This beach is one of the least visited and most wild in Agaete, it is located halfway between Guayedra and El Risco, you must park on the road and walk about 20 to 30 minutes.

It is advisable to go exclusively at low tide because otherwise we will not be able to enter or leave the beach, it is a place that is not supervised and that can be dangerous due to landslides and waves. Be careful.

    Very nice remote beach with black sand and quite big waves. Rating could vary from 5 during the summer to 1 during the winter. + you will be probably alone here, maybe with couple of other people + wild black sandy beach with big waves + quite good access during low tide and plenty of nature waterpools + some big colourful crabs here - when it is not low tide, acces along slippery rocks - possibility of land/rock slide - inaccessible during high tide (+/- 2h around high tide). It means you can be trapped here for approximate 4 hours, depending on waves - Almost no sun during winter. Think could be ok from March to September. In November, sun was almost always behind big rock. Looks like the sun never shines here before noon.

    Attention! Two cars got their windows smashed, probably because they left things in the backseat. There was more glass on the ground so this probably happens more often. Otherwise nice spot but visit when the tide is low.

    Very nice and very dangerous beach. We arrived at 12pm. According to the forecast the high tide was going to come at 5pm. We enjoyed the beach but around 2pm noticed that the water level was higher than before. We headed back and realized that a part of the "path" already gone and the waves was getting even wilder than before. One big wave out of the blue hit us hard. It pushed my Wife and she fall down on the rocks getting injuries. I jumped after her and grabbed her so the waves can't drag her into the deep. So if you go there be very careful and keep eyes on the falling rocks as well, there is a busy lorry traffic going on on the road (far above your head) and it keep causing resonance among the rocks ! We loved the place, it is like a mini paradise but won't go back as it is extremely dangerous !

    We couldn't get down to the beach as such, access is very dangerous, you can't get there on foot if the tide is not low and even then it is dangerous. But despite that, the views are well worth it.
