1. TACORON CREEK: A tour to this beach can be the highlight of your visit to the Canary Islands. Located in the island of El Hierro, it’s here where you can find the Devil’s Cave. Exploring this underwater cave is another activity you can do other than the regular beach scene. It’s a dive site rich in marine wildlife like the spiny puffer and native fishes in the Canary Islands. 

2. CHARCO AZUL BEACH: You can also explore the two sea pools on the Charco Azul Beach in La Palma. The pools were formed by nature and the most attractive one is located inside an accessible natural cave. The beach water here is great, perfect for idle lapping.

3. SOTOVENTO BEACH: If a quiet time is what you want, you can hangout at Sotovento Beach or otherwise known as Playa Barca (Fuerteventura). Be sure to bring all the necessities you need because it’s literally a quiet beach far from the resort areas. Don’t be surprised if you come across nudists sunbathing in Sotovento.

4. COTILLO BEACH: Located in Fuerteventura, this beach is not often frequented by tourists, making it an ideal place to just spend R and R with yourself. But be careful because the waters here are not that friendly, it’s known to have strong currents. Nevertheless, the beach itself is breathtaking, amplified by the landscape surrounded by the Jandia Mountains.
