Just getting to this cove can be a task and, in August 2016, there was a 'beach closed' sign there (looked like it had been there for years). Not surprising. The beach is difficult to get to and has limited space. It's rocky and has no services whatsoever. Unsuitable for kids. Great for snorkeling but you can do that any... More

A very difficult beach to get to and technically it is shut at the moment but the long walk is worth doing to experience the snorkelling and swimming. It's really lovely and idyllic. We couldn't believe it when we saw penguins! We'll definitely go again. I loved that it was mostly spanish locals too. A stony beach so take shoes... More

Amazing small beach beautiful views. This is a nudist beach however more people where clothed then naked so the choice is yours. Very out the way and quite a trek to get to with a bit of walking but definitely worth it.

Gorgeous, unspoiled beach which is well worth the trek it takes, to get to. The beach itself is pebbly, but there are rock outcrops on the South end of the beach which make for excellent sun-spots.

Clear turquoise water, beautiful scenery and some sand. But closed at the moment due to rockfalls. We went down anyway - a sheltered bay that is quite a trek to get to, and a big climb to get back to balcon al mar. We didn't see any rocks falling but evidence is all around that they do, so it wasn't... More

It was a nice beach, but not suitable for anybody over 50 due to the inaccessability. Beach was nice, with good crystal clear water and good for a bit of snorkelling! There was also a rock, which seemed popular with the locals jumping in off!

This is a very beautifull beach. It's a little bit reserve for naked people. The problem of this beach is the danger. I never go because sometimes very big rocks are falling down the cliff every year. Look from the top of the cliff, but never go down.
