The water is clear, the sand and colour of the ocean make you feel like if you were on paradise... definitely worth a visit, especially during week days (less crowd), and if you like snorkeling, Another option is to go there by boat from Playa Blanca...

A series of beaches near Playa Blanca, this is not the easiest place to get to without a car. It costs 3 Euro to access the beaches buy car and the roads are just dirt tracks. There are very few facilities and very little shade from the sun. But the beaches are great, lots of fish very close to the shore to see if you are snorkeling - in fact you can even stand in the sea in some places and stick you head underwater to see the fish!
The lack of facilities means you need to bring everything you want with you but also means a total lack of litter anywhere.

Went to this beach after reading the reviews on here - yes it was a bumpy ride in a hire car to get there but it was definitely worth it. We arrived about 09:00 and the beaches were as good as empty, found ourselves a nice secluded spot on the third beach along (see photo). It appears it was a nudist and non-nudist beach, but that didn't really bother us.

No sun-shades or shelter, and we felt like we'd been sand blasted when we left, but it was great for the peace and quiet.

Definitely worth the journey to get there.

We visited this beach by boat as part of a tour. We spent over an hour enjoying the sandy beach and lovely blue clear waters. The experience of wading ashore from a boat made the beach feel secluded and enchanting more that it probably was! Overall a very pleasant experience.

on a island with most of the coast covered with lava, this beach is isolated and sandy. I would suggest to go thre only if you are close, otherwise this is just a common beach, also you need to pay to get there.
