Lovely visit to yet another fabulous beach here and really love all the palm trees and blue sea. Easy to find a place to rest and eat or have a drink. Would love to come back again sometime. Feels safe on my own too.

We went in June, we find the parking and had a good day ... you can have an umbrella and sites for 2 for 10 €. In June was too cold for a bath and waves were high

We drove along next to the beach which appears quite pebbly and very short of shade.The row of high rise apartment and hotel blocks did not endear us so we chose to drive onby.

This beach was a little gem....although a car ride down to the beach off the N340 Its well worth a visit.....The setting is majestic....the beach is not massive...but very pretty. Even in december it was a nice place to be with the sun out.

given that it's a naturist beach... I'm clearly not as broadminded as I thought. Our visit was marred by jellyfish, and the beach is not as pretty as El Cañuelo next door.
