The high cliffs that surround this beach, the banana plantations that you need to navigate through to get to it, the standing rocks beaten by the waves and the solitary chiringuito positioned just above the black, volcanic sands make this a really special beach. it's...More

You have to be able to drive down a single lane road with blind corners, then walk down steps to this beach. But it's worth it. Black twinkling sand and waves. Two of the days we were there there was a red flag so no...More

It's very secluded and quiet. On a hot September day, there wasn't that many people on the beach. You could sit down somewhere and not have to worry about sitting next to anyone within 10 meters. If you're wanting a nice romantic date, such as...More

It's a very nice walk (depending from where you start in Puerto de la Cruz) between 30 and 60 minutes along the coast line between banana plantations. The beach has nice black sand, big waves and a small bar where you can drink and eat...More
