Playa de Las Arenas

A beach walk to the Guanches of Candelaria
In the beautiful fishing village of Candelaria, to the northeast of Tenerife, there is a quiet beach. It’s 75 metres long and 20 metres wide and made with black volcanic sand and areas of gravel. If you go further along the coast, there are the beaches of La Arenita and Punta Larga. In close proximity to Candelaria—the Los Menceyes sculpture is a tribute to the Guanches, ancient inhabitants of Tenerife who are linked to the Virgin of Candelaria. It’s a great place for families to wander around.
An area with great visitor facilities
Also known as La Arena beach, this spot is easily accessible from the promenade through the breakwaters or via stairs. It has wooded areas for sunbathing, showers, and a beach kiosk. Apart from all the restaurants, ice cream parlors and shops, there are outdoor gym areas and a children’s playground. This is a place where no one gets bored.

Sustainability
Sostenibilidad
- Never leave waste of any type lying around, including cigarette butts. Leftover food leads to a proliferation of rats and wild cats.
- Do not throw any waste or other objects into the sea.
- Respect the animals. Do not bother them or feed them. If you see an injured specimen, you can call the emergency number: 112. Do not pick flowers or plants from the environment.
- Do not pick up or take away stones or any other item from the natural environment. And do not move them to pile them up into sadly famous 'towers'.
- Do not use soap or gel in the showers located at the entrance to the beach.
- Try to use ocean- friendly sun creams.
- Pets are prohibited at most beaches. Make sure you can take them beforehand.
- Try not to alter the peace of the environment with excessive noise (loud music, yelling, etc.) or activities that might be bothersome, such as ball games.
