It is not an easy walk to get to this beach and I would not recommend it to anyone with limited mobility.
However, the way to the beach is absolutely amazing The cliff path is out of this world !!!!
The beach itself is not the best for swimming as the currents are very strong so don't go out of your depth.

Got off the bus at LP-1, and got to the beach on foot. It was kind of a fun way down, but the return will definitely be a challenge. The beach is fantastic, though not that easy to reach. But it's totally worth it, the views and the scenery are just incredible. Giant waves, black sand (one of the finest I've ever come across) - they all make for a totally blissful state of mind. As for parking, there is plenty of space, but you'd still have to go on down on foot to reach the beach. As for the return, it's better to have your own car, as it's really unlikely you're going to come across a lot of visitors.

This beach is one of the best the island has to offer. It stretches very long and has some of the biggest waves on the island. It's popular with surfers and is surrounded by nature.

This beach is beautiful and spectacular, parking was easy when we went, the walk down is comfortable.
Currents are strong, not great for swimming, but the water temperature is great

Absolutely stunning beach - completely deserted when we were there . Advise heading there in the morning as by the time we got there in the afternoon the sun had nearly disappeared due to the high cliffs . Well worth the dramatic short cliff side walk from the parking area

Bit of a drive and a trek down to the beach but my goodness it is worth it. Just picture perfect, the black Sand is totally amazing! The views and the sea looked beautiful. It is basically a walk down a cliff, it is ok but perhaps a struggle if you have bad knees.

This beautiful black sand beach is not for swimmers as there are many strong dangerous undertow currents.
BUT, it is great for surfing or just relaxing!
To get there, you have to drive down through banana plantations to a spacious car park. Then stroll down along the long but well protected footpath with amazing views

Not sure how far exactly, but it must be at least half a mile from the parking lot to the beach. Well worth the effort. You'll pass an interesting cave on the way in.
The path along the cliffside is mostly paved with stone steps, and has a handrail which is little wobbly, but offers support if you might feel a little tippy from the uneven surface. I just wouldn't lean against it for fear it might fail. There's nothing to slow your descent below this railing except cactus, scrub brush, and boulders.
The sea was very turbulent, and the lifeguard told us no swimming, shallow wading only. But it's a beautiful place to just sit and enjoy below the cliffs towering above you.

Visited on a rough stormy day with big rollers coming in off the Atlantic. Can see the attraction in the summer as very secluded location and a walk round the cliff path to get to the beach. We enjoyed watching the Barbary falcons hunt from the car park. Don’t be put off by the steep drive down from the main road past the banana plantations.

Really close if you stay in Puntallana. Its a 10min walk down steps to the beach from the car park to a beach under the cliffs. The finest and best sand on the island and 200m long beach. Great for waves. No life guard when we were there. No facilities (toilet or cafe etc).
