Famous beach. Public entry, but quite large so it's not crowded. Nice and clean, with great water and easy walking into it.

The whole town is over run with German tourists who go around in large groups and are very intimidating and loud. This place is set up as a German hotspot from the restaurants to the hotels. Very dilapidated and old looking. Beaches nice and clean.

Wanna get stupid drunk go to El Arenal! There is one funny place to go to. It’s called Megapark. You have staff walking, running and dancing around in Lederhosen year round. So if you missed Octoberfest, go check out this place!

I loved this beach. The water is shallow and calm, even on a great distance from the shore. Also, it is very clean and there are many fish swimming around the people.

In 2018 it was hot but there are over 30 beaches and many children of all ages. Make sure you buy a few sun umbrellas for 10euro each

not sure about a young german party beach we never went out at night but we never had any noise or disturbance where we were, restaurants and tapas bars all do Spanish food.
