Los Cancajos

May 26, 2019

  If a beach is all you want for your holiday, then frankly you’re better off in Tenerife. But if a beach is part of the mix, then we have two main beach resorts, Los Cancajos and Puerto Naos. Our sand is like the Model T Ford – “Any colour you like, as long as it’s blak”. When the sea mashes up black, volcanic rock, that’s what you get. However,…
