great place to take a walk and take some pictures. Need to wear shoes and you need sun creme (it can be hot!).

Unfortunately got caught up in the winter pride, saws sights I never thought I would see, All the members of the village people were there, the cowboy, the biker, the native Indian,construction worker and the the athlete, what a bunch of t@ssers.

Feel like you are in the Sahara. But you are actually right at the beach. We took a beautiful stroll for 2 hours and the walked back at the beach.

Perfect weather during November month, hot about 26-30 degrees, but no humidity, Absolutely gorgeous beach you can walk for miles to Playa del Ingles, passing nudist and Gay area. Many people walking with or without clothes along the beach. The ocean water is rather cool but very nice and refreshing. The sand dunes could be really hot in the afternoon.... More

If you went to the German beach party on the nudist beach I need say no more 😉 Though the sunbeds vanished before we got there and we were there for 8 o'clock still after a few beers it didn't matter. Next year I'm choosing an amazing costume thinking Rio carnival ha ha ha
