unimprovely views. Good food, tyoical from "chiringuitos": espetos, rices, salads, and very well cooked fried fish. "Pescaito frito" típico. The Service wants to be very formal and aren't efficient. Bus are Kind Well balance quality-price

Overpriced and overrated. First my fish wasn't cooked through, so I had to send it back. When I finally ate it was so salty it was almost unbearable. The grilled prawns were ok but I had much better (for a cheaper price). Not very good...More

Fantastic place to people watch. Especially when the flamenco singing and guitar is on. Drinks are good. Watch for the splashes as the tide comes in.

There are two parking areas and you normally have to pay 1€ for it, they are on a plain facing El Balneario. As it's very frequented by people it's not hard to find a spot.
