The best.

If you're sick of the terrible, over run hotels in Playa blanca. Then this beach is a welcome escape.

It's a pretty beach, but if you've been to a nice natural beach anywhere, you will not be impressed by it. (Beaches in northern Spain or in the northern Catalunya area are much more beautiful than this one). Dirt road for several kilometres to get to this beach, quite bumpy and rough on your car, €3 fee per car to... More

Beautiful location, stunning turquoise sea, lovely sandy beach and good quality facilities. We loved it and thought it was worth the small entrance fee for a visit to somewhere so unspoilt.

To get there you travel about 3 miles along a very bumpy track. We visited at 3.30 and found the car park was packed, circling for spaces. Fantastic views before you walk down the steps. The beach was lovely but very busy. Some good areas to do some snorkelling. Enjoyable visit.

The water is turquoise, the entrance to the parking is 3€ and then there's a little path to reach the beaches on foot.

since everybody said we have to go here, we did. First impression: if you charge us to get in, then please give us a road where there are not a few cars with damaged tires! The road is in a horrible condition, so please drive carefully. Second impression: too many people. I mean, it's nice, but there are nicer, hidden... More

Great beaches and great for snorkelling. 3 euros to get in, the road you travel down to get to the beaches will destroy your cars suspension, but worth it when you get there. BEWARE the restaurant on top of the cliff looks very inviting and has good views but is seriously overpriced and the food is pretty basic, (Ours was... More

Good and warm water, nice landscape, not so easy access to the beach - you must descend on the rocks -, not a lot of space in the sand for all the people.
