Playa del Fraile - A fascinating stone and rock bay with rough waves
Those prepared to take the one-hour drive from Puerto de la Cruz to get to the western tip of Tenerife will find that Playa del Fraile is a true insider tip for all nature lovers. The impressive cliffs in the background and the rough sea make this natural, untouched stony beach a real natural spectacle. Enormous waves roll in every second unstoppably towards the land, leaving you watch these powerful forces of nature in awe and because of these waves it is definitely advisable not to swim here. However, if you are determined to go into the water here, then it is better instead to go across the car park and follow the stone paths along the cliffs, where you will find natural pools hidden between the rocks. Here you can treat yourself to a swim safely protected from the waves.
