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

We visited at the end of July in peak season but the beach was never too crowded. It was always possible to walk a little ways and find a secluded spot. The water was warm and beautiful . In the morning you could walk all the way to the big rock without seing another soul. Very peaceful. On the weekend... More

You can walk for miles on firm sand with few other people about other than a few placid cows (local retinto breed) on the beach
