¡Vamos a la playa!
El Burrero Beach is the so-called Ingenio winter beach, it is 7 kilometers from our B&B, which is about 15 minutes by car. It is usually a fairly quiet place, there is ample parking and a good restaurant. The water is very clear and clean, so it is ideal for snorkeling and windsurfing, and it is still an excellent place also in winter, so your visit at any time of the year will always be positive.
A few kilometers from the villa, towards the north, we find some interesting beaches. First, the beach of Ojos de Garza, a small and picturesque beach that disappears almost completely at high tide. It is one of our favorites! The Zurita restaurant serves delicious fried fish and the view is fantastic.
Tufia beach is made of black lava sand, which forms a beautiful contrast with the white and blue houses of the town. The underwater world is also worth it. A little further north is the great black beach of Melenara, a good place to be under the watchful eye of the statue of Neptune. There is a small shop and numerous seafood restaurants, including the local favorite, La Rubia.
To the south of Ingenio, it is worth mentioning Vargas Beach, which is a rocky beach frequently used for windsurfing and kitesurfing, but it is also a good place to relax. And it is also worth mentioning the Arinaga Beach, which is located in the middle of an industrial estate, which may seem a bit odd at first, but it is very cozy, and also has numerous food restaurants of various types, mainly fish and seafood.
Finally, mention that there are also beaches to the south and north of Ingenio that are well known, such as Playa del Inglés or Las Canteras Beach, but in these places tens of thousands of tourists and locals tend to concentrate, since they are the most internationally known, so if you are looking to relax, we recommend you the beaches mentioned above.
