Sotavento Beach, Costa Calma

Beach Nature / Park
Steady winds attract kite surfers and windsurfers to the wide stretch of golden sand at Sotavento Beach. The winds blow strongly enough to deter many beachgoers looking for a relaxing afternoon though small dunes covered in vegetation do provide shelter. The 5-km (3.1-mi) beach has two sections, Playa Risco del Paso and Playa Barca, though there is no major difference between them. Nudists do frequent these beaches, mostly to the far ends of the sand.
