As always impressive beach! A natural spot in the otherwise thundered Spanish Mediterranean coast. Worth a visit.

Fantastic beach. A 3 km drive down an unfinished road. Plenty of parking off season (we visited in late May/early June). Stunning scenery. Very deep beach. Lovely sand based sea. Make the effort to walk around to the second beach - less exposed to wind.

Lovely setting no facilities do take sandwiches and a drink. Just about paddled when we were there as bit breezy suggest drive rather than walk down the dirt track 2.5k from Genoveses beach.

A gorgeous beach reminding of the beautiful sands of perranporth on Cornwall’s coastline but with fantastic sunshine & swimmable waters in November.

Fantastic beach and totally secluded. Very quiet this time of year and on occasions there was less than 4-5 people on this small beach.

A lovely sandy beach split by a large lump of volcanic rock this is a place worth visiting. The walk from San Jose takes 3hours and goes through spectacular volcanic rocks and formation. There is also a car park within a short walk.

Drove down the gravel road (not as bad as some other reviews make out) to the car park. We arrived around 7pm to watch the sun set and didn't have to pay parking but had to circle the car park a couple of times to...More

The walk took only about twenty to thirty minutes - about 2 kilometres from western end of St Jose.
