A great contrast to Levante beach. Here there are fewer people and much less noise, but the same gloriously clean water and sand. Quite a slog from one end to the other, but well worth it. Our favourite bar, Massai, is about half an hour's walk from the Old Town, and has great views of the sea and landscape.

This beach is lovely and is well kept with the tractor going along the beaches at night comfortable sun loungers which we only once due the weather not being that warm and breezy.

The beach is cleaned daily, and you dont have over kill on the sun beds for hire. This beach is smaller and quieter than Levant's.

We went to this beach as it is the quieter of the two main beaches. Sun beds and parasols can be rented for €4.50 each for the day which is very reasonable. You also have several guys going along the beach selling drinks which are ice cold. The water was still cold but it was only April. The beach is... More

Nice soft sand with plenty of room for lots of people. Whether you want to sunbathe or play footie etc everyone can be fulfilled. Danny's bar along the front near the Ale Hop is a nice little place with free wifi and book exchange.

Nice and clean and benefits from being quieter than Levante Beach. Water sprays are available to wash the sand off your feet and there are sunbeds which are available for rent.

This beach is just as beautiful as Levante but not nearly so crowded. There are not so many shops and restaurants but the ones there are are very good. Well worth the effort of a little trip.

Equally nice as its sister beach Levante Beach with its clear blue waters but, there tends to be a lot more older Spanish folk. We love mid morning stroll along this beach and to grab a beer about lunch time on the way back up to old town.
