La playa de los Guis is a small, black sand beach. It's ideal to go there and enjoy the views of Los Gigantes cliffs.

Small and calm beach just 5 min walk from the marina. Not for swimming, but great to see and watch the waves and Los Gigantes. Kids love jumping over the waves. Black sand, of course

A lovely little beach, however it is black sand, and usually always orange or red flagged as the waves are big and dangerous. Meaning little swimming. Also, with the surroundings of big and beautiful cliffs, there is only sun on this beach from 2pm-4.30pm.

This is a great little beach to visit if you are on a sight seeing tour of the island. The black sand is surprising at first and photogenic. It is a sufficiently small beach that I would propose this beach as a good place for...More

Small beach in a picturesque cove. Shallow water, suitable for children. In view of the number of visitors to Los Gigantes it must be very crowded in hot weather.

This is a small black sand beach, however it has rocks on entry so be sure to wear appropriate shoes. Geat view of the Los Gigantes and lots of terraces around.

People should be aware that the beach at Los Gigantes is closed. Heartbreaking to see families with little kids with their buckets and spades, trundling back along the path after they find the beach closed. No mention of this in the brochures!!
