Smart area by the Faro, then tatty shops on beach front before you get to the dunes. The nicest area is at the tip rounding the corner to Playa del Inglés (PDI).

Parking - turn left just before the bus station near the Faro for a garage or drive a little further on for free on street parking.

It is a very long walk (but worth doing) and will take >1hr. Nudist area is not very private, with hoards of people walking to and from PDI.

relaxing, clean and not too crowded in August. Would go back and enjoyed the local restaurants and cafes nearby. Friendly people in the area and felt safe

We went to this beach as part of an excursion. Found the beach to be lovely and plenty of shops and cafes around too.

We were disappointed with our trip to this beach. It was very rocky, which made it hard to enjoy just hanging out in the water. We were staying near this beach and would have liked to return each day, but we opted to check out other (sandier) beaches on the island instead. In the future, we would stay near a different beach.
