“A nice secluded spot shelter from the wind”

A nice beach away from the hussle of the main beach's.
A little walk but not too far, there were no sunbeds at this time of year but plenty of space

“What Fun!!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Love that it is in a little cove, with rock overhang and crashing surf just down the way. Can be crowded in the heat of summer. Love that all shapes and sizes go there. The area of the beach further away from the stairway down tends to be more be gay-evident than those beaches closer to the stairs and showers, so some folks will be happier not to venture far - we delight in diversity and nudity, so find it a great way to fill the afternoon wherever we throw our blanket. Water is clear, turquoise, shallow. Sand is kept quite clean but can be storm swept. Hostal Bonanza is at the top of the hill and great for Gazpacho and cheap menu lunch. A good walk from town, a bit far from our place to haul a big picnic.

“Crowded but ok”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

A short, easy and pleasant walk from the town. Even in October it could be very crowded with very little space between your towel and the next person. However, this makes meeting people easier!

“Paradise 5 minutes from town”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

A lovely small beach only a quck walk from the town centre. Room for all tastes, families, homosexuals, heteroxeuals, ... Great bar in the summer and lovely restaurant just above. The water is normally very clean and you can walk/swim to a neibourghing small cove. Best time to go is early on sunny mornings as you normally have the whole beach to yourself.
