“You must see it”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

No comprise. You must see it through the whole day. According to the tide the beach become an impressionable laguna with the water deep just 30 to 50 cm.
The beach, by its own, it's not particular, but the entire beach with the lagoon is spectacular.
If you're not residing nearby consult before the tide calendar to get the best moments from the increasing tide to the maximum level.

“Most beautiful beach in Jandia”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

This beach amazed me, it was like stepping onto a carribean beach. It was surrounded by sandy mountains and high dunes of white sands. The sea is bright blue and washes over the beach on high tide leaving you to walk between settled water to one side, with blue sea on the other as you walk along a platform of beautiful white sand. There was a lot of windsurfing activity going on and it does get windy, but the locals have build guards of stones which you can lay behind and be protected from the winds and being sand blasted. I loved this place!

“Fantastic unspoilt beach - great for windsurfing”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

This beach is remote from the main town of Jandia and is flanked by large sand dunes and natural vegetation . It is popular with naturists [ who seem to use the only one end ] and wind surfers. It has lovely sand and is very clean and not too busy. There is one surf shack where you can buy drinks. if you like the more natural/remote beach - this is the ace for you.

“Its like Heaven.......”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

I have been to many beaches and i can safely say that this is one of the most beautiful that i have ever seen. On the Jandia Peninsula, you can walk forever across shallow pools and see straight to the bottom for miles. Perfect for kids to splash around. Parts of the beach are very quiet and no one around for as far as the eye can see. Move down to the Costa Calma region where there are some hotels and beach bars and the water is still beautiful and we had a great time jumping the waves! Its a nice change from Corralejo and El Cotillo (which are both also beautiful). Id recommend seeing all if possible! But, this one was my supreme favorite.
