Pozo Negro Beach is located in the municipality of Antigua on Fuerteventura’s east coast and is easily accessible by car. It has one of the only cove’s that has not yet been affected by tourism; a true, untouched fishing village.
The bay is surrounded by numerous hills, which bring character to the landscape, and the black stony beaches are
pretty to look at, if not very comfortable to sit on, with only a few sandy areas. This is a semi-urban beach; the only buildings in the surrounding area are small, white houses belonging to local fishermen.
One of the last lava flows which occurred on Fuerteventura millions of years ago created this black beach, which stands in sharp contrast with the reddish nearby mountains. The magma tongue extending out to sea is still clearly visible.
Pozo Negro beach is protected from the strong winds that can often batter Fuerteventura, although swimming can be difficult due to the waves. Pozo Negro is well-liked by lovers of the local cuisine thanks to the presence of a couple of restaurants known for their exotic fish and seafood dishes.
