Such a long sandy beach with a gradual slope into the sea. Loads of beach restaurants and kiosks all along with the old town set back in the middle. Loads of options for sunbeds and several water sports places.

We walk along here every time we are in this part of Spain, and go to a couple of restaurants and a favourite Chiringuito. Always good vibe, good food and good music with a full Spanish experience. You need to go and enjoy it.
