Large beach with this magnificent black sand... it feels somehow like Mars or something, unearthly beautiful. Pick your spot well, it can get loud and crowdy at times. Most restaurants and coffee shops rent beach chairs for free if you eat/drink there

The black sand beaches can be exceptionally hot....so make sure you wear... More

Very clean. Always a few people. Clean water. Not big waves. Behind the next mountain wave is much higher, there is impossible to swim.
