Playa La Jaquita - very beautiful promenade next to Alcala, which invites you to take a walk even on cooler days. In addition to the beaches, there are also some natural pools that are a little warmer and more sheltered, especially in winter.
Abama Beach - beautiful beach right next to the luxury Hotel Abama. It takes about 15 minutes to walk from the car park to the beach. But the white beach is very nicely laid out with wave breakers in front of it, so that you can swim safely even in heavy seas.
La Caleta - beautiful beach promenade with a beach bar where you can enjoy the sunset and where paragliders land when the weather is right.
El Medano - long white sandy beach, which is not only for swimming. Perfect place for windsurfing/kitesurfing. There are lots of surf schools that rent out the appropriate equipment.
Buenavista - beach in the north of the island, which can be very rough. If the wind is too strong it's better to sit sheltered in the Restaurant El Burgado and watch the waves.
