The beach of Las Negras is located in the town of the same name. This beach is very characteristic for the large amount of dark stones scattered across the sand. The beach has a length of 850 meters, it's in the center of town and has all kinds of services like, vigilant lifeguards, catering, accommodation, tourism activities. The beach is easily accessible, we can park the car in a concourse near of beach and access is enabled for disabled people.
Surrounded by hills on either side, stands the Cerro Negro (Black Mountain), in the east of the beach, with its dark stone cliffs are a perfect example of the volcanic origin of this park. The beach as I said is full of black and colored stones, so it is not ideal for swimmers seeking only fine sand, but in return offers a crystal clear sea full of fish, it is a truly wonderful place for snorkeling.
Part of the beach is shared with small fishing boats of local people who are stranded during the day and at the evening they will get back to fish. Nearby is Cala San Pedro Beach, a cove completely isolated, it is reached only by sea or after 2 hours walking through the forest. There is a hippie community that lives in the cove and it is not uncommon to see boats or canoes of the inhabitants of the colony who come to Las Negras for supplies or other services.
South of this beach there is the Cala del Cuervo beach. To get there we have to take the detour there on the road before entering the village of Las Negras, Rambla del Cuervo and camping, direction. From the parking area you go down 100 meters down the ravine to reach the beach. On the way to the cove and from the sand of the beach there is a lovely view of the village of Las Negras and Cerro Negro.
