Trash The Dress sessions have set the benchmark for post-wedding photoshoots for several years now. The most attractive element of this type of session is the choice of a location that contrasts with the bride and groom’s outfits: abandoned houses, walls with graffiti, industrial estates, fairytale forests….
Yet the backdrop that most couples choose is the beach, and on the Canary Islands we have hundreds of stunning areas to put together an unforgettable memoir. Here are just some examples.
Playa de Benijo
This beach with black volcanic sand is one of the prettiest in Tenerife. It is an untamed beach close to los Roques de Anaga and which is accessed via a staircase. The journey takes 15-20 minutes on the way down and it is advisable to be in good shape so that you can get back to the road without too much difficulty.
Playa de Maspalomas
Located in the south part of Gran Canaria, this is the largest beach on the island and runs from the Lighthouse at Maspalomas and the Playa del Inglés. Its limits are located in the Maspalomas Dunes and the Maspalomas Marshlands, protected natural spaces of major scientific and touristic interest.
Playa de El Salado
The Graciosa beach measures almost two kilometres in length and is located very close to the Caleta del Sebo. From this isolated setting swathed in golden sands, the cliffs of Famara, in Lanzarote, can be seen.
Also known as Playa de los Guirres, this enclave in La Palma has a length of more than one and a half kilometres located between Puerto Naos and Tazacorte it is a favoured spot with surfers.
Playa del Papagayo
Its turquoise coloured waters and golden sands are located barely five minutes from the Playa Blanca development, in Lanzarote. It is divided into small coves which offer unrivalled privacy for bathers. As well as affording views over Fuerteventura and the Lobos Island, an area protected from the winds where good weather is an ever-present.
Playa de Santa Catalina
In La Gomera, in the town of Hermigua, this beach is located where surfers are found all year round thanks to the quality of its waves. To the north of this beach, we can still see the remains of the Hermigua divat, on which the bales of bananas were shipped to the United Kingdom until it was sold and disassembled in 1957.
Playa de Corralejo
This area running for nine kilometres with its golden sands in Fuerteventura is considered one of the best beaches in Spain. It is divided into a large number of beaches, large ones in the north end and smaller, wilder ones towards the south.
This is one of the most magical placing on El Hierro island Its access point, whilst alongside a cliff, it by no means dangerous. Once inside, we can choose between bathing in the open sea or inside a cavern.
