Beach was very quiet in November. Long promenade you can walk along and lots of bars and restaurants for coffee or a cerveza and tapas.

Just to let everyone know that the inflatable "water park" located in the sea at this beach is absolutely awful. It may look ok from the shore but once you get out to it you will soon realise you have been conned. The inflatable obstacles...More

This is a long sandy gently shelving beach with breakwaters - views of the working fishing harbour and to the back is the promenade lined with tapas bars etc

We walked the beautiful promenade in the early evening and were impressed. Very clean and well used by families. The beach was a little empty due to the time of day, but from our boat it looked very impressive the next day.

Great beach with plenty of space shame about the port which is industrial but if ignored it’s the perfect place clean and tidy all round

More of a Spanish town than nearby Mojacar with its more international population, Garrucha beach is great for families, especially the section behindo the breakwater. The harbour is often very interesting too. H

Can anyone help we are thinking of going to Garrucha in Sept 2006 and would like to know if the sea is safe for children to swim in. No website mention the sea but the pictures always show quite rough seas. Many thanks

Garrucha is a fishing port with a beach which is kept clean. In September you will probably only have lifeguards on duty at the weekends, but this shouldn't be a problem as there is a small bay enclosed by the harbour where you get several large boats docking per week which doesn't get too rough. There's a playground on the beach, too. There are some excellent seafood restaurants along the promenade. The sea on the coastline & beach towards Mojacar can get very rough, it seems to get...More
