Playa de las Conchas is one of the volcanic Canary Island located in the Atlantic Ocean just off the west coast of Morocco. This part of the Canary archipelago has spectacular landscape with a great geoheritage diversity. The lonely beach, a 90-minute hike from the ferry landing site, has golden sand and turquoise water that supports a rich and varied marine biodiversity. Because of its steep entry into the Atlantic and strong undertow, the beach is unsafe for swimming. Playa de las Conchas, called “mussel beach”, is surrounded by the reddish-brown foothills of the Montana Bermeja volcano.
