This is a great beach, water is warm, full of seaweed. The loungers are not cheap, €9 each and a cabana is €100 for the full day. If you go in the afternoon you'll get it for €70. We had a couple of great days....More

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
