we spent a whole day at this idyllic place-swimming and having one of the best pizzas at the AsinoBeach. This is a volcanic island; so the sand is black.

Clean water, perfect bay, well-kept and isolated beach. Definitively the best beach on the island and - and one of the very best in the archipelago! And on top of all this, a great little restaurant with fast and attentive service. We will be back!

It is so pretty. The black sand and the small beach is worth a visit. I love the scenery and the sea is lovely. The cliffs are interesting. Amanda

The scooter ride to the beach was great and the steep track down to the beach was totally worth it. The black vulcano sand is beautiful and the beach is so peaceful and quiet. Highly recommend.

Black sparkling Sands, crystal clear waters and breath taking views both landward and seaward. A very nice spot for a snorkel. Take sun cream and water.
