Overview of Playa Negra (Black Sand Beach)

The Black Sand Beach (Playa Negrita/Negra) coast is beautifully untamed. Areas on the island like Monte Pirata are volcanic and some of this amazing volcanic material is washed down through a quebrada during heavy rains which ends up at this beach on the island.

Finding the beach is difficult. There is a small entryway on Hwy 201, near the art gallery. Look for the small blue spray painted words 'Playa Negra'. The map above shows the location of the entrance. You will walk down a hill through a trail for about 10 minutes. It can fill up with water during rainy times, so bring your water shoes or sandals.

Once you get to the beach, head to your right, to get to the areas with the darkest sand.

"Once we finally found the entrance (couldn't find it on our first trip), it was awesome! Very cool sand, nice view of the water, neat cliffs, and very secluded. A must see!"

Vera H. wrote about Bubble Bay Spa:

"We stopped at the Bubble Bay Spa to have a picnic after snorkeling at Champagne Beach. Bubble Bay was a fantastic little natural hot pool. You get a great view of the bay & the mountains while you soak in the calm,warm waters. The water & the beach were very clean. I overheard other people talking about another hot pool farther up the mountain in Soufriere. But they said it was a bunch of cement pools that seemed dirty. I'm glad we went to the Bubble Bay Spa :D
