“Small sandy beach with fresh water springs only visible at low tide”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Good to see the old men mending their nets and hanging around their handful of small boats. But too many touristy shops and cafe/bars....the whole road down to the beach is very overdeveloped with too many restaurants hotels and apartments for what is only a small beach 200-300 metres long

“Olhos de Agua Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

Lovely sandy beach and little sandy coves to be found after just a short walk either over the rocks at low tide or over the cliffs.Lots of lovely little bars to sit and watch the world go by and enjoy a drink or light lunch
No traffic allowed down by the beach (apart from deliveries etc) so safe and quiet !

Small, quiet (in November, December, January & March to my personal knowledge) and really relaxing little beach. Worth the walk down threr.
