Walked along this beach from Doña Lola Macdonalds resort. It was ok but some areas were like a building site, work being done near the apartments leading down to the sea and some of the rubbish lying around. It was January so it may be cleaner during the summer months. We could have walked all the way to the Cadopina harbour/beach which has nicer sand but as it was getting dark we didn't go that far. It would have taken about two hours to walk there and back, probably be ok in the summer months when lighter, then you could drink in the nice bars and walk back.
