  • It is worth visiting this region in summer, beautiful beach and with many restaurants. It has a boardwalk that allows walking, cycling, admiring the scenery.

  • After the season and despite not the best weather people was really quite a lot. Unfortunately, at every step suspicious types, and people trying to sell you something. Bracelet, beads, flowers no every moment someone offers you something. Some venues, however, quickly overrun such people along the amphibian. Lots of tourists as well as local people. On the sand, on a sun lounger or just on a walk. A lot of Rickshaws (rikszarzy transport) who offer rides in the beach or the surrounding area. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

  • For a walk or a stop at one of the bars and restaurants on the waterfront is worth it. Nothing extraordinary, but it sure deserves the visit.

  • Beautiful even during rainy day
  • Clean, calm and the sand doesn't stick in all places. I went pretty early in the morning to avoid the crowds. Warm water and public toilets all over.
  • Must see in Barcelona. Beautiful sandy beach with good bus connection. Only bad thing - almost every 5 minutes there was somebody trying to sell me beer, water, sangria, mochito...
  • Just beautiful. So many things to do on the beach including a great selection of restaurants. Must visit while in town.
  • Nice 🌎
