Las Gaviotas beach is situated north of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, 1km from the beach of La Teresitas, although it is 6 km by road. The beach is a small black sand beach set underneath cliffs and is accessible by road only.
To get to the beach follow the TF-121 road from San Andreas towards Igueste de san Andrés. There is a road on the right sign posted ‘Las Gaviotas’, this narrow road winds down under the cliffs to a small car park at the beach.
The bus line 945 stops here, but you will have to walk down Calle las Gaviotas to get to the beach.
The beach is a popular nudist beach. It also has a drinks shack on the beach selling refreshments.
