The black sand beach in Puerto Naos with night-time scuba diving
The black sand from the Puerto Naos beach is volcanic but has light green hues due to the presence of olivine crystals. The beach offers a pleasant coastal path protected by palm trees offering shade to bathers and connecting visitors to various restaurants and outdoor terraces where they can enjoy local cuisine. Due to its closeness to hotels and apartments it has excellent levels of access for those with reduced mobility. As night falls it is a superb spot for night-time scuba diving and discovering the sea bed of La Palma in a very different way.
