Water a little on the cold side but the beach is amazing for a walk (as lots of people tend to do around there), some sunbathing or even a walk or jogging in the sidewalk!

This beach is a short bus ride from the city centre and is a beautiful sandy beach with restaurants and cafes and has plenty of amenities for those with kids.

It was very easy to get to via bus. It gets rather crowded but it is easy enough to just walk further in between the staircases or further in either direction of where the bus lets you off. I never felt it was SUPER crowded to the point of being annoyed. There were several food and beverage options. There is a little "food stand" to the left (when facing the beach), after the African market stalls, that has cheaper water (1 euro instead of 1.45) and ok snack options.

Upon first glance you notice AT ONCE you are not at the typical tourist resort. Nearly 2 Km of sandy beach surrounded by the Ocean are waiting for you to enjoy your time. But if you are not a friend of cold Ocean water, I would recommend you to try the various free swimming-pools you find along the promenade. You may also want to have a drink, a cup of coffee, paella at the relaxing restaurants or simply go for a walk. Come and do !!

Just spent an afternoon on this lovely beach. White sand, lovely promenade, free pools for children, lifeguards on duty at pools and beach, inexpensive beach-side eateries. Full of Spanish families either on beach or on the adjacent picnic/BBQ areas. Delightful. No British drunks, no unpleasant language or behaviour. Warm, clear sea. Delightful.
