Definitely worth the journey down a bumpy track and very small entrance fee. We went to the end car park and then headed left, it is actually the naturist beach but that wasn't a problem hardly anyone was completely naked!!, but it was very quite and had great waves, we went back twice. There is minimal cover so take a... More

Great beach (as are all beaches around) for swimming and family fun or just to relax. However be there in the morning otherwise it is hard to park a car close to the place and also there is a lot of people then (especially during the weekends). There is almost no shade so bring something to cover yourself if you... More

There are five main and signposted beaches located east of Playa Blanca. These beautiful beaches are mainly without services; are not overcrowded; and consist of stretches of fine golden sand separated by cliffs. There is a road which leads to car parks close to the beaches. Access to the service road costs 3 Euros. However, the service road is in... More

Sand from the Sahara. Try to explain it to idiots who don't believe such things. It's not the Grand Canyon, but you probably will spend longer here just to enjoy. After all, how long does one gaze politely at the afore said canyon before yawning and going for a burger.

The first time we went to this beach it was FULL of people. We were all squeezed. The second and third times it was pretty empty as there had been an invasion of jellyfish... They are awful indeed, but we really appreciated the beach and we had a bath in the beautiful sea with a little caution. To access to... More

A little difficult to reach from the car park - as there is no path, as such down to the beach. It was very crowded on the bank holiday weekend, nonetheless it is a beautiful cove with golden sand and safe water for swimming. Cost €3 per car to enter the National Park and the roads are very rough with... More
