  • good waves to swim or surf, sand is not too dark, the bar/restaurant nearby has very high prices (the fish Alfonsin was at 20€ while in a small restaurant , I paid 12€)

  • One of my favourite beaches for a good walk. One km long from parking to cliffs. Great surfing beach, but strong currents so be careful and adhere to life guard warnings. Great facilities (toilets, showers, beach bar in summer, surf gear hire.
  • Overall a great beach, some overzealous lifeguards prevented what would have been a perfect trip. If I want to die in the sea then it should be my choice, this isn’t communist Sweden. Good sand though
