Naturally formed when tide goes out, forms shallow pools that go on for miles., and right on the doorstep of Melia Gorriones., wonderful to wade through, and for children to play in (still observed of course)

if you can handle the wind and just check out the tide times. We (50kg and 86kg) used a range of kites from 3m to 12m over two weeks.

We went here having seen lovely photos but without checking the tide times. obviously you have to go when the tide is high and there is water in the lagoon. when we got there the tide was low which exposes a huge, spectaculat beach, busy with kite surfers but too windy to lie on and relax.
