⭕ The monumental traffic jams that occur almost daily in the Port of Los Cristianos with the arrival of ferries reveal a tricky logistical and road mobility problem.

Spectacular Sunsets

Tenerife’s unique sunsets turn places that are already special into something truly wonderful. Here are just some Tenerife sunsets that look like works of art.


Sunset over Playa de Las Vistas. If a day in the sunshine on this popular beach sounds good, then wait until the magic hour and experience one of the best sunsets in south Tenerife. This purple sunset is caused by an atmospheric anomaly but every sunset at Las Vistas is the cherry on the cake of a perfect beach day.


In the north a beach made famous by photographers; Benijo beach. This hidden spot in remote Anaga has some of the best and most photogenic sunsets in all of Tenerife.


Bajamar is where locals and visitors go swimming in the natural pools or walk along the pretty shore towards the iconic lighthouse. The lighthouse is also the focal point that allows you to make your sunset photos a little different.


Puerto de la Cruz has a few aces hidden up its sleeve and sunsets are a big part of its appeal. For a beach sunset like the one above head to Playa Jardín.


The Buenavista Golf course offers unmatchable views out over the rugged northwest coast of Tenerife. From here you can watch the sun drop behind the horizon while you listen to the waves washing against La Arena beach.


There is no other place to end this list of Tenerife sunset spots than at the Teide National Park with the island at your feet as the sun sets behind Spain’s highest mountain this view will make memories that will stay with you forever.
