Very poor quality beach in every respect. Very little "sand" just grey dirt/soil and hardcore/pebbles. Quite a disappointment if you are a beach lover.

Lovely long beach with many chiringuito to choose from. Sunbeds available at various prices depending on location along the beach. Lovely views towards Gibraltar and Ceuta. Perfect for all ages.

Lovely open beach with excellent promenade, where everyone and his dog walk especially early evening and Sunday lunch time. Loads of good restaurants and bars open all day.vSunday market. Plenty of beach chairs cheaper than neighbouring beaches and easy parking with easy access to beach
