|Beach type:||Urban beach, Black sand|
Located in the town with the same name, Las Gaviotas beach is charming and well worth a visit if you have a rental car and want to explore more of the north. It’s easy to get to Las Gaviotas from Santa Cruz and you can drive all the way to the beach, although there are not many parking spaces.
Playa de Las Gaviotas is 200 m long, with dark volcanic sand and is sheltered by a tall massif that helps protect it from wind.
Las Gaviotas is recognized as a nudist beach, so don’t act too surprised when you arrive here. However, this beach is pretty isolated and away from the big tourist resorts, so the occupancy is usually low, especially during winter months. There are no facilities or restaurants close by, so if you want to spend some time here you should bring your own food.
Best time to visit is during low tide, so you enjoy the whole beauty of the place. Also, keep in mind the fact that because of its location and the tall mountain behind it, the sun disappears around 5 or 6 PM, so make sure to visit while the sun is still out.
