Description of Nude beach at Playa de La Pelada

A small bay with a 50 x20 metres black sand beach, which continues with narrow boulder covered sandy stretches going along under the foot of the rock cliffs. This continuation depends very much on the straight of the tide and weather it,s a neap or spring tide

Takes a bit of effort to get there but this is a very good nude beach.

Playa de Las Gaviotas nude beach (Santa Cruz area)

Playa de Las Gaviotas

Playa de Las Gaviotas

Location of Playa de Las Gaviotas

Playa de Las Gaviotas is located 1 kilometre, as the crow flies but 6 kilometres by road, North East of Las Teresitas beach near San Andres. Which in turn is North East of Santa Cruz.

The practical way is by car or motor bike but 2 bus services are available.

Bus Line 245: SANTA CRUZ to IGUESTE DE SAN ANDRÉS (9 buses a day) 
Bus Stop: Gaviotas 

From the stop there is about 1.5 kilometre walk down the side road to the beach


There is an bus that travels along the main TF 121 which leaves a 1.5 kilometre walk from the main road



A very frequent bus service to San Andres with a much longer walk.

If walking some corners can be cut off between the zig zags of the road. The shortcuts cross thorny land and not recommended unless a very obvious foot path trail is available.

Las Gaviotas beach is quiet small being about 200 metres by 40 metres and is composed of Tenerife's volcanic black sand. Very popular with the young and also naturists

Playa de Montana Amarilla (Costa del Silencio area)

Playa de Montana Amarilla

Playa de Montana Amarilla

Location of Playa de Montana Amarilla

The mountain a small extinct volcano with a caldera that has a section of it's rim missing on the North East side. Spectacular views are available from the Volcano's rim.

At the end of Calle Chasna near the sea near where a ladder is set into the rock for swimmers to use is a path tothe top of Montana Amarilla.  Please note that this path is steep and because of the loose sand and gravel over solid rock is very slippy. I therefore reccomend the route described below.

Travel east along Av de Jose Antonio Tavio to the end and the shopping centre shops pubs, continue east after a slight left twist in the road along Calle Olimpia for 180 metres to the sharp left bend.

Look for the dirt footpath that starts 50 metres away behind the wall on your right.

Follow the main foot path clockwise around the inland side of Amarilla mountain, this takes you to a rocky headland overlooking the bay on your right

For a very scenic route you can go via the top rim of the Amarilla mountain's Caldera again use the above path then take a minor track that starts centrally at the back of the mountain. Follow the trail up the mountain on your right and follow the main path along the rim anticlockwise untill it descends and meets a path on your right turn right. tHis path takes you around the outside of the mountain to the cove.

The Area is also available with a longer walk from Golf del Sur

There are plenty of good walking trails in this area with good views of this rugged coast line.
