Could not swim any day with raw sewerage floating up to shoreline. We had to pack up & leave as children wanted to get into sea .

Middle of town location so only takes minutes to get to . Even though it is not the largest of beaches it never gets to busy even in the high season.

Beach is in an ideal location as it is in the centre of town! Has a bit of a steep hill to walk back up from the beach itself, but well worth it as the sea is often calm and clear.

The beach is very small indeed and accessible by decending the Calle Salon from the Plaza Balcon de Europa. The location is nice, but there's not much to do here. Entrance is free, although you have to pay for a bed in summer.

This is a quiet beach but you are overlooked by tourists on the Balcon de Europa. A steep walk back to the Plaza and difficult if you are carrying all your beach stuff.

This is one of two town beaches you’ll see from Balcon de Europa as you look over into the clear waters below. Although the sand in this narrow sheltered cove is dark and unnatractive, it’s clean, with a gently shelving beach. At first impression you...More

We only went the once during our holiday and were unfortunate with the conditions as the sea was rather rough and there were lots of jelly fish so nobody was swimming. The sand is very coarse and rough on your feet. Some nice large rocks...More

Very nice beach but not a lot of facilities! If and I emphasise if you manage to get a Sunbed it should be €10 but for some reason I was charged €11. When I questioned this I was told there was a €1 charge for...More
