Best for Escapists - Expert review of Playa Bollullo

Way off the tourist trail and my favourite local beach.

Just over the border into La Orotava but much closer to Puerto is the locals' favourite beach of Bollullo.

Accessible only by a single passing lane down a cliff side, not many visitors find this beach and even fewer are prepared to make the trek but for those who do, you're rewarded with sheltered black sand coves below cliffs.

One small cafe serves the beach, the toilets are not for the faint hearted and the waves are tsunami-sized but the beach is unspoilt, uncrowded and a sun trap.

Expert tips: 
The next cove along is favoured by nude sunbathers and the furthest cove allows camping on the beach.
