Summary of the Beach Inspectors
The breath-taking scenery at Playa de Diego Hernandez is like a dream. The golden sand, the light coloured rocks and the turquoise water are all equally stunning. The beach is characterised  by the hippies who live here and the straw huts which they have built. The atmosphere is very relaxed and everyone is welcome here, including pets. Swimming is mainly without clothes and camping is also possible here, even if you haven't decided on a permanent dropout existence!

Playa de Diego Hernandez - Relaxing bay with a stunning view

Playa de Diego Hernandez is a very beautiful and remotely situated sandy beach in the south-west of Tenerife. From the village of La Caleta it is a walk of about one and a half kilometres along a narrow path over a hill. When you see the beach you will definitely know why the long walk was well worth it. The turquoise, crystal clear water and the light coloured sandy beach surrounded be nicely shaped rocks are priceless for all admirers of beaches and nature.

The only buildings near the beach are some huts where hippies and dropouts have settled. They are also to be seen in small caves and the rock cliffs, from where you have a great view of the beach and sea.

The beach scenery is characterised by the hippies. The atmosphere towards holidaymakers is very relaxed and welcoming, which make this beach worth a visit for a few hours. Especially nudists will find it very relaxed at Playa de Diego Hernandez. The rocks provide shade and access into the water is shallow and the waves are mostly small. The beach is therefore suitable for families, as long as they are prepared to walk there and can put up with not having any toilets.

You have to do without any infrastructure and amenities here and also bring your own food and drink. At the weekends and in the holiday season locals also come here for camping. In the evenings, when the sun sets near the neighbouring island of Gomera, there are regularly drum-sessions where everyone is welcome to participate.

does not recommend this beach The beach is beautiful however too many dogs belonging to both hippies and locals, dog dirt left on the beach, noisy weed smoking hippies congregating in large groups as if they owned the beach, litter thrown anywhere- -also spotted one guy doing some graffiti on the beautiful rock edges. The local council really should patrol this area of natural beauty -

Every beach is unique. Apart from how the beach looks and its surroundings it is mainly the people and the amenities here which give the beach its character.
Relaxation: 4/10 points
Place 35 of 51
This beach is not great for relaxation, but you will find the odd suitable space to settle down here.
Family: 3/10 points
Place 39 of 51
Unfortunately this beach has not much to offer for families to spend an enjoyable day here.
Water sports: 1/10 points
Place 36 of 51
No wind and no waves here mean that this is definitely the wrong place for water-sports enthusiasts.
Party: 4/10 points
Place 3 of 51
Only moderate party action here, as not many come to this beach to party.
