Beach yoga and mojitos
Las Teresitas is one of Tenerife’s most beautiful beaches, a sweeping, palm-fringed bay almost a mile long on the north-east of the island. It would be completely understandable if you wanted to simply sit and enjoy its golden sand and still waters, but those wanting an even more revitalising experience can take part in a gently stimulating yoga classes. A fully qualified instructor will lead a group through an hour-long class, which will give you a chance to stretch out, unwind and realign.
Of course, the warm sand, cool breeze and gentle lap of waves make this an idyllic place to exercise for established yogis but, even if you have never tried yoga before, this class could be the perfect introduction to the ancient practice. The instructors will gauge your level and adapt the moves and poses to your abilities and, by the end of the session, you should feel relaxed and wonderfully supple.
Afterwards, you can have a cocktail at one of Las Teresitas’ beach bars, and then the day is yours to do with as you see fit. A dip in the crystalline sea? A snooze on a lounger? Or, if you’re in the mood for more, you can wander to the picturesque fishing village of San Andrés for lunch or follow one of the trails along the Anaga mountains, the slopes of which start to rise immediately behind the beach.
