About Tenerife beaches Realejos and why are they winning popularity?

In fact, 'Tenerife beaches Realejos are the best', is what a friend of mine called Karel said about those little known seashores of the north.

He and his girlfriend came all the way from Prague to explore mountains, forests and seasides of Tenerife. They fell in love with one of the shores of Los Realejos in particular. I was so impressed, as those were not the first young foreigners who told me so.

Surfing Playa El Soccorro of Tenerife beaches Realejos

Actually, the most surprising is paddle surfing on Playa el Socorro. Depicted are two paddle surfers, one inside the Atlantic ocean and one outside.

An Austrian acquaintance of mine and her boyfriend are absolutely taken with Playa beach El Socorro of Realejos. Almost every afternoon, the two surf fans go there by bicycle.

Short description of Realejos beaches

None of them are more than 250 x 60 m in size. Most have black sands and or big pebbles. They are slightly wild and challenging, but cozy, romantic and often private and half hidden. That may also mean that they are hard to reach shores of Tenerife beaches Realejos.

Main Realejos beaches

The two Tenerife beaches Realejos of Playa del Socorro and Playa Grimona make up the most interesting, sandy seashores of its region.

In summer both seasides are joined to one, while the Grimalda beach is mostly covered with water in winter.

A beach surrounded by most stunning landscape

Portrayed is the Realejos Insider beach  Playa de La Fajana whose picture was taken in winter. That's when only a narrow stretch of pebbles is showing. This small seashore must be the hardest to reach of all of them. It's for surfing. I once saw several guys with surf boards climbing down those rocks like mountain goats.  Even a tent could be seen by the water's edge. By the looks of it, locals don't want this shore too exposed.

    Flood or tide play an important role. Therefore, most of their seashores are pretty much submerged in winter.

    Playa de los Roques by Los Roques and Maritim hotels

    The Los Realejos beach of Rocks Playa Los Roques is rather recommendable in summer. That's when a British Reiki master friend of a friend of mine preferred it to all other beaches of Tenerife North. He loved to listen to the murmuring of the water when it approaches to kiss the coastal edge. A rough beach of mostly pebbles, with unbeatable landscapes are around it. He adored to be mostly by himself there, while men seemed far away where they fished from rocks. There, he felt embraced and inspired by both ocean and land elements around him. It was his preferred way to holiday.

    Playa Beach La Fajana

    Not only the man from Prague seemed to be very fond of beach Playa La Fajana. I once saw it after climbing down to the ruin of Los Realejos. I noticed that it was an almost hidden surf beach for local guys. Beach La Fajana may be reached from San Pedro or from the Rambla del Castro near Romantica 1.

    Playa Beach Castro or del Camelo

    Realejos Castro beachRealejos Castro Beach

    The Realejos Castro beach which is known as Playa del Camelo with the locals is even nicer than Playa Fajana that adjoins it. Both beaches are divided by a long breakwater shaped rock which looks like a camel that floats on water. This one of Tenerife beaches Realejos looks like a dream beach to me in its fantastic setting of palm groves. Besides, its cliffs and slopes look like totally covered by plants. If only getting to it or to beach Fajana wasn't so steep! Karel told me that I should not attempt to do so. Castro beach is part of protected spaces of Tenerife. This fact doesn't always exactly encourage the easiest getting around.

    By the way, try your luck at reserving an almost luxury accommodation above Castro beach with one of most priceless views of the island which find listed with varied Los Realejos hotels , as San Pedro apartments.
