El Ancón beach

An exotic beach ideal for walks in the north of Tenerife
In the summer months, there are few walks along the coast of northern Tenerife that are so enjoyable, with such stunning views and with such a delightful destination. It may be smaller, but El Ancón beach in La Orotava, is by no means inferior to its adjacent sister beach, Los Patos. Located in the protected area of El Rincón, the walk down to its black volcanic sand is an incredible experience, passing through banana plantations, cliffs and the vineyards of the famous Malvasia wine. The end reward is a wonderfully refreshing dip in the ocean.
A beach with wonderful views and towering cliffs in La Orotava
To get to the beach, the best thing to do is to leave the car near the last bus stop. From there, turn right and take an easy walk – there's no risk of getting yourself lost - until reaching the pristine beach about 25 minutes away. On the way you’ll pass by an attractive house with a chapel that draws plenty of attention due to its location. Another option is to take the pathway from the adjacent town of Santa Úrsula. Once on the beach enjoy the tranquillity, the warm sand and the unique views opposite the cliffs.
