We discovered Playa Quemada by accident having walked along a coastal track from Puerto Calero (near the hotel Hesperia). Our first impression on walking into the village was that it was going to be a bit of a dump. Not at all! There are 4 restaurants - we have visited 2 - Pescador (on the shoreline) and 7 Islas (set back a little) both of whom are superb little restaurants which I have reviewed elsewhere. The first little beach is mainly stone and you'll only find locals here. The second much larger and sandier one can only be accessed by walking along the coastal track for a bit (you need to walk up the road and past a few houses to find the start of the track!) or when the tide is out. There are very few tourists on this beach, so a total plus for us. The sea is calm for safe swimming.
The village of Playa Quemada is definitely worth a visit. Its such a pity that we've watched many people arrive, park up and then drive away without even getting out of their cars or wander round for less than 5 minutes. We are not 'walkers', but the strole along the coastal path to Puerto Calero is lovely and takes about 30-40 mins each way. I wore my crocs so it is not necessary to wear proper walking shoes,although I did spend quite a lot of time getting stones out of my shoes! The walk the other way towards the nice beach and beyond is a little scarier and probably worth wearing something a bit more substantial. The views are gorgeous however. We loved watching the guys paragliding by.
