Love this little beach. It may be small but for me it's a lovely spot to eat my packed lunch listening to the sound of the sea. Lifeguard on duty. I recommend it!

If you are living or on holiday in the Puerto Santiago area, then this is a very convenient little beach It doesn't have much to offer, but if you like swimming in the sea, then this is ideal. There are also some metal steps on...More
