PIEDRA PLAYA Piedra playa is a big beach in the north of the island of Fueteventura that belongs to the municipality of La Oliva in the north of the island too. It’s a fantastic place for swimming, walking along the sand, going body boarding, surfing, windsurfing and kite surfing. The beach is really quiet but, when the big waves arrive, it’s not quiet any more. Behind the beach there are some big mountains and you can hear the sound of the wind going through the mountains and pushing the waves. That gives them more strength. I really like it because the sand is a mix of white and black sand and there are few rocks. In some rocks also there are mussels but it’s prohibited to take them. In the mountains there is a house with a colour flag. Every day, a person looks at the sea and changes it if the sea is rough. If the sea is quiet: the flag is green; if the sea isn’t too quiet: the flag is yellow and if the sea is rough with big waves: the flag is red. The colour red means danger, the yellow means warning and green means quiet.

This is Piedra Playa.

This is the wave of Piedra Playa.

ALMÁCIGA Almáciga is a beach of Anaga, a Natural Park that belongs to the municipality of Santa Cruz, in the North-West of Tenerife. Almáciga is a beach with very beautiful sand. There are stones at the beginning of the beach, but all the beach is of fine sand. In the sea, the sand also is fine, but only in summer, because in winter there are many stones on the shore and that’s why I like it in summer. We usually spend the night there, because it’s allowed. It’s my favorite place because it’s very beautiful and green.

If you visit them, you can learn a lot about the volcanic eruptions. These mountains are the result of volcanic eruptions . This happened in Lanzarote betweed 1730-1736 and later in 1824. This is important because it changed the landscape of the island. These mountains impressed me because the volcano is active and the different shapes of lava are amazing.

THE ARENAL BEACH The Arenal beach is a beach that changes much depending on the period of year we are For example, in winter it’s perfect for water sports like surfing due to strong waves, so it is common to find surfers in the area.
