“Very beautiful beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

Nice beach location, clear sea, good atmosphere. Beach bar in close distance. Beach is not very close to the centre, but worth the walk. Public is mixed str8 and gay.

“Mainly nude, mainly fun.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

Main beach more mixed, families etc, with second area around rocks mainly gay. Nice soft sand, beds and parasols available and sun beds this year have padded covers also.
Very nice relaxed atmosphere, normally clear sea and clean beach.
Short walk from town past San Sebastián beach and the graveyard/church and ta-daa. Better than the more distant nude beach which is a real trek to be fair and is pebbles. (And very very cruisey)
Balmins also has an Ibizan style cafe/beach bar which is simple, relaxed and nicely done. Not cheap, but nice staff especially the hot tattoo'd guy with amazing teeth....

“Beautiful beach, a pleasant atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

Close to the center and who has no vehicle can reach this beach.
The cost of chairs and umbrellas a bit expensive but worth if you sit a few hours. You can buy drinks and food at place.
Apply two more nudist beaches on the other side of the city but requires vehicles and an easy walk

“Very blue and Very lovely beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

Very clear blue crystal like beach ,just you hear the voice of the sea, some beach rocks are sharp when you like to climb it and may hurt your bare feet so be careful otherwise it is best to enjoy the sandy beach .

“Perfect place for the all over tan”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

I've been coming here for several years and for me it offers everything. The opportunity to be naked in a relatively secluded spot that doesn't involve a long hike, and clean soft sand which shelves very gently so quite safe. The level of sand varies from one year to the next. This year, June 2013 it seems higher than usual, meaning there is more dry sand on which to place your towel.
