This beach is just fantastic. Miles n miles of golden sand and a lighthouse to boot. Be aware though that there are naturalists on the beach in case you are easily offended.

Big nice beach. If you like wind surfing is the place to be. There is a very well equipped wind surfing centre with friendly staff. No other facilities in the area in terms of food or drink, but you can grab a drink and a sandwich from the same centre.

Mile after mile of almost deserted golden beach. Great for kite surfing, wind surfing and sailing. Gently shelving and shallow. Lovely clean beach and sea.

Water/sea level change leaving "lake" for kids. Nice to walk and swim. We could leave bag and towels on the beach and swim & play hours.

This area has a beautiful beach and stunning lagoon when the tide is high enough to fill it. When I was there in Oct 16, there was a car crime problem next to the Melia Gorriones Hotel and the Kite Surf shop area. So don't park there in your hire car. Park in the next populated car park at Playa... More
