A sandy beach just North of the church popular with straight & gay travellers. Relaxed atmosphere, lots of people watching, clothes "optional". Beach bar and parasol hire are ridiculouslyexpensive, take your own!

Playa Balmins is split into three bays - the first two are largely contiguous - the first is where you'll find the bar/shack and the masseuses. The second is largely male and nudist but no-one objects if you want to keep your kit on - or you are female. These two areas have sun beds and umbrellas though the area... More

Gays, nudists, families, locals and tourists, you can meet them all here. Small beach with all amenities. Little dixie loo, showers, wooden bar for drinks and sandwiches. They even offer professional massages and sunbeds. Very clean water, most of the time. Only downside: very cramped on weekends, July and August plus reclining sand line. Meaning the lower part of the... More

I used to go to Ribeira beach but some of my friends regularly used Balmins so I thought I would try it. It's a 15 minute walk up the hill from San Sebastián beach. It's worth the walk as it's a chilled out beach. There are two coves. The first beach has a cafe selling sandwiches and beer etc. this... More

Two small bays tucked just under the Melia hotel and right by the marina. The first part has a cafe and portaloo. This part of the beach tends to fill up with families. A little further on, the more secluded bay is pretty much men-only and mostly nudist.

Great beach for relaxing and swimming only a short walk from the Melia hotel or the town center. The water is warm and shallow. Plenty of sun loungers for hire. Attracts a great mixed crowd of friendly guys and families.

And no one is bothered. A fabulous, mixed nude beach which is suitable for everyone. A short walk from the town it is well with the effort. Strip off or don't no one minds.
