Beautiful non windy beach

Nice beach, non windy and fresh fish and sangria at the Areola beach bar. Sunloungers available. Costa Calma lives up to it's name!

One of the best beaches in the whole world - we found it was a tad marred by being nudist . . .but so beautiful.

One of the best beaches I have ever been to, it was quite windy but the view was spectacular - perfect for walks and strolls. Water was very clean but very cold maybe better to visit during the summer months if you want to go in for a swim. Otherwise I would stick to the swimming pool.

This beach is totally unbelieveable, it is shallow, relatively safe (keep children and non swimmers close if the tide is coming in) and simply beautiful

Miles of soft flat sand, very few people once you get away from the access areas. No facilities ( just the sea and dunes) take some water. Drop the clothes and swimsuits and enjoy real freedom in a quite beautiful area, just walk along, or lie in the dunes, your choice, which ever way you want P.S. I am one... More

Perfect for walking, running or just laying down and relax. Amazing scenario: dunes and cristal clear water. During the low season (January: 24 celsius degrees!!!) it is possible to be totally by yourself since the beach is enourmous.

Spent a wonderful 10 days exploring this beautiful beach. Very quiet and the sea was just wonderful to swim in. It goes on for miles and miles, even on a hot weekend there was plenty of empty space to relax and enjoy the scenery. There was not much wind while we were there, but even when there was it was...

This beach is just stunning!!! Make sure you go after the tide is high so you can see all the lagoons that form near the Hotel Gorriones. It is an extraordinary beach to just walk from one side to the other (9km) as it only has three accesses the bits in the middle are stunning and isolated. It is also... More
