Playa Grande - A small town beach close to the airport
Playa Grande is to be found in the small town of Los Abrigos der Playa Grande in southern Tenerife. Its name, translated as “The big beach”, is however not at all appropriate, as there is just about 50 metres where you can lie here. On the other hand, here you will find quality rather than quantity, as it is really comfortable to spread out on the fine black sand. Over a hill on the right of the beach is a path which leads to a neighbouring beach, where a golf complex can be found. There is a restaurant on the opposite side of the bay where you enjoy delicious Italian meals. Playa Grande is protected from the wind by the two hills here.
Families like coming to this beach, even though the entrance into the water is really narrow and stony. Children can swim here, preferably though under supervision. Many locals also come to Playa Grande in order to get their fix of sunshine. Unfortunately the noise from the nearby airport does somewhat spoil your enjoyment here, but if you don't let it disturb you, you can enjoy this cosy town beach.
