Black Sand / Arena Negra

Since the Canary Islands are of volcanic origin, a lot of the beaches (especially the western islands) have black sand. After a sunny day, it gets really hot which makes it very difficult to walk on the sand. The kids, however, love it and it feels good to get your feet in the cold water after running across the beach.

Como las Islas Canarias son de origen volcánico, muchas de sus playas (sobre todo la de las islas occidentales) son de arena negra. Después de un día de sol, se calienta mucho y se hace difícil caminar por la arena. A los niños, sin embargo, les encanta y qué gustazo da meter los pies en el agua fría después de correr por la playa.
