Playa de Martianez

A long promenade passes in front of the beach, with benches and sitting areas from where you can admire the view of the ocean. If you move a little further from the beach you will get to Parque Martianez, designed by the Canarian architect Cesar Manrique.

Martianez beach has black volcanic sand and it offers easy access for wheelchairs, although there are no facilities like sun loungers or umbrellas and not even lifeguards on site. The beach is usually frequented by surfers and it offers a lot of space for long walks and exploration, given itss considerable size: 350 m in length and 40 m in width.
