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.

This beach is a bit of a hidden gem. Ample parking is next to the beach. There is real grass with lots of shade from the trees.

Best enjoyed at high tide.

For Wing foiling and wind surfing its a great location. A wave also breaks between the two sea walls and higher tides.

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.
