Playa del Camisón

Playa del Camisón - Spain
© Iain Cameron

Located within an almost entirely closed off bay created by artificial breakwaters, Playa del Camison has some of the calmest waters of any beach in southwest Tenerife. With soft sands that gently slope into warm shallow water, it is a good beach to visit with young children keen on their first beach experiences.

Although the sand itself is free of stones, large pebbles can be found under the water. However, the waters of the Atlantic are so clear at this point on the island they are easy to see and don’t pose any major risk.

Around 350 metres long and 40 metres wide, it’s just a short walk to the nearest outlets for food, while beach facilities include sun loungers, umbrellas, toilets and public showers. Pedalos and stand-up paddleboards can also be hired from businesses on the beach for an alternative way of enjoying the calm waters.

Playa del Camison gets busy during the summer months, but hardly ever becomes raucous. Instead, it has a family feel. Lifeguards are on duty during the holiday season, and the beach also has access for visitors with reduced mobility.
