Great beach, quiet as it was October, but very clean, waves enough to surf/swim in on, but calm enough for my 6 year old lad too. Amazing sand, beach cafe serves great coffees as well, and free parking, can't beat it!!

Beautiful beach. Good atmosphere. Cold water and strong winds during the summer, but only then is there room for a towel. If the water was hot, I guarantee it would be already destroyed with buildings and over-tourism. This beach has everything, caves, bays, white sand, crystal

Me and Becky visited here and although a nice beach it is nowhere near as nice as ingrina beach. Both suffer from parking issues however Zavala’s is more for surfers it seems

Adorei esta praia. I loved this beach. Praia super limpa. Super clean beach. Windy but very beautiful, ideal to relax!

This beach gently slopes to the sea, so when the tide is out, you can walk in for quite a way and still only be at knee height, so great for kids. There are parasols and sun beds, or rocks to sit on. The small car park soon gets busy. Clean soft sand.
