Been spending time here since 2009. Love the place. Carabassi beach is fantastic. Nothing not to love about it. The Blue Monkey is very reasonably priced and the sea is perfect. Nice walk in either direction to los arenals or along past the exhibitionists/nudists.

This is a lovely beach, with sand upon entering the sea. You can walk out a long way and still feel safe. A wooden walkway is an added bonus in making it accessible. Depending on the season, you will find beach loungers, cabana's and bars....More

We spent a full day from relatively early morning through until just before sunset on the beach and had a wonderful day. The beach, which is a bit of a walk to get to from the road, is excellent once you get there. Good size,...More

The beach is natural, maintained with sand dunes and the local council. There are jelly fish nets out to protect swimmers during the summer. There are cafes on the beach during the summer and a water sports point most of the year. The Board walk...More

Lovely beach, great for every one. Narrow beach with very gentle slope to the sea. Quite busy but plenty of room for every one. A bit of a walk from the road but made easier by the wooden walk ways. There is a section to...More
