  • Beach berm:
    Black Shingle

    The beach is lined with unique volcanic black pebbles, that give the beach the name "black beach". They are soft and have a beautiful black color, but they do retain more heat energy than white sand, so you will see many bathers "hopping" their way from the sun bed to the water. It might be a good idea to have your flip flops handy so you don't feel like walking on fire every time you head for the water.

RATING SCALE

5 = the sea water was some the best for swimming. We would go way out of our way to swim there again
4 = sea water was excellent and inviting for swimming. We would go out of our way to swim there again
3 = very nice and clean sea. We would go swimming there again if we were in the area
2 = nice sea, we had a nice swim but we did not notice anything special about the water
1 = the sea water was not very inviting at the time we visited. We did more sunbathing than swimming
0 = the water did not seem suitable for swimming

Note that these are our simple (and unscientific) observations based on our subjective experience during our visit. We enjoy the water when it is crystal clear, and cool instead of warm. We don' like visible floating particles of any kind or algae settled on the beach.
