Punta Brava Beach

Punta Brava Beach

Punta Brava beach is in the municipality of Puerto de la Cruz, located within the Playa Jardín complex. Also known as Playa Grande, it is a wonderful beach of black volcanic sand. Next to a coastal neighbourhood surrounded by solidified basaltic lava from past eruptions. It is an area with moderate waves and with the tides there is little change in the space of sand where you can lay your towel.

The beach is about 260 metres long, the approximate width of the beach is 40 metres and the degree of occupation of the beach is usually high. Nudism is not usually practised. It has a promenade where you can go for a stroll or do some sport. There are also sun loungers and parasols for hire.

Access to the beach is via a series of paths decorated with species typical of Tenerife. This marvel is the work of the Canarian sculptor César Manrique where it is possible to find flowers typical of the island, stone caves and small waterfalls.

There is also a large play area for those with children. Access for the disabled. You can visit the famous Loro Parque during the day, as it is next door.

There is a beach bar next to the beach, but a visit to the fishing village and a meal in one of the restaurants is highly recommended. It is a pleasure to have a ration of sardines on the terrace next to the sea.

The truth is that its characteristics make it a different beach among those that exist in Tenerife.
