stunning beach with incredible sunsets, this is a wide sandy beach which stretches for miles, a wonderful place to stroll along and watch the birds, the sea is not suitable for swimming as it is unprotected and has serious undertows.

Beautiful beach in Las Lajas. Free parking along the beach. We did not run into too many bars/restuarants though.
