We loved this beach :-) Closed to our hotel, shops......etc, and even if it was sand beach mixed with stones, so it was sometimes painful to go to the water...but our daughter enjoyed it, so did we :-D and it wasn't crowded :-)

far too busy for me, despite being end of season the beach was packed out and too many random traders trying to sell you things or get you into their eating place

Great sandy beach with official Croix Roja De Espana Lifeguard on duty. Lots of bars and restaurants and a few shops on the Promenade, all excellent and a great location. Lots of children in the water, so I guess it is as safe as anywhere....More

Very good beach, and lots of places to eat. A tip is to use the toilets in the shopping area rather than pay for them!

It’s about a 15 mins walk along the promenade from the El Faro lighthouse. Clean and nice beach with a touch of volcanic. A number of shops and cafe bars along the front. And a great place to watch the sunset.

Great selection of restaurants and great location as they are all directly on the beach. Slightly more expensive area than some others. We are at a restaurant called The House and it was great. Not that many bars for after you have eaten if you...More
