Playa San Juan - Lovely harbour beach with good swimming conditions
The lovely beach of Playa de San Juan, also simply known as Playa San Juan, is situated in the village of San Juan on the west coast of Tenerife. Palm trees and the black sand which is typical for Tenerife create a beautiful landscape. The beach stretches for about 350 metres and is located next to a small harbour. It is sheltered by a large wall and the moderate waves provide good swimming conditions. A nicely landscaped promenade, which is also accessible to all including wheelchair users, runs around the beach. Playa San Juan has quite deservedly been awarded the Blue Flag for an especially safe, clean and tourist friendly beach.
There are also toilets and two lifeguard towers at Playa de San Juan, as well as an inviting beach bar. Furthermore shops, additional restaurants, a playground and a diving school can be found here. In spite of its central location near to some of the more popular tourist resorts of the island, San Juan has kept some of its original charm, which means it is still a nice little fishing village where you can spend a relaxed day.
