Playa de las Américas in Tenerife is an exposed beach with reefs that has waves throughout the year. Perfect for learning to surf, as it has breaks for all conditions within a few minutes' walk from each other for beginner and more advanced surfers.

Most of the swell here comes from swells and the optimal swell angle is from the northwest, but nearby locations are working with swell from the southwest as well.

The lesson takes place in El Medio with right and left reefs. The quality of the waves is not affected by the tide. The famous nearby surf spots are El Conquistador, Piscina, El Dedo, La Derecha del Cartel, La Fitenia, La Izquierda.
