Long Description:
Tenerife is a volcanic island and the beaches tend to consist of black volcanic sand.

"Playa Jardín was landscaped for peace and relaxation by famed architect and artist César Manrique, it stretches for 3,274 feet (one kilometre) giving you plenty of space and comfort. It runs from the old part of town called Punta Brava to Castillo de San Felipe in the west of the town. Palm trees that sway in a gentle sea breeze surround the stretch of fine, dark-coloured sand. Glorious blue skies and a wonderful warm sun will take all your cares away and the temperate waters are the ideal place for a relaxing dip. Unwind on a sunbed, doze off under a sunshade or grab a refreshing drink from the kiosk on the sand. In addition, there are also ample shower facilities.

hind the beach are lovely gardens that include endemic plants and flowers including an abundance of cacti. Restaurants and bars line this promenade area where you can people watch, grab a bite to eat and observe the beauty of the sun disappearing behind the horizon."

The coordinates of the waymark are at the eastern end of the beach at a ramp next to a small fortress, Castillo San Filipe, and there is plenty of parking along the road next to the landscaped gardens.
