Playa Abama is situated very close to Playa San Juan and it has crystal clear waters, protected by big rocks thrown into the sea to break the waves and keep the beach safe for swimming. Some natural pools form nearby, so there’s a lot to explore and discover.

A public and pristine beach, hidden on the grounds of a luxury hotel

In order to get to the beach you have to go through the private ground of the luxury hotel Ritz Carlton, but the beach is public, like all beaches in Spain. Parking is difficult and the places fill up quickly during the first morning hours.

Playa De Abama

From the carpark you will have to walk around 1 km to the beach, a pleasant 20 minutes walk or you can take the little tram that helps visitors to cross the hotel’s enormous grounds. In order to get down to Abama beach you can use the path or the hotel’s lift.

On the beach you will find sun loungers that can be rented for around 8 euros per day each and a restaurant which is also part of the Ritz Carlton Hotel Tenerife. The food and the views are amazing, but the prices are of course higher than the average.

Enjoy a beautiful sunset from this charming beach, far away from the noisy resorts

The beach offers great views of the sunset in Tenerife, but be warned that the lift that can take you back up is open only until 18:00. This makes that you will have to go back up on foot, using the dedicated path.

Playa de Abama is different from other beaches in Tenerife, it has an exclusive feel due to the fact that is hidden behind the hotel’s grounds and you have to know about it in order to get there. It is ideal for families with children and if you are a guest of the Ritz Carlton hotel you can use all the facilities like the sun loungers and umbrellas for free.
