Benijo lies on Tenerife’s northern coast close to the island’s easternmost point. It runs without break into the neighbouring beach of Playa de Fabin although its widest point sits at the base of the curve of the bay.

Because of its location within the reserve, Playa de Benijo is one for lovers of nature and narrow mountain roads. Views include those of the Roques de Anaga formations, although to absorb them you’ll need to tackle a short, stepped path.

Playa de Benijo has a length of around 300 metres, and width of 30 metres. Consisting of volcanic black sand, as a semi-official nudist beach you shouldn’t be surprised if you encounter other beachgoers wearing little more than smiles.

Waves here are often strong, meaning it’s rare to see anyone swimming. Instead, surfers and other water sports enthusiasts take advantage of the wind and waves to challenge their skill on their boards.

Almost entirely free of facilities, you’ll need to bring all you want with you for the day.
