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!"

Kay J. wrote about Guisi Lighthouse :

"It takes about 40 minute tricycle ride to this 18th century Spanish lighthouse from Alibihod Crossing. The dusty road can be challenging, but it is definitely worth the trip. Climbing the now dilapidated, rusty, not well preserved lighthouse can be very dangerous. Those who dare can marvel at the breathtaking view of Nueva Valencia and the surrounding beaches. I would not recommend taking the risk though. The lighthouse does not look strong enough to hold weight and it could collapse anytime.
