Nice secluded beach, far form everything. Rocky trail start from parking lot, so be prepared for a hike.

Nice quiet beach - in October anyway. Park at the top in the free car park rather the one at the other side of the road where you have to pay. It is a steep walk down - I think it said 350 m -...More

A beautiful pebble beach. Crystal clear water and gloriously warm. Big crashing waves that are great fun jumping!! Car park €4 for 24 hrs, then a good treck down a gravel/clay path, not suitable for Parma/buggies etc. Spent a fun filled afternoon here, no showers,...More

After 20 minutes hard climb down to the beach, noting that Spaniards all wore trainers which would have made the rocky descent easier, was disappointed with the sharp grittiness of the beach. Also red flag warned against swimming - the surf was up big time!...More

To get there is a bit of a hassle, first to find a parking spot and then to get to the beach itself - it's a 10-15 minute descent on rocky grounds. But it's absolutely worth it!!! To my surprise I was comfortable walking and...More

Fantastic beach. Waves were a bit strong the day we went but that added to the fun! Fine shingle is much nice, less messy and not as hot as sand! No facilities on the beach but cabin selling snacks and drinks in the car park!...More

This is a really busy beach in the summer months so even though the parking is arranged really well, it can get a little chaotic. The access path to the beach is an easy walk down but little more difficult on the way back up...More

Visited Playa de los Muertos with my girlfriend at the end of April when the sun had just started to flex it’s muscles. Drove to the area above the beach and parked our car in the designated parking area away from the beach. The walk...More

We arrived at the parking lot at about 09.30 and it started to get full, we paid 4 Euro for a full day and started walking towards the beach. There are two paths to go, one on the right leads to a viewpoint and then...More

The name of this beach, given the strenuous walk to and from, is apt! You must make sure you have adequate food and drink as there is none on the beach which may account for its clean state. I did see some plastic waste under...More

@Ninad B, I can confirm since my husband and I took the bus from Madrid to Carboneras and then caught a Taxi there and back for $12 each way. Make sure you arrange for the taxi to come pick you up at Playa de los muertos or... More
