Montaña Amarilla Beach
Visiting Amarilla Beach means venturing into one of the Island's most unusual landscapes. You will marvel at the impossible shapes that the waves have carved into the yellow rocks on the mountain, which has been declared a Natural Monument because of its extraordinary beauty.
The waters here are so clear you will be sorry not to have a pair of goggles with you to do some snorkelling or even take a dive. You are likely to see groups of divers and clubs dipping under the waves here.
The beach is made of rocks and pebbles, but there is a spot very nearby that has been made into a sunbathing area with easy access to the shore down a set of steps.
You can get to the beach on foot from Ten-Bel or from the nearby residential estates, past the Marino and Amarilla Bay apartment blocks.
