Nice beach - good people and polite service from "Hamacas" supervisor . A delight to lay on the beach below an umbrella and enjoy the sun. 2 beds+umbrella = 9 EUR. Enjoy and have fun!

Nothing for anyone to do in this resort not even any safe walks, goto Playa del Ingles or Puerto Rico!

Excellent, and well kept beach that was not too busy. But be warned, the sand gets very hot. Lovely clean and fairly warm waters.

Really nice little beach. Not to busy. Nice views. Sunloungers and parasols for rent for small amount of money. Some restaurants and cafes near by.

Lovely little town with beautiful beaches, restaurants and a few shops. We walked along the front all the way down to Maspalomas. One word of warning is the bus stop is slippy if wet.

The beach is ok, dark sand makes it look a bit like you've gone mud wrestling which is not a winning look on me. There's a nice path that leads along presumably all the way to masapalomas but we never got that far. Quite a...More

It is a mix of golden Saharan sand and black volcanic sand. I personally think it looks nice, it is however very very hot when dry and in full sun so I would recommend sandals

Buenas tardes: estamos pensando en ir a San Agustín la primera quincena de julio. Suele estar muy abarrotada en esas fechas? He leído que en junio hacía viendo, es así todo el año o en julio estará mas calmada? Muchas gracias de antemano.
