Playa de Las Teresitas, is one of Tenerife's most popular beaches. Unlike most of the others on the Island, characterized by all black volcanic sand, this beach was rejuvenated at a point with sand from the Sahara, making it all the more white than others. It’s many people’s idea of what a tropical beach should look like. A crescent shaped, lagoon-like bay with golden sand lapped by aquamarine waters teeming with tropical fish. Add palm trees and a dramatic mountain backdrop and you’ve got a perfect setting. It’s a man made beach, but it looks great.
