Secluded spot, peace and tranquility, away from the masses. Found this beach through TripAdvisor, search . Concur with other reviewers, difficult to find, glad we had the sat-nav, parking a little difficult, especially on the day we went, car park closed, probably due to it being the end of the holiday season, so we had to walk a little further,...

Away from the hustle of Puerto De la Cruz this beach is a short trip away and definitely worth the trip. We ran from our hotel on our morning run after being told about this secretive place... it takes some finding but wow as you come over the cliff the view is amazing and when we arrived the beach was...

The most amazing place we have ever been. It is natural place with black sand, big waves, beautiful surrounding, it is clean (no trash on the beach, enough trash cans there), they have toilet, peaceful and big beach with not a lot of visitors at least not when we were there, if you ask us it is only for young...

enjoyed a lovely walk from Porto de la Cruz to Bollullo, through the banana plantation, and the old terraces. the beach is fascinating, with the black volcanic sand and the big waves. very relaxing, nit at all busy, and a coffee shop, well stocked and with friendly staff. all good. well worth a visit.

The beach is so nice with big waves and such a black sparkling sand that gives you the wish to stay here forever. Is not a full of tourists beach which makes it better, is not a noisy one and all the people that comes here are nice, too. You can eat some snacks on the bar, but don't hope... More

We walked from Puerto de la Cruz to Playa Bullullo. It was about 35 minutes from our hotel. If you like to walk it is a must. The walk goes through a banana plantation, then through a ravine before taking you to the beach where you must make your way down from the top of the cliff to the black... More

Spent an hour walking here from Puerto but it was absolutely worth the jaunt. Although you can get a taxi to the top entrance there is still a few steps to climb down before reaching the beach. Obviously it's inaccessible to wheelchairs and people with walking difficulties. There's a bar on the beach and a place to rent parasols and... More

I did my research. I was looking for the best beach in Tenerife. After reading a lot of reviews (from local people! not tourists) we decided to go to El Bollullo. It was great! PRO: Black sand, no rocks, incredible waves, not a lot of people, two lifeguards, a little shop. CON: You can't really swim, the waves are to... More
