Lovely setting no facilities do take sandwiches and a drink. Just about paddled when we were there as bit breezy suggest drive rather than walk down the dirt track 2.5k from Genoveses beach.

A gorgeous beach reminding of the beautiful sands of perranporth on Cornwall’s coastline but with fantastic sunshine & swimmable waters in November.

Fantastic beach and totally secluded. Very quiet this time of year and on occasions there was less than 4-5 people on this small beach.

A lovely sandy beach split by a large lump of volcanic rock this is a place worth visiting. The walk from San Jose takes 3hours and goes through spectacular volcanic rocks and formation. There is also a car park within a short walk.

A beautiful beach well worth the bumpy drive from San Jose. Park a little further down the row on parking to shorten your walk!
