I bet you haven’t even heard about it, because it is more a local gem than tourist atraction. To know about this place, some local Tenerife resident have to tell you about hidden beach of La Caleta.
To visit this wild beach, you have to get to small, yet beautiful town of La Caleta de Adeje. Inhabitants here chose to stay very close with nature and further from comfort that we are used to see in a place like Tenerife.
When you reach this hidden, natural beach, you will immediately spot many little huts. All made from branches, palm leaves and rock. These tiny buildings are home for several „hippies”. Some of them are living there for months, some of them even for years. Many will tell you, that they are just dropouts from society who chose to stay aside from modern world influence, goods and responsibility. But I can assure you, that is partly a lie. This beach with its residents is just 5 minutes walk from town of La Caleta. With all of its shops, restaurants and the rest of the modern world.
Some of them have job, which requires computer, smartphone and other gadgets, so they have it. And some of the inhabitants are pretty wealthy, because they can afford not only to buy goods from grocery store, but also eat at the restaurants of nearby town.
This place is must see for everyone who is visiting this side of the island. It have not only unique huts with peculiar inhabitants, but also an amazing landscape. Here you can hike around the cliffs, rest, swim if you want or even try cactus fruits when they are blooming. Give it a try, you will love it!
