Abama Beach, Tenerife

Hands down this was my favourite beach in all of Tenerife… Not that I visited every beach to make this comparison but I bet if I did, I can almost guarantee I would still come to the same conclusion.

Also known as Tenerife’s “Secret Beach”, Abama beach has soft, clean sand, calm waters, a restaurant/bar and best of all space and privacy. To get to this beach you have to walk about a kilometre from the car park which is quite an effort on a hot day, especially with a beach bag but I promise you, it’s worth it. I think the real secret about this beach, is that no one wants to do the walk so they move onto to the next one!

Cliff edge

We rented a super scooter for the week and were lucky enough to get a away with parking it behind the restaurant, at the bottom of the hill. I’m not advising anyone to do this themselves as I don’t think you’re meant to do this… But it was nice walking 5 metres to the beach as opposed to the 1 kilometre.

To stop the waves breaking, large rocks have been placed in the sea, which makes for beautifully calm water and a great snorkelling spot. The best part of going to the beach is getting in the sea and snorkelling. I’m not great at laying down doing nothing (aka relaxing), I’ve always got to be doing something so the snorkelling kept me happy and entertained.

I don’t know what it is about swimming in the sea but I’m always starving afterwards. Prior to the beach Mitch and I had done a lunch shop at Lidl (the bakery section of course). Drying in the sun with an orange juice in one hand and a freshly baked roll in the other, I couldn’t be happier. The only thing that would improve this scene is maybe a puppy and a nice lottery win in the bank, I’m easily pleased you know!

After a beautiful day on the beach and now dry, we went for a wander on the rocks to inspect the rock pools and take in the stunning horizon.

Feeling crabby

If you’re planning a visit to Tenerife, please, please go to this beach and bring a packed lunch and snorkel with you. You won’t regret it! I’m currently writing this whilst sitting on the plane home nursing a strong case of holiday blues, looking at these photos is not helping… Oh well time to book the next trip I guess!

  1. Hi Emily,

    Sounds like a great time. We have beaches near us so I get the idea how cool it is to visit. Are beaches in England more for relaxing or are water sports common?

    Thanks, Gary

    1. Hi Gary,

      Great to hear from you. They’re more for relaxing however we only get a very small window of time to this in England due to the weather. Most of the year we use the beaches dog walking or if you’re like me, metal detecting 😁

      Hope you’re well!
