Cala del Cuervo, or Crow Cove in english, is a beach near the town of Las Negras, is 140 meters long and between 20 and 30 meters wide, with fine sand and a few rocks protruding. On the left side of the beach there more stones and the sand almost it disappears. At the entrance to the water there are rocks but soon disappear and the seabed near the beach is composed of sand.
The back of the cove is occupied by the Camping la Caleta in Las Negras, so although we have a pristine beach we also have all the camping services available, bar, ice cream, etc. If we go by car should take the road that goes to Camping at south of the Las Negras population, this road is less than half a kilometer long. We must park at the car park at the entrance of the campsite. In summer due to the influx of visitors to the beach and users of the campsite, the car park quickly fills up so it is not a bad option to park in Las Negras and go walking from the beach of Las Negras because there isn't more than 300 meters away, along a road bordering the sea.
On this beach starts the path of La Molata, a road along the sea that connects The Cuervo Cove with the beach of Playazo in the town of Rodalqular. It's a path 1.5 km long and medium difficulty that takes less than an hour enjoying the view. The route of the trail runs along a narrow coastal road on fossil dunes (oolites) yellowish white. These dunes have many cavities highlighting the natural pier Joya, a tongue of sea that penetrates the rock and whose seabed is crystal clear and turquoise, and the cave of the Doves, Cueva de las Palomas, formerly used for smuggling snuff, this cave it is accessible only from the sea.
The views from the beach are spectacular you can see the village of Las Negras, at the foreground the impressive Cerro Negro, Black Mountain, and behind him, the Cala San Pedro, San Pedro Cove. If the view from the beach are good but they are not less inside the water, as this beach has some spectacularly beautiful seabed, being ideal for snorkeling site. To the right of the cove it is enclosed by a natural wall which, with caution, can snorkel and observe a variety of marine fauna that inhabit the rocks.
