This is very popular with Spanish visitors and no wonder. Plenty of chiringuitos with sunbeds around 4 euros per person on a weekday (as of 2018). Parking across the road..recommended.

Weather was poor when we ventured down. Looks like a nice quiet beach, few bars and restaurants. Sun beds for hire, parasols to hire and think you could spend a day here no problem. Supermarket just up the road.

Great stretch of beach with cafes and bars although many closed in December. Seems to be maintained with the daily cleaning even in the off season.
