Black sand beaches in the canary islands

The other day we talked about some black sand beaches around the world. As we have seen that you liked them a lot, we thought it would be a good idea to tell you about the beaches of this type that can be found within our borders. There are many beautiful beaches in Spain and, of course, they have little to envy to those in the rest of the world.

Without a doubt, the best known beaches are to be found in the Canary Islands. When you travel to Tenerife, for example, you will find beaches that impress with their dark tonality. As with the rest of the black sand beaches, this is due to their volcanic origin. Among the best known are Playa del Pato, Arenal, Las Gaviotas, Playa del Duque, Varadero and El Medano.
Although in Fuerteventura you can mostly enjoy white or blond sand beaches, it is not very difficult to find beaches with black sand of volcanic origin. This island is one of the largest in the Canary archipelago and can boast one of the best coasts in the whole of the Canary Islands.

In Gran Canaria you can also find all kinds of beaches, including black sand beaches. In fact, it is known as “the miniature continent” for its wide variety of landscapes and routes. On the other hand, the small island of La Gomera has incredible beaches where you can enjoy swimming. Like almost all the beaches of the Canary Islands, it also has black sand. Of course, in Lanzarote you can enjoy a lot of places to swim. In the north, you can opt for beaches with fine black sand. They are a bit windy, so they tend to be more secluded.

If you want to enjoy beautiful black sand beaches, you don’t have to go far. If you’re in the Canary Islands you can enjoy these incredible landscapes, so make sure you find a cheap trip!
