Playa de la Arena For Exploring Outside Of Crystal Aparthotel

Playa de la Arena

Playa de la Arena is located in one of the most shelter spots on the island making it a wonderful place to stretch out your towel on a hot summer’s day. The beach’s blue flag status requires it to have bathrooms, showers, food kiosks and public transport pick up points. Thanks to its comfortable amenities it is a firm favourite amongst tourists and locals alike. But, it is worth noting that this beach doesn’t have any wave breakers which means when the wind does pick up you can expect the sea to get choppy.
Playa Chica For Exploring Outside Of Crystal Hotel

Playa Chica

Don’t let the lack of luxury fool you when arriving at this tiny stretch of sand. The volcanic sand soaks up the warm Canarian rays creating a warm place to sunbathe whatever hour of the day you arrive. The beach is nestled in between the cliffs of Puerto Santiago protecting it from gusts of wind and maintaining the warm temperatures of the sand. Families with small children will love the gentle waves and little ones will enjoy paddling or swimming in the tranquil waters close to shore. For the daredevils of the family, there is a metal ladder built into the cliffs which can be used for diving off the tall cliffs into the refreshingly blue Atlantic Ocean. If you are looking for an authentic beach experience in Tenerife, this is it.

Playa Alcalá

Grab your towel and head to this small but perfectly formed stretch of sand. Alcalá beach may only measure 30 meters in size but it is has everything you need to enjoy a perfect day by the sea. The sunbaked volcanic sand, gentle waters and premium beach facilities have earnt this beach the reputation of being one of the best on the island. It is also a well known destination for snorkelling and depending on the time of the year, it is possible to catch a glimpse of sea turtles swimming close to shore.

Playa San Juan

For a real local experience head straight to Playa San Juan, just a quarter of an hours drive away from Crystal. The long stretch of dark volcanic sand quickly fills up in summer months as tourists and locals alike flock to take a dip in the refreshing Atlantic Ocean. It is the antithesis of the built up beach resorts of the south. Instead, Playa San Juan offers a taste of old world Tenerife charm since little has changed here in the last 50 years. What once was a quiet fishing village is now a buzzing town and the arrival of bars and restaurants has made the beach in Playa San Juan a foodie hangout. Hire a lounger for the day and lay back while enjoying views of the sea. Or, find a spot in one of the bars along the promenade and cool off with spectacular views.
