If you have a difficulty with nudity, don't go there! Otherwise, do as many, walk along the beach, by the water, from Playa Inles (often with the wind from behind and not in your face) all the way to the lighthouse of Mas Palomas. Lots of spectacular dunes (heavy to walk in) of Sahara sand, transported here by the wind, yearly refilled on a natural basis! However, we don't like to swim here. Once lost a pair of glasses. Waves can be very forceful and dangerous so watch out. Often we end up at El Senador restaurant, near the lighthouse, but please read our (or other) Reviews first, because they have some service issues (perfect location and good food though).

Great sand and plenty of loungers when the wind is calm.
The dunes are spectacular but watch out for the nudist (predominantly male) who often wander away from their designated area!
