Playa Los Charcos

The most Northern of the four beaches in Costa Teguise. Found inside the shelter of two sea walls. At high tides the water laps against the near white sand. At low tide entry to the sea is across some rocks.

Swimming in the bay is safe as waves and current cannot get in through the small gap in the sea wall.

A relatively quiet beach by Costa Teguise standards with nearby parking.

Shelter from prevailing winds at the North end.
