Emergency services search for swimmer missing off Playa de Benijo

Emergency services, including helicopters, a lifeboat, and divers, spent yesterday afternoon and evening searching for a swimmer missing off playa de Benijo in north Tenerife. Emergency services say that they were alerted that the bather, said to be a young Italian man, was in difficulties 140 metres out to sea, but as darkness fell there was still no sight of him. The search resumes today.


  1. My friend Riccardo, it’s him
    What a tragedy guys, it’s very hard to describe how it feels like
    They still didn’t find him
    Who thought he would leave us this way
    Ciao Riccardo

  2. How sad. Coincidentally this beach is advertised in the most recent Monarch magazine and given 10/10 for the stunning scenery.
