This is a beach only accessible by car but at the end of the winding road you will find a nice beach off the beaten path. This rather small black sand beach has a small bar but no sunbeds or restrooms as it is a...More

It was the beach we were going to when in San Andres. Beautiful natural secluded black sand beach with relatively calm waters accessible by car only. Totally recommended to spend a day there and enjoy the ocean. Though in high season it might be difficult...More

A small, black sand beach at the end of a winding road. We arrived here expecting a naturist beach, but it is not. The beach was crowded on this weekday afternoon but only a few people at the far end were without bathing suits, all...More

I really recommend to visit that beach in the first part of the day as in the late afternoon sun is behind the mountain. Beach is not crowded probably because the only way to get there is by car. The sea is quite calm in...More

Gaviotas is directly exposed to...More

Very quiete and nice, black sand, free parking, nudism, waves for bodyboarding. Open minded people, here you have from family to gay couple and surfer, a big mix but very peaceful. No music, no bars, no food, if you plan to spend the day there...More
