A nudist beach and a paradise in Tenerife
Los Patos beach is legendary amongst nudists in the Canary Islands. Located in the spectacular La Orotava valley, with Teide in the background, the volcanic sand of this virgin beach widens over the summer and at low tide leaving one of the largest expanses of beach in northern Tenerife; similar to Fuerteventura's vast beaches. If, on top of that, the normal waves relax a little, bathing in these clean, cool waters in complete harmony with nature is just priceless. A veritable paradise.
The beach with the most volcanic sand in the Canary Islands
This beach is located in El Rincón, a protected area of two million square metres with banana plantations and another three top-quality beaches. Although difficult to access, reaching its warm sands and enjoying the silence; the solitude, the majestic cliffs and the views over the resort town of Puerto de la Cruz is well worth the effort. After the tide has gone out, take a long walk across the plains of sand or splash through the tidal pools. Well worth the trip.
