Sotavento Beach, Costa Calma

4.7
#1 of 15 in Things to do in Costa Calma
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.

  • long long beach crystal clear waters for walking or bathing days without wind, to practice winter sports the other day!

  • Family-friendliness is the motto here. More exhausting for family-free because the noise level is very high and the children running around nerves something, because the parents hardly cares what the offspring makes it ♀️ but you can well arrange. Modified dinner let times on the part of management e.g. remain from the stress at the buffet. The lowest category of rooms is Oke, where the mattresses may be like better. Otherwise it has everything outgoing. Cleanliness is also in order. Unfortunately very rich in chlorine water, also at the machines in the dining room. Also a pity that the offered food very meat and is rich in fish. As vegetarierer, the menu is very one-sided. Almost impossible as vegan. Unfortunately, was to address the staff also no separate meat-free eating cooked. No Wi-Fi in the room! Conclusion: For families the perfect accommodation. For others more recommended resources.
