good place to be but can get busy - some parts a bit rough underfoot, wear trainers or flipflops, lots of caffs and bars near by.

This area is busier than Las Americas (next door) and offers a few beach's with plenty of water sports and family friendly bathing and a fabulous coastal walk between the two !

This is a lovely beach, very clean water and lots to do such as water sports, shopping and bars. My only negative is the amount of people selling things.. but this happens on all beaches, we just found that el bobo beach was quieter.

I saw them in our hotel H10 Las Palmeras. I think they were 70 euro for the week. A lot of people were using them on the sea front. Hope this helps.
