The bay of Pozo Negro is an ideal place to experience a typical small fishing village. Here you can enjoy the idyllic scenery, take a trip on a pedal boat and watch the fishermen at work. You are equally well placed here if you long for the taste of freshly cooked fish served up at two typical local restaurants at the beach. Swimming is also possible at Pozo Negro, but there are not the usual amenities for a varied day at the beach.
Pozo Negro - Culinary delights at a black gravel beachThe sleepy fishing village of Pozo Negro and the beach with the same name is situated approximately 20 minutes by car from Caleta de Fuste. The route to Pozo Negro leads through wide gorges and ends in a small, remote bay which is surrounded by a sparse, hilly landscape. Pozo Negro means “black well” and looking at the beach covered with dark gravel, this seems to be a very appropriate name. Next to the beach is a row of several small white houses which give a hint of the flair of a Greek island.
Swimming at Pozo Negro is possible, but is not the main attraction. Instead there are two small restaurants which offer their guests a very special culinary experience. Here you can enjoy the combination of fresh fish, delicious food typical of the Canary Islands and the atmospheric sea noise. Also, when taking a trip here on a pedal board and watching the local fishermen at work, it is easy to see this as a dream world.
