Playa de la Nea - Black swimming bay with a fitness trackPlaya de la Nea is a cosy swimming bay situated directly next to the village of Radazul Bajo in the east of Tenerife. You can already get a good overview of the beach from the car park above it. Next to the car park is a nicely landscaped fitness track which also has plenty of things for the kids to play and climb on. A wide walkway leads down to Playa de la Nea, where the beach mainly consists of black sand, with only occasional pieces of gravel and small stones.
The bay is well protected from the waves thanks to a large wave-breaker. The steep cliff in the background offers shelter from the offshore winds, but in spite of this fairly strong winds quite often come from the sea into the bay. You will find mainly locals on the beach rather than tourists. Especially at the weekend and in the holidays the beach is frequented by local families and young people.
