“Tiny and filthy”
Review of El Palmar Beach

El Palmar Beach
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Maybe we were at the wrong spot but we found the public beach to be very tiny and there was a lot of trash. The sea was too rough for swimming, maybe alright for surfing tough.

We saw some other beaches here wich looked better but they were private hotel beaches wich we couldn't access.

My kids played in the black sand (it gets hot though) and swam as though there were no rocks at all. We enjoyed El Palmar a lot and the surfing for us beginners was great.

Great beach, amazing black sand. The food was pretty good but didn't blow us away.

the beach is nice and quiet, and you can get some good surfing, at both high and low tide, and in between. Sometimes you can have the beach all to yourself. Bring your own food - the restaurants charge and arm and a leg for average food. Vegetarian options are limited to salad.
