Tip: don't park in the parking area if you don't like walking. A few hundred meters down the road there is free parking to put your car. Nice view but rocky beach and with shadow until 12:30 approx in the morning.

We left the car at the parking at the cost of 1 euro and walked to the beach. It's about 5 to 10 minutes walk through a country road and at the end it has some stairs to get to the beach. The beach itself is hard to get to and not practical for families with young children or people... More

Described in the Lonely Planet guide book as one of the best beaches in Spain. OK it's a nice rocky bay with wooded hills behind, but surely there are loads of little bays like this along the Spanish coast. I think visitors need to be aware that the 'beach' is a narrow strip of pebbles and that the sea isn't... More

I cannot begin to describe my experience here. My partner and I headed to Playa del Silencio about 8pm, to be able to have some time exploring before settling back up on the hill to watch the sunset. Maybe we were lucky, but we were the only ones on this tranquil beach and we couldnt have been more happy. I... More

I don't know if I have the words to describe this place! It's really amazing! I love it and definitely recommend it to view! The view is wonderful! You have the green surroundings, huge rocks getting out of the blue ocean and white waves break out onto the beach and the rocks. It's really impressive!

One of many gorgeous beaches along this coast but Silencio has been "exploited". This beach was a beach you'd go to & could have a nap & not have people sitting on top of you but suddenly it's the place to be & is chocablock of tourists.

We have been here many times to walk, picnic and occasionally swim but the best time is at sunset. You look out over a bay filled with jagged tall rocks and with fading light, and swirling mist it feels like you have been transported to the set of Lord of the Rings. Walk a little further on from the main... More

This is a beautiful pebble beach reached by driving down a narrow rough concrete road, parking then heading for on foot down a rough track then a great stone staircase to a semicircular beach with nothing but the sound of the waves and the pebbles rolling in the backwash. Absolutely gorgeous

A nice easy walk down. Get here early as not many spots to park. Not sandy, large stones. Very quiet location and nice drive in and out..

Although you need a car to arrive (and walk a little bit more), it is a wonderful spot that worth the exercice. We were practically alone and the natural sound of waves going back into the ocean, while touching the stones beach... it resulted in a sound that I never heard in my life. Great for relaxing, meditating, enjoying...
