The drive to the beach was interesting along a dirt road. The car park was large and free. The beach was empty and the sea felt quite warm to the touch. The sand is a very dark colour so appears dirty, but the beach looked...More

The beach situated in the Cabo de gata national park, is a nice sandy beach. There are absolutely no facilities , not even a toilet or anywhere to but a drink. So come prepared, but its worth the drive out.

This was the best beach we found in Cabo de Gata NP. A long sandy beach backed by smallish sand dunes. You can drive here from San Jose. Or walk.
