Pretty beach with lots of shells.very clean but fairly small - little bays to be away from the crowds accessed by the beach. umbrellas and sunbeds overpriced. reasonably priced beach bar with tables overlooking the beach where you can have snacks or a proper meal. A tuna sandwich with chips was 7 euros - beer 3.50.

We cycled here from old town albuferia maybe 8km away, but it was relatively easy lanscape, when we first arrived and looked in front and to the right of us, it was a crowded beach packed with tourists, but after walking along a walking route to the left we discovered small quiet beaches with wonderful rock formations and caves, on...

This is not near the Baia Grande Hotel and is down a dirt path and then onto an uneven path. Once you get there it really is a beautiful beach.BUT NOT EASY TO GET TO QUITE REMOTE.

Gorgeous beach but not a great deal of loungers to hire. Lovely restaurant at the edge of the beach. Pleasant walk from car park. Sand gets very hot to walk on and at certain times the shells being brought in by the tide make paddling a little painful. Really worth a visit as genuinely beautiful

This wee beach has it all. Great views, safe place for kids to plus and lifeguard on duty. The beachfront restaurant is super. Recommend the garlic lamb chops - a firm favourite with our crew on numerous repeat visits.

Last time we went to Coelha beach it was small and quite rocky. During the close season the authorities pumped millions of tons of sand from the sea bed to extend the beach. Think its a bad move!
