Apparently you can snorkel over the artificial offshore reef but in February I passed on that. The beach has a lifeguard during the day and there are bars and cafes round about to enjoy.

The dark sand and the lava rocks: this is a typical volcanic beach. Several small beach areas between the rocks. The wind and the waves are pounding hard from the Atlantic Ocean so it is no always possible to go into the water. Best to...More
