A beautiful untouched black sanded beach. There are no sunbeds, umbrellas, not even a toilet or a trash can, but this just makes it more amazing. The view is stunning and the road to here through Anaga is breathtaking. It's a good place to surfers...More

Like other Canary Isles, Tenerife isn't blessed with many good natural beaches. There are a number of artificial beaches with imported sand and some decent beaches with natural black volcanic sand. Benijo isn't either of these. Though listed on some websites as one of Tenerife's...More

Excellent value €20 for a feast for 2. The fish must have swam into the kitchen. Views to die for. Wonderful wine, great service.

Absolutely breathtaking place! Not many people there. The drive to Benijo is a great experience by itself.

The beach was pretty and the location was a fun drive. I would suggest just that, a car! Long winding drive. Beautiful views and spectacular sunset. However the beach itself was quite small, so it’s not much of a place to play. Many surfers out,...More
