Canary Islands Sights

Playa de las Teresitas

  • Beach–Sight

Updated 09/26/2014

Fodor's Review

Santa Cruz's beach, Las Teresitas, is about 7 km (4½ miles) northeast of the city, near the town of San Andrés. The 1.5 km (1 mile) of beach was created using white sand imported from the Sahara and planted with palms. A manmade barrier runs parallel to the sands and ensures safe bathing. Busy in the summer and on weekends, this beach is especially popular with local families. The 910 TITSA bus route connects the beach with Santa Cruz. There's a good choice of bars and restaurants, and plenty of lounge chairs for rent. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; showers; toilets. Good for: sunset; swimming; walking.
