A lovely beach to walk along, which can be followed for miles to Morro Jable. New visitors just have to be aware that a lot of sunbathers discard all of their clothes.

We walked and drove to this beach and it is so clean and isolated. With the exception of the windsurfers there is nobody and the beach looks better than the Caribbean!

Probably the most amazing beach on the island, crystal clear water, turquoise sea, and miles of soft white sand. Very picturesque, clean and accessible.

probably the best beach of all. We reached it via off road track, but it was ok to do with a regular car and well worth it. water was very calm and crystal clear. Nudist friendly as for the rest rest of the island.

We want to keep this secret delight to ourselves. Long stretches of white sand with impressive views of sand dunes behind in some parts. Access to the beach at some points is interesting, on steep, dusty non-tarmac roads.

The best beach on the island! But you have to take a car to go there - very few hotels are there. This is a perfect place to kite surfing, windy weather.

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.
