This is a great little beach to visit if you are on a sight seeing tour of the island. The black sand is surprising at first and photogenic. It is a sufficiently small beach that I would propose this beach as a good place for...More

Small beach in a picturesque cove. Shallow water, suitable for children. In view of the number of visitors to Los Gigantes it must be very crowded in hot weather.
