The road to the black-sand beach, also known as Playa de Las Arenas, is totally unpaved but very narrow. The challenging track runs along the rock face and features an extreme risk of falling rocks.

Nestled in an unspoiled and isolated area, the road to the secluded beach is 1.5 km (0.93 miles) long starting from Av. El Llano, in the town of Valle Gran Rey (Valley of the Great King). It has become one of the nudist beaches of the island.
