The beaches of Arona

For those who love beaches, those in Arona are idyllic and you must discover them all.

Charco del Baño

The small, pebble and dark volcanic sand beach is separated from Las Galletas beach by a small marina. At this quiet pleasant spot, residents and visitors can enjoy crystal-clear waters and a clean coastal landscape. A short promenade runs along the waters edge where restaurants offer exquisite local seafood. In July, the “Fiestas del Carmen” turn this peaceful place into a cheerful, colourful village. Small boats decorated with brightly coloured ribbons set sail with its “patrona” (our Lady of El Carmen) on board, along with fireworks displays.


Las Galletas beach

Black volcanic sands and natural pebbles, are shielded by a small bay with crystalline waters. It’s a pleasant, peaceful place to be in. Las Galletas is a small fishing village so you can often enjoy a view of sailing boats on the open sea.


Costa del Silencio

This lives up to its name, one of the most quiet, peaceful areas in Arona. Costa del Silencio beach has very little sand and few rest areas but this coastline offers to its visitors peace to relax by the mild, transparent waters of the Atlantic ocean.

It is extremely popular not only for residents but visitors and suitable for all kind of users. A place where young and old will spend an unforgettable day.

Los Cristianos Beach

A beach with history located right in the centre of town. This golden sand and crystal-clear waters beach, where vessels can be spotted in the distance, is in a peaceful natural cove, shielded from the winds by the fishing port.
