Playa de la Tejita is a relatively long sandy beach on the south coast, close to Tenerife South Airport. The “Blue Flag” beach is renowned as being popular with naturalists and the most gay-popular beach (with both tourists and local guys) on the Island (particularly the right hand side).

There are sun loungers and shades available for hire on sunny days and there is plenty of free car parking, but otherwise facilities are quite limited. Bring your own refreshments. The beach can be windy, so taking a windbreak is a good idea.

Gay popular beach in Tenerife

We took this photo early morning on a relatively cool, mid-week in early December. Factors that meant the beach was almost deserted. The beach is most popular from April through to September (although even in peak season, don’t expect to find as many gay sunbathers as in Maspalomas Beach in nearby Gran Canaria island.

    “Hello, in Tenerife there are many beaches around the whole island. Not that they are exclusively gay beaches, but many if they are for nudists in case they are interested.“
