We have never been on such a well maintained beach...no litter, no yobs, just lots of local Spanish people enjoying the beach and the sea.

Beatiful day at the beach. Whether you like watersports (surfing, paddel, scuba diving, snorkling) or not,the beach has something for everyone's taste.

Probably one of the best city beaches in the world. Beautiful waters where you can see plenty of fishes, clean sands and plenty of restaurants on the promedade. Not to miss if you visit this fantastic island.

Very busy on the beach, be warned sand can get very hot. Hired a sunbed and parasol for €7.50, well worth the money.

Gorgeous sandy beach! Even though the sky is often somewhat cloudy, the beach is lovely. There is always a nice breeze and the water is great. Swimming out to the reef at low tide is a treat.
