It's a nice beach to visit because is different from the others but not to spend the entire day. Not hard to get to and just a 5/7 min walk from the parking to the sand.

One of a kind. The red colors of the rocks and the sea infron make a unique landscale. You feel the wrath of the volcano that burned everything and the beaty that left

If you have mobility issues, you may have a hard time seeing the beach from above also. It was a walk out to it on uneven pathways.

its just 5-10 mins walk down the hill. You can definately do it with sandals or flip flops but you will be more confortable with sneekers.
