Been going to this lovely bay for several years,it's safe with shallow usually calm water.Returned there today and was charged €7.50 for a sunbed at the Havana chiringuito, they were €4 last October.We were told it's under new management now. This is a shame as it's a popular spot and their food was superb. I hope they've not shot themselves... More

This beach is lovely, soft sand and stunning views. The area becomes a proper holiday scene in busy times and a wonderful peaceful retreat out of season. There are chiringuitos offering food and drinks with one open most of the year.

Located close to Estepona Harbor (Puerto Deportive) Playa Cristo is ideal for a day on a small beach with places for food and drinks.

Easily the best place we've found on the CdS if you're a novice paddleboarder. Lovely sand, clear, shallow waters and not much of a current at any time that we've tried it. The adjacent car park is a bit of a nightmare being a one way entrance and severely rutted exit but other than that, it is just too good... More

A very well maintained and clean beach with lots of attraction along the full length of it. Lots of interesting activity stalls and beach cafes and restaurants.

Dirty and dogs poo around in there while kids play in sand. We went there as we have gotten this place recommended and have seen some great pictures but it was nothing alike.

We were staying only 5 mins walk away from this beach. If you want peace, quiet and fab beach bar, then this the beach for you. Lovely sand (great for young children because it made brilliant sand castles), clean and two sun beds and umbrella for total €6 per day. If you want water sports, boats etc then Porto Cristo...
