This beautiful beach is long enough to escape the hotels and built up areas, stacked up side by side behind the beach and if you walk towards Morro Jable you are left with wonderful sand dunes as the backdrop. People can swim here as it is not rough with very soft sand. A lot of people here enjoy naturism and... More

Nice lagune, filled with tide sea water. The water in the lagune is calm, even in strong wind. The lagune is shallow and is used for windsurf beginners lessons and some kiting.

This beach is massive, so it can be accessed by many different point. The beach in golden sand with clear blue waters, part of it it is reserved to windsurfers, part to kite surfer. It is very popular, but due to its size, you can always find a quiet spot and enjoy all the kites in the sky!
