There was nothing that stood out about this beach. My family was ready to leave within 30 minutes of arriving.

Good family beach with recently improved facilities including showers and toilets and access to the Calahonda to La Cala beach Boardwalk. Various decent bars and restaurants catering for a range of tastes and budgets. Good swimming in parts and well located off the A7 at the entrance to Riviera Del Sol

We walked down the beach turned around and went back to the pool at the hotel. It was simply not inviting, even the walk in, it was dirty and felt like we took a back way in but seamed to be the only way in. Very disappointed.

Over the last 12 years I've lost count of the number of hours we have spent on this beach. Crusty bread, jamon Serrano, large packet of crisps and some cold cans of San Miguel life does not get much better than this.

Just stayed briefly to compare to other beaches. Easy walk from accommodations in Citio de Calahonda. Too rocky for swimming but lovely if you're just hanging out on the beach.

The actual beach is o.k with a mixture of course sand, stones and rocks. There are no facilities, except for a few loungers provided by the local council and the usual dustbins. Toilets are in the next cove, a few minutes walk away. The sea is cold and entrance in is full of stones/rocks, so don't forget your beach shoes... More

Lovely beach area, one of the best along the strip with some decent beach bars and now a boardwalk that takes you to the lovely town of L Cala or almost to the pretty port of Cabo Pino. This is a lovely walk and you can get the bus back every 30 minutes for just ov.er a euro.
