Alcala’ is one of my favorite swimming destinations in Tenerife.
If you park in the town square and head to the sea, you will find a small beach followed by a sunbathing terrace with a number of steps into the sea.
Sunbeds and parasols are available on the terrace along with foot showers on the beach. I love diving from the key into the swirling waters at high tide and swimming with the turtles.
The brilliance of the chrome handrails gives the place the feel of a true lido tempting swimmers into the water. Nearby cafe’s revive travelers and refresh swimmers with sea views across a tiny black sand beach to the rock formations beyond.
When you think you have seen and done it all its time to go and find the sea pools and new beaches just a few minutes walk away.
From the beach walk along the lido terrace and follow the coastal path through the recreation areas and on to the sea pools. Hear you will find toilet facilities and a beach bar in an area that is ideal for children. Don’t forget to take a snorkel.
