We saw this beach previously and Came back to this beach on a cloudy and windy day. The beach was quiet but was still beautiful and one we will return too. There is a shop and restaurant at the beach and some good parking facilities.

Nestled next to the busy main La Zenia beach, Cala Capitan is by far the best beach in the area. It does not get the hoards of people that the other beaches seem to attract and it even comes with its own little island. The...More

Not a long beach but quite wide. The beach bar is now open after the retendering & serves wraps, pizza, soft drinks, alcohol, ice cream etc throughout the day. The water is shallow for a distance & very clear. Parking isn't too easy unless arriving...More
