 Additional Information

This beach, which name means 'The Seagulls', is formed by volcanic black sand. If you arrive during high tide, the beach can be only a stripe of pebbles and stones, but it will 'reappear' later. The beach is open to the waves, therefore it is a favorite place for surfers who like to ride the waves at the feet of the impressive cliffs.

if you are looking for a place to saty Here - Hi. I am a surfer from here. If you want to spend some days in Tenerife and do not know were to stay I rent a flat in the North of this Island, located in a nice place, near “El Socorro” surf Beach. It has only 1 room and it is for 1 or 2 persons max.... If you want more information contact me jorgesarrautte@yahoo.es If you need information about the waves from Tenerife, how to go to the spots or something like this, contact me and I will answer for sure. Ich sprehe Deutsch auch.
