Beach of El Socorro

Beach of El Socorro



The beach of el Socorro, also called Chimisay, is located in the southeast of Güímar and extends to the entrance of the Malpaís of Güímar. According to the story, around 1392 the image of the Virgin of El Socorro appeared on this beach when Mencey Acaymo ruled. A cross today indicates the location of these events. The nearby Ermita, built in the mid-16th century, has been declared a historical and artistic monument.
