Wonderful spot to see hundreds of happy dogs playing in the surf with their owners standing by actually speaking to one another like humans, not on their phones!

We visited in November 2016 with air temperatures of 9 degrees and people were swimming in the sea. There is a walk way... More

It reminds me of the beaches Paya el Sardinero in Santander and Playa La Concha in San Sebastian or even Copacabana in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil. But, this beach... More

Beautiful large beach close to both the old town and the town centre. Very popular with locals and tourists alike, and a great spot to stroll for an hour or so.

Worth strolling along and taking in the view and smelling the Atlantic. Water was a little cold in September, but a nice memory.

We had the good fortune to arrive in glorious sunshine and warmth. The locals flocked to the beaches to swim, surf and sunbathe. The plaza leads to a paved walking path around the coast to great overlooks extending some 5000 meters.
