Sandy beach, beautiful surroundings and, if you walk past the river even in the height of summer, it is never overcrowded

We stayed here in an apartment by the beach here out of season. If you enjoy long walks along a golden sand beach with few people about (the first day we only saw a handful of people) then this is the place to be out of season. However, if you enjoy all the services (restaurants, cafes, etc) then in season... More

Really lovely beach that goes on for miles. Less crowded than nearby costas and worth the extra hours drive from Marbella. Good places to eat and sun beds are plentiful. Nearby Tarifa has some great places to eat in the evenings. Car is essential.

Just make sure you get there before October, as it all shuts down and its very quite. Summer would be the only time to go.

This is a great beach that should not be missed. Five miles long with gorgeous sand and warm water. Quiet and beautiful. Was surprised that the beach was so nice. Much better than Malaga or Marbella.

Just the right amount of sun, sand, people watching. There are also some amenities on the beach like snacks and drinks available. It is also possible to rent a beach chair for the day at a reasonable price

This was our favorite beach on Costa de la Luz. Softer sand than some other places and not very crowded at all. The clear water was warm enough for plenty of swimming in early June. Another plus was a (relatively) clean and spacious bathroom! We didn't take advantage of the beach bars but there were several there.

The beach is fine sand and there were no beach beds! It was mostly families with brightly coloured umbrellas. There was La Luna Chiringuito which had their summer opening party, very popular and was open until the wee hours. There is a wooden promenade along the beach which went on for quite a way. The best thing was that you... More
