El Charco Verde

La Palma

With boardwalks on the sands, this small black volcanic beach beyond Puerto Naos is a fun stop on the way to El Remo. Note the rock jutting into the sea, which is the site of a small shrine. There's parking at either end of the beach and a small kiosk on the sand, serving coffee, beer and tapas. Bus 24 (€2.40) runs here from from Los Llanos, travelling via Puerto Naos.
