Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was the closest "beach" to our Occidental hotel, so we were here twice to lay on the beach and do a swim. This is no touristic attraction while there is not really much sand or place to lay. What makes it nice for couples and people who just want to lay next to the water. We didn't care about the lava rocks and area.

Fantastic beach just out the gate of the active hotel.
Some small spots of sand to lay on or plenty of flat rocks take a couple of towels or a mat.
The beach is small and hardly ever busy.
You can either walk down the rocks or use the subway to gain access to the beach.
Was the best location we found for snorkelling 🤿 lots of different fish crabs etc.
shower available on the beach.
No toilets or shops near bymake sure you take water etc…

Would recommend to go while high tide. But anyway it's a nice beach. Many locals there. No sunloungers!

We stayed at the occidental playa just behind so it was easy to access the beach. Although it is a bit rocky there are sandy areas! We snorkelled here for hours, so many little fish and such clear water. Would definitely recommend!

Love this little beach, it's about a 40 minute walk from Costa Teguise, is very small, with no amenities. Not much room to sit when the tide is in. Great for snorkelling though.

and quiet due to its location. The colours of the waters are too beautiful to be described. Deep blue and turquoise green.

They can't call a few rocks and a few grains of sand a beach, very dangerous. It wasn't worth the risk of breaking a bone.

Nice stretch of coast - lovely views of the coast and out to sea - nice to walk the coastal path and take in all the beaches along this stretch - this one is rocky so not for everyone

Very small and very rocky beach. Lots of slippery rocks-very uncomfortable. Great view but not for sunbathing.
