Good long beach, dark sand, view of the volcano, fairly quiet if you walk away from the beach bar /sunbed area. Quite a few nudist bathers.

When wind came from the South East, the far side of the beach was the good launch spot for kiteboarding. When there was no wind at all, the climb to the top of Montana Roja was a nice distraction and a little exercise.

Dark sand, few sun loungers, big open space. Not pretty. Nice for a walk. Plenty of nude opportunities, esp on the far right hand side. No beach bar. Just a bit bleak and unattractive.

A very interesting beach - people nude all over the beach, lots of life, some people windsurfing and paragliding.
