Our 2nd favourite after Mónsul
Oct 2021
We only went here once during our October fortnight in SE Spain, because we found the gorgeous Playa Mónsul first. Genovese is not as striking but it is closer to San José (so you can walk) but we drove along the dirt road. But it is a lovely long crescent of a beach and has the best golden sand, not sticky and gradually sloping into crystal clear sea which still felt 24C in mid October.

Stunning beach

This is one of the many beautiful beaches around this coastline. Highly recommended, no facilities available which you should bear in mind, stunning views and so clean.

Beautiful beach that takes its name from an historical event.Are you an early bird ? Them you'll be lucky enouth to find parking space before lunch.The place is wonderful and you may have the chance to see a sheppard walking nearby with his goats !! Don't forget to take all you need for the stay,there are no services available,that means a 15 minutes walk with your belongings (food & drinks) towels sun umbrella...but it's worth the effort.

Chill out with two dogs
Sep 2019
I visited this beach as I had seen a review that said it does not get many waves. Last Tuesday, 10/09 it was windy and all the beaches with the Cabo de Gata Nature Park had many waves, so I gambled a 30 minute drive and sure enough, this playa was calm as a duck pond. Dogs are allowed so we made our way to the shoreline and set up camp. The water was crystal clear and so so warm, far warmer than the western Costa del Sol where I had come from. Fabulous place. Will visit again when not as windy!

Amazing beach!
Aug 2019 • Couples
This is one of the best places I've ever visited. The water is crystal clear, so many beautiful fishes swimming around and amazing landscape. Oasis paradise. However, I believe people SHOULD READ about this beach before visiting as this IS a nudist beach indeed. We have been going to Playa de los Genoveses for many years now and year after year we find tourists being surprised (and sometimes mad) that people are walking around naked. This IS officially a nudist beach and has been for a very long time. It's understandable that tourism will increase in such a beautiful place and, therefore, unaware people will find themselves in a tough spot, but making nudists feel uncomfortable for being nude in a place it's completely legal to be nude is ridiculous. There are certainly thousand other'normal' beaches out there; don't ruin the only nudists ones we have left. Either learn to live with it, or don't go.

Disappointed
Aug 2019 • Solo
I didn't like it at all!!! The hike was too hot. The beach was full of people, children screaming, youngsters putting music on out loud. The water was too cold and the air too hot at the same time. Quite a lot of flys so i couldn't read from moving so much and bees too that come every time u take out something to eat. The wind kept swiping of my umbrella. I came excited and left 4 hour earlier than had in mind, and many people kept leaving. also it's officially not a nudistic beach but too many people walk around naked, especialy men. While i was trying to eat i found it a bit discusting.had better time in the city beach thou.

Popular beach with plenty of room
Jul 2019 • Family
Parking fills up fast in summer even on a Monday. We were able to park at the Chiringuito for EUR5 at about 11am. The beach is huge with plenty of room for everyone.Clean and calm water which is shallow for a long way out.

A beautiful clean beach with clean clear safe shallow water
Not commercialised , no bars or shops nor beds umbrellas etc
So take all you need with u it’s only a short walk from the free car park
The road access from San Jose is a gravel track for about 2 km

Beautiful hike from San José
Dec 2018
The hike from San José to this beach, and we continued on to Monsul, was breathtaking! We parked just outside the park limits and picnicked on the beach.
