“River Mersey is cleaner!”
Review of Del Cristo Beach

Del Cristo Beach
Reviewed 13 August 2018 via mobile

On Trip Advisors score rating this beach comes out top for Estepona. So we packed ourselves off, a family of 13 in total and we're hugely disappointed.
The breach was littered with rubbish and very packed out.
The sea was disgusting. Brown with scum on the top. No turquoise water here.
I wish when others write reviews that they were more honest.
Watch out also for the Spanish guy at the car park exit for pedestrians into the Marina area, he's stopping all tourists and charging them 2 euros per car when the parking is free
We won't be going back here.

Good sand for the kids to make sand castles. My 2 year old was able to swim without arm bands because the water was shallow enough for him to stand up in close to the shore. Shower facilities were good. 2 beach bars - we chose to eat in Havana which was enjoyable and had a good kids menu. Only downside was there wasn’t much of a breeze and there were jellyfish! Luckily people seemed to quickly scoop them out of the water and keep them as their beach pets for the day.

We have been here time and time again this holiday. The best and safest for young children by far. They have a cove which gives a pooled area for children to play in. Lifeguards, beach bars (one not open yet) sun beds to hire €15 for two with parasol. The beach bar at far side is great, the staff at brilliant and speak quite a lot of English too. Loads of parking next to the beach. They have decent showers, toilet facilities and even some adapted kit for wheel chair users to enjoy the beach too! It’s starts to fill up with people about 11am midweek. X

Del Cristo playa is vel protected by a stone barrier. Shallow water and sand floor makes it perfect for children. The beach it self is very nice, only sand, no stones. It is very popular, whit locals and tourists alike, but even when it looks crowded, you can always find a place.The parking are is huge, no problem to find parking.
