Güi Güi Beach


Güi Güi beach is one of the pearls of the island. Totally wild, with no civilization, the beautiful beach offers You an escape for the weekend.

You will have to walk at least two hours to get to the beach, so normally people go with an intention to sleep there. Near the beach you can find the drinkable water, so you would not need to carry it.

There are actually two beaches: Güi Güi Grande is the first one you get to and is only little (about 350 metres long). It’s big name comes from the size of the barranco rather than the beach.

Güi Güii Chico is just south of its little neighbour and is about 650 metres long. You reach it by walking along the rocks but be careful at high tide or when the sea is rough as it can inaccessible: You’re a long way from a lifeguard.

Nudists, hippy types and nature lovers make the five kilometre trek from Tasartico down to the beach for a few days of naked relaxation. It’s a tough hike but easy to follow: Uphill at first and then down into the steep barranco. The drop-offs are spectacular and vertigo isn’t an option. The walk takes about two hours one-way. Take plenty of water as hikers have died of dehydration in the area.

Beach Charactristics:
360 metres long
25 metres wide
Black-golden sand
Mild winds and waves.

The beaches are in the Reserva Especial Natural de Güi-Güi and are therefore protected by law. Technically you aren’t allowed to camp.
