Full description
Take a hike through the Anaga mountain range to go down to the second longest natural beach of Tenerife. The beach is very little traveled due to its limited accessibility: it is only possible to arrive there walking or by boat.

The route begins in La Cumbrilla, where you will go down a ravine to reach Antequera Beach. There, enjoy a boat ride to Santa Cruz de Tenerife.The route is a representation of the Canarian ecosystems, from laurel forests to extensive vegetation of cardonal-tabaibales, which has earned it consideration for the title of a natural reserve.

Antequera is one of Tenerife's most remote beaches just waiting to be discovered. The beach is made of fine grey sand and the best time to come is at low tide when it is not covered by the sea. It is popular among nudists. Access along the trail is quite tricky and you will need to be in good physical condition and reasonably experienced, but the journey is well worth the effort. Once you're there, take in the extraordinary scenery near the cliff that belongs to the Anaga mountain range and see the Antequera rock formation in the background.
