Best for Posing - Expert review of Las Teresitas

Playground for the city and my favourite beach.

When four million sacks of sahara sand were deposited 8 km outside the capital city, they created the almost perfect, archetypal tropical beach. The beach is so vast that it could accommodate the entire city and you'd still have loads of personal space. Backed by the stunning Anaga Mountains and bordered by swaying palm trees, the sheltered waters are perfect for swimming and snorkelling.

Expert tips: 
On windy days (of which there are quite a few) you need a sunbed to avoid becoming a sand sculpture.
The kiosks at the back of the beach are great for tapas and cold beers.
Treat yourself to lunch at the village of San Andrés behind the beach where you'll find the best fish restaurants on the island.
