Swimming at Ten Bel in Tenerife
May 9, 2010 Leave a comment
Ten Bel is an older style development on the Costa del Silencio side of Las Galletas. Some would say it is not a very pleasant development but it has more amenities than many other tourist locations in Tenerife. Firstly it is easy to get to by public transport, it has a bus station hub with frequent services to most locations. You can walk to the Ten Bel Alborada from Las Galletas in a few minutes.
It has a large shopping complex with all types of shops but the amazing thing about Ten Bel is the beach and man-made salt water swimming pool, which is really a massive lagoon with an enclose swimmming area of 3200 square metres, sometimes referred to as “the whale”. It is a humongous swimming pool.
Take a walk along the coastal path over the cliffs and there are several paths down to the sea for some alternative swimming.
The area is very popular with tourists who enjoy swimming and there are many holiday apartments on the seaside of Ten Bel.
