  • The area I love, very quiet in winter and in summer crowded too. The beach is beautiful, wide and with views to the mountain and gibraltar (and the dozens of ships waiting to enter the port). It has spacious parking areas, ideal for caravans, although in summer are scarce. The downside is the lack of shops, to buy you have to take the car if or if.

  • Being a beach located in an industrial area, the water sometimes can not this all natural or clean that one would like... but in any case often not as dirty as what they say some comments. The beach has its parking, its view of the rock, its services, restaurants and rest, on the other hand sometimes tend to find small groups of young and not so young with a somewhat annoying attitudes.
