This is a vast and clean beach ideally located for beachgoers. The beach is clean and the sea is clear and blue. We took a walk on the beach on a sunny day, Thursday, December 29th and the sun was shining and brisk wind was blowing from the south. Despite of this windy afternoon it was not chilly and we...

Well worth a visit you can walk for miles. Be aware there are a few naturists on the beach but it is allowed and discreet, Keep a look out for the chipmunks they are very friendly and curious.

It was unfortunately too windy so we couldn't enjoyed the sea as it was a red flag. The kids couldn't enjoyed as it was really too windy. Chair and parasol have to be lend every day... Otherwise it might be a very nice beach during summer time and with no wind...

Broad beach that goes on for many kilometres. It is mad of very fine sand, yellow and black, showing the island's volcanic origins. The beach is separated from the streets by a green protected zone, which is inhabited by the local chipmunks and bird species. Off season, it's a wonderful, calm place to enjoy! High season it looks as it's... More

Although windy beach the water temperature assures there's no need for towel :) The beach chairs are a bit expensive and unfortunatelly they're private which means that even if you're at a nice fancy hotel you'll still have to pay for this extra.

What more could you ask for in a beach?? This is a stunning blue flag beach with white sand and crystal clear turquoise water. There are plenty of shops and a beach bar nearby that serves cold beer and lovely food. Paradise.

This beach is covered with warm, soft sand. The water is cold at first, but you soon get use to it. The beach is ideal for children and families but there are naked men and lots of naked and topless women walking about and the wind is quite strong.

We have visited the jandia area on several occasions and always enjoy this streach of beach either for a walk or a day sun bathing although as said previously the sea can sometimes be on the rough side. Large parts are also mixed nude and clothed but every one seems to get on and enjoy the beach and sea when... More

Well worth a visit! We were staying at Las Gaviotas end of the beach so walked the full length into Morro Jable a few times. You can walk back along the red walkway and do some shopping if you don't want to do the beach both ways! Sea can be rough so beware..plenty of life guards stationed along but people... More
