The local area
Las Gaviotas is a rural coastal hideaway at the start of the Anaga mountains and just 15 minutes by car to the capital city, Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
If you want to explore the nudist beaches in Tenerife, Playa de las Gaviotas is an excellent option. You can expect soft black sand, friendly locals and crystal clear water.
Playa Chica Modernist Hideaway has direct access to Playa Chica, a sumptuously soft black sand beach. It is almost private and solely used by the residents of the building due to restricted access. You can admire the outstanding architectural design of the building while taking a refreshing swim in the ocean.
It is easy to loose track of time and spend your days relaxing in this little slice of paradise on the beach in Tenerife.
For when you want to explore the island a little more, there is lots to discover nearby…
Head down to San Andrés for Playa de las Teresitas, the iconic white sand beach with its calm waters, SUP rentals and cool beach bars. San Andrés is known for its fish and seafood restaurants and we will share our favourites with you in our guest information guide.
Continue past San Andrés to the capital of the island and explore the bustling local market, colonial architecture, green parks, shopping centres, independent boutiques and a note-worthy restaurant scene.
If hiking and mountains are your thing, you’ll be staying 4 kilometres from the Anaga mountains, which you can reach through Igueste de San Andrés.
Over the Anaga mountains to the north-east side of the island lies three magnificent beaches in Taganana – Playa de Benijo is our favourite and a must if you want to tick off the best nudist beaches in Tenerife. Finish the day with a typical Canarian meal washed down by handmade wine at one of Taganana’s traditional restaurants.

Beautiful space overlooking a private beach. Very peaceful, away from all the hustle and bustle of city life but within 15 minutes drive you can reach the main town. Ideal for those wanting to escape but still be close to everything. We worked for a couple of days from the flat, the WiFi was sufficient for us although there is very little phone reception due to it being in a mountainous location. The apartment had all the essentials you could want to be able to cook meals throughout the day. We arrived late in the evening which the hosts accommodated and even picked up some supplies to see us through the next morning which was a very thoughtful touch. We enjoyed waking up and having our morning coffee on the balcony watching the sunrise. Thank you for a lovely stay.
Absolutely stunning apartment that defies gravity, incredible location, directly on the beach - like something from a 60s Italian movie. No road in front, just beach! This is a beautiful building built right into the cliffside overlooking a private beach, designed by a famous Tenerife architect from the late 60s: modernist architecture and design enthusiasts will especially love staying here. The hosts have clearly recently renovated this beautiful flat, and have thought of all the little touches: beautiful bed linen, pillows, lamps, high quality kitchen appliances, joinery and bathroom fittings - nothing is left out (except washing machine - for washing you need to go to the main city, 20 minutes away). They really have great taste in interiors. Right behind the flat is the beautiful Anaga national park, with plenty of hiking trails.... so this modernist masterpiece sits right between beach and mountain. A rare delight!
Really beautiful and smartly designed apartment! It's really well equipped and was totally clean. Wifi is good compared to other apartments. Communication with the host was easy and quick. I would definitely stay there again.
