It's very vast beach, which becomes a lagoon with high tides. It's in the middle of a wild landscape (not considering the Melia Gorriones Hotel) and it's easy to spot families of squirrels at the border of it. Windy beach with offshore wind, excellent for kite boarders and windsurfers

Magnificent, empty beach. Great for walking. Surf a bit heavy for oldies to swim but wonderful to walk through.

This is a beautiful beach with miles of golden sands, set against a wild landscape. There are loads of kite surfers and windsurfers which are great to watch. We only visited for a day, and the only problem was finding a safe spot to go for a dip without fear of being run over! I'd definitely go back here, and... More

This is one of the best beaches we have been too, I was about a mile south from the hotels, no bars, just kite surfers, dunes and sand banks.
