“Nice beach”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

Our villa was pretty much right next to the beach so we certainly spent plenty of time here. It is a very long beach with some stunning views, the beach restaurants are ok but very basic, cheap and cheerful food. We only suffered from the Levante wind on one day which did make the beach a no go for sunbathing and the kids, however on the other days the breeze made it feel much more bearable than some other places. The kids loved the seaweed but you do have to be mindful of getting your feet stuck in it, especially with the undercurrent. Very nice beach though

“Take a (long) walk”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

Wonderful Atlantic beach that stretches north for 7.25km from the causeway that separates it from the Mediterranean beach. Take time and just walk as far as you can and enjoy the huge views, the Atlantic rollers coming in, the kite surfers. Go for a swim and it is, surprisingly, not all that cold.

“Brilliant beach!!”

One of the most amazing Spanish beaches. Clear water, white sand, perfect for kitesurfing! Great for a swim as well!

“The place to launch your kite!”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

Kitesurf beach. Wonderful beach but gets real busy with kites so if you are not a kitesurfer take note.
There are designated areas where kites are not allowed to come on land so its safe for small kids in these areas. Make sure you dont let your small kids play in the kite zone as it can be very dangerous for them as the kite schools are busy there and people who learn make lots of mistakes so kites fall out of the sky and the kite lines can cut you badly.

“Kitesurfing hot spot”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

Busy with schools, you have to take a bit of a walk towards Tarifa before it gets quiet enough not to have beginners all over you, but the wind is there often and probably the hardest blowing place here for miles around. The boardwalk next to beachclub Agua has a compressor which saves you from pumping up a kite yourself!
