Long Description:
Tenerife is a volcanic island and the beaches tend to consist of black volcanic sand. It is also in the Atlantic ocean and the waves on this beach are popular with surfers.

"Make sure you do not miss the second beach of Puerto de la Cruz, the cosy Playa Martiánez. It is simple and unspoiled; a great place to relax on the dark coloured sand. There is a bistro overlooking the ocean and a few cafés and bars nearby. This beach is located next to the renowned Lago Martianez, an impressive outdoor water park featuring salt water lakes, cascading waterfalls, volcanic rock sculptures and stunning sub-tropical gardens. Another of César Manrique’s creations, this top attraction adds to the overall popularity of Puerto de la Cruz, especially with families."

A sign on the beach give lots of information about the surfing conditions, and helpful hints about surfing etiquette.
