Gorgeous beach, blue seas, swimming was bliss. Busy and windy, which we expected and had no problem with. Only small issue was the stones, the cost of sunbeds, which we chose to avoid and how far you had to go to get a drink of anything. All around are all inclusive, so had a bit of a trek for water....

Nice beach but wear sandals if you want to go in the sea. Plenty of room to sunbathe and you can hire sun beds with parasol. A bit expensive for sun beds if you want them every day.

Huge sandy beach so no way is it in any way busy. Superb windsurfing at Risco del Paso. Plent of shelterd spots for the sun worshipper at the top of the beach.

A lovely clean beach with rocky surroundings and glistening waters. Although cheeky on the prices for sun loungers and umbrellas. Most people using the beach chose to sit on the sand instead.

Amazing crystal clear water, white sand, really calm and quiet place to be. It's really long and you could take a walk in the evening which is so romantic.

The beach area perfect. Very windy. Perfect for windsurfing. It is very famous and very good for walking, jogging. DO NOT forget cap or tracksuit with a hood. Believe me it is extremely windy but it is worth to go there and take a look. Do not forget camera, photo camera and binoculars

We travelled down by car to Sotavento Beach and were not disappointed. The tide was out and the lagoon was all but dry but that did not stop us from enjoying a lovely spot at the back of the beach which we more or less had to ourselves. Just a short distance drive along the beach is a Kite boarding... More

absolutely beatiful and full natural wonder. GREAT, GREAT, GREAT!!!! Nothing else can be said and I hope I can return there soon. The play of high tide / low tide is great and full of fun. To enjoy this was one big joy. Never will forget this beauty of nature.
