Playa del Socorro is situated on the north west coast of Tenerife and it’s a popular spot for surfers around the island.
A Mecca for surfers in Tenerife
The ocean can sometimes be rough at Playa del Socorro, which makes it a popular attraction for surfers and watersports lovers. You could also come here to relax on the dark black sand, but make sure to bring a towel, as there are no sun loungers. Given the constant waves and the fact that the beach is very open, it might not prove to be a good choice for families with young kids.
You will find a public parking nearby, but finding a free spot is never easy. From the parking you can use the access ramp that leads directly to the beach. This makes for an easy access if you are travelling with a wheelchair or a stroller for kids.
Playa del Socorro is vast and probably one of the largest natural beaches in Tenerife. Although it isn’t an urban beach, you will find here all the amenities you need to spend the day: showers, toilets, lifeguards and parking.
There is also a beach bar on site, very appreciated and loved among visitors.
