Great beach

Looks really nice from the top of the hill and when you are down. A lot of water sports around so that means its really windy.

Even if you are not staying in the surrounding area if you have transport both Risco del Paso and Playa Barca are worth visiting....We always try and go when the tide is turning as the sight of the sandbars is just wonderful to see and it is lovely to walk through the water knee deep to get to the next...

It is a wide, immence beach with great sand! It was very windy unfortunately . There are no beach services on playa risco delbpado not even a toilet. On playa de la barca there is a nice bar inside the place for renting kitesurfing equipment with free internet. The beaches are suitable for kitesurfing and windsurfing, begginers mostly.

Strong winds but it's ok if you go in the dunes. Nice place to walk. Nice place to go swimming naked if you like. Nice spot for photos

The beach is great. Especially the southern end (Risco del Paso). Lagoon is amazing - warm water, plenty of fish and space.

Always looked enviously at the beach in this remote area. Didn't realise the wide beach flooded to knee depth so quickly.. However when it did the kite surfers descended and that was quite a spectacle. When tide out (most of the time you can walk for miles along a sandy beach which was clothing optional.

I loved this beach so much. Could even pass as one of my best ones. Well worth a view to see the lagoon which is every other week.
