  • One can clearly see this is one of the new spots in gran canaria and there is much up to it a little luxury as there is a portion of area resorts, so if you're into designer clothes then there's shopping district with Hugo boss and so on

  • Great beach. Very wide and long with sections for all tastes if sun bathers. The dunes give a special athmosphere that make the place different from all other beaches. It's not for snorkelers, the sand is thin making the water not that clear. The lack off rocks also nakes the place lacking of marine life. Overall is well worth a beach day.
  • A special beach to say the least very good and clean
  • Beautiful long, long beach.
  • New beds and umbrellas what would be especially significantly longer than currently available again. Otherwise is here a good mood with often nice views.
