Playa la Jaquita - Relaxed, spacious, family-friendly swimming bay
Playa la Jaquita is situated in the south-east of Tenerife next to the town of El Médano. The bay consists mainly of a large sandy area which stretches far inland and on which there are many areas scattered with dark stones. Stretches of rock covered in stones protrude into the sea.
The sandy area offers plenty of space for those who like to spread out and for children to play on while their parents can keep an eye on them. There is also a cosy beach bar at the rear of the beach from where you have a good view of the entire beach.
There are also sanitary facilities and showers and you can hire loungers for a small fee. In peak season volleyball and beach football are available. Playa la Jaquita is definitely not the most beautiful beach on Tenerife but it's a good, affordable spot where you can relax all year round, away from the tourist crowds.
