The beaches are huge so you need not be sitting on top of other beach users. Sun beds and parasols available on beach for €7. Only downside was few toilets on the beach.

A nice sandy beach. Some exciting waves from the Atlantic. Lots of sun beds which seem to go quickly. The is a nudist area along the beach and a Gay area beyond that. Lots of bars and restaurants at reasonable prices.

Keep going past the dunes to the prize of the southern coast. Beautiful area makes you almost forget where you are with the sea on one side and the dunes on the other. Beautiful and remote with only being a couple blocks from the city.

The best sand dunes ever, and a lovely, spacious, clean beach. Regularly cleaned. Sun loungers can be hired.

The beach while not glamorous is clean and well maintained. We spent a lot of time at kiosk #7 the gay beach. There is a wonderfully convenient snack bar on the beach, run by some very friendly folks. The dunes are spectacular and reminded me of Lawrence of Arabia with actual camels walking by. We will definitely be coming back... More
