This is a nice getaway place from gambling in Macau.. A chilled out place with lots of empty spots to lay down in the sand, or rest at the tables with some beers or a self made meal. There are also some nice restaurants situated here as Miramar (very nice) and Fernando's (recommended in Lonely Planet). Sadly the black sand... More

Like the atmosphere, the greenery, natural surrounding, peace and quiet. Westin shuttle bus did not have designated pick up point, hope this can change for the convenience of guests.

The beach is away from the casinos and busyness of Macau, and has good facilities, so that is the good part. Sadly, the beach is very narrow, because the sidewalks and buildings are so close to the ocean. The sand is in fact black right at the edge, and farther back is dark brown with hints of black. This has... More

It will be good beach after reconstruction. Long beach (about 1000 meters) with dark sand. You can go to beach by bus number 25 or 26A. It is about 30 min from Grand Lisboa.

Really nice area, out of the colorful light of the "Casinao" Macao. Time to relax and the beach you don't expect white sand by the name... Only problem are the dirt and dog excrement around there. Even it looks to get cleaned from time to time... Not far from the Westin, what is a nice family resort and several small... More

The black sand beach is where you go when you live in Macau and want to go to the beach. The water isn't very blue, nor does the sand look any clean. The beach is usually inundated with teenagers doing barbecues or Chinese people taking wedding photos. I would try to skip this beach. Cheoc Wan is nicer..

The beach was rather quiet when we visited it on a weekend. The sands are no longer black, it seems that it has been filled with other sands due to erosion. Not really worth the visit unless you have the time. The beach was also quite a distance away from the other attraction.

I don't really know why this beach is called "black sand beach", cause actually its sand is not that black, but i surely know my girlfriend and I simply love this place! We find the atmophere so romantic, especially when it gets dark, and if you are there don't forget to eat at Fernando's, it's a must! Close to this... More

The Chinese name is Hac Sa, meaning black sand and the sand is somewhat dark black and fine. There's not much there, so most only go down to the beach for a walk after a full meal at the famous Fernando's. Fernando is not proper Portuguese food. It's mainly roasted suckling pig, grilled sardines, grilled chicken, garlic shrimps and a... More

I have visited a number of beaches, and this one wasn't bad but wasn't amazing either. It is quiet, or at least was when I went, which was a plus and the beach is kept quite clean. I had hoped the sand might be a little more noticeably black then a standard beach.
