Clean sandy beach. Spectacular view on Penon de Ifach rock. Bring chairs and shadow umbrellas with you, cause it cost money. Parking available close to the beach. Enjoy!!!

Great for a stroll and if you want a beach day, clean sand and plenty of room. Lots of bars on the prom to choose from.

Absolutely beautiful beach, immaculately clean with ample sun beds to rent for €5 each. Plenty of restaurants and shops along the front to stop for a shop and something to eat. Can't wait to go back!
