Playa Del Duque

 

The sand here used to be black volcanic sand typical to Tenerife, but it was changed in the recent years with imported golden sand, which now makes it more attractive to tourists. The sun loungers and umbrellas for hire are more expensive at Playa del Duque than in other places: prices are around the €20 mark for 2 sunbeds and 1 umbrella for the day.

The beach here is protected by large rocks formations that act like a breakwater and help keep the waves low and the water calm. This is the reason why it is ideal for families with children, since it is very safe and ideal for swimming.

Playa de las Americas resort it located just 4 kilometers away and it is easy to get to by bus or taxi if you want to join in the fun nightlife. Plenty of clubs keep parties going until morning hours.

Playa del Duque has an ideal location for day trips to other nearby beaches and resorts

Playa del Duque is connected through a promenade almost all the way to Playa Troya in Las Americas, through Playa Fanabe, Playa Torviscas and towards the famous Las Vistas beach in Los Cristianos. This makes for plenty of opportunities for long walks or day trips to the other resorts situated nearby. Fanabe is just 10 minutes walking distance and the prices there are usually lower in terms of restaurants and hotels also.

On the west side you can make a trip to Los Gigantes to see the giant cliffs that rise up from the ocean to almost 800 m high.
