Beaches in La Caleta
Playa de la Enramada
This is a very nice beach, with a beach bar where people come for the live music in the evenings.
It is a clean beach, with black volcanic sand and it's not very crowded.
Playa La Caleta
This beach has become more popular in recent years, due to the addition of the sun loungers and the beach bar, which makes it convenient now to have a drink while lounging in the sun.
It is still a peaceful place to spend the day in Tenerife south and offers brilliant views of the ocean.
