“We love it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

It depends what you look for in a beach. Clean sand, safe swimming, lovely views, shelter from the wind - yes it has all these. It has a great beach bar down one end which is quite a track from the other end and there are porta loos there as well. There are no ice cream sellers, no loud music and you can't surf here but that's all you can do on the other beaches so that isn't a problem. The only draw back we have discovered after twenty years of coming here is that it is on the cloudy side of the island o is occasionally wreathed on cloud cover when the rest of the island is sweltering.

“sandy beaches with amazingly clean water”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

lovely beach a bit remote but that's the appeal I suppose. Great rock pools for kids to look in. Beach bar expensive, so bring a lunch.

“great spot for swimming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

We stopped at the Azzarro restaurant just north of El Cotillo - the beach here is a sheltered lagoon so the waters are calm and perfect for swimming. Its a beautiful beach with a beach bar/restaurant. Can get very windy here though so take a beach shelter or parasol and take refuge in the stone wind breaks

“Very good beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

The lagoon on the way out to the lighthouse is great, no music, just waves. It can be a bit windy, and there are a lot of nudists, so if that offends you, best to stay away. However, the bay is wonderful for swimming, and the beach has a quiet friendly atmosphere. All the times we have been there were plenty of other families around, it feels fairly safe to go for a swim and leave your stuff on the sand.

“Peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

Lovely little coves if you go out of town slightly. Can be a bit windy but plenty of shelters on the beach. Heavenly!
