This small cove and beach is just before entrance to Peninsula de la Magdalena and almost joins with Playa del Sardinero to its left. The beach derives its name from the rock “camel” which you can make out at certain times of the tide -...More

pleasant little beach famous for its Camel shaped rock, perhaps bets viewed from the sea (on one of the boat trips available). We visited in the autumn, when the beach was emptier.

This beach is between the Palace Magdalena and the main Sendinero beach. Saw some couples playing handball. Rocky coastline with plenty of sand. I would say a spill over from Sendinero.

Nice secluded beach, but with easy access, next to the entrance to the Magdalena peninsula. We saw many people sunbathing, other playing ball. The sand is soft and clean.
