In fact, virtually all the organized beaches in the
Playa de las Américas area are "artificial" ones: with the sand
brought from afar, and with breakwaters constructed parallel to the shore
at some distance to protect the sand from being washed away. The Punta
Callao beach is one of the last few rough places remaining along
the about 10 km-long coastal line of Playa de las Américas
area between the village La Caleta in the North and the rocky
massif of Montaña de Guaza confining Los Christianos
from the South-East.
In Spain, where, according to national law,
the coastal line and the beaches make up a public area where everyone has
the right of unlimited access, the beach regulations mainly depend on local
It would appear very reasonable indeed, if the
authorities of Tenerife, of the Municipality of Arona, and of the town
of Los Christianos, arranged for an establishment of the "clothes-optional"
regime at the Callao beach when the time of its development comes. Perhaps
the Spanish Federation of Naturism and the Naturist Association of Canary
Islands might suggest and promote such and initiative?
