Playa de los Guios (Gigantes Beach)

Playa de los Guios is a black lava sand beach surrounding by the modern concrete seawall of the port to its south and high rugged cliffs to the north. It is also known as Playa Los Gigantes – the name given to these cliffs.

At around 100 metres in total, it is not the largest of beaches in Tenerife. However, calm waters and the presence of lifeguards do make it a good option for those wanting to swim. Immediately north of the port on the island’s west coast, Playa de los Guios has sun loungers for rent as well as changing rooms, toilets and showers. 

Boat and whale watching trips, jet ski rental and sea kayaks can all be arranged from the port. It’s here that you’ll also find options for places to eat and drink.
