You never know what you're going to get at Guayedra beach. Some days the whole beach is stony and the sea too rough to swim, while others there's big patches of sand and small waves. Arrive close to low tide and you'll get more sand and smaller waves. Arrive anytime and you'll get sunshine. Guayedra gets the same sunny weather as the Agaete Valley.
The views from the sand are fantastic as you see Tenerife and Teide on the horizon, Puerto de las Nieves to the north and the rugged west coast stretching out to the south. Take care swimming at
