  • Having been here a week, we elected this beach as the best of those visit to Playa Blanca for a variety of reasons, including proximity, the cleaning done by volunteers, protection from wind and calm seas caused by moles of protection. Clean water with many fish. A place for our towels, we've always found. There are few Italians, unlike Fuerteventura.

  • Love this beach. The water is so calm. The fish swim around you, the sand is soft, there are sun loungers and parasols €8 per day. The sea was chilly to start with but was bliss to swim in, even in March! Two good sized supermarket shops and a few restaurants (didn't eat there but) who very kindly accept people using their toilets. Beach promenade walk is a bit bumpy and needs resurfacing but generally ok. Bar at one end of beach for ice cream, drink, food and alcohol. Absolutely stunning.
  • Safe, clean beach with calm water thanks to the breakwaters. Family friendly with facilities nearby. Nice place to relax after a tour of the island's volcanic interior - what a contrast!
  • Amazing beach with what looks like man made coastal defences to create a delightful little cove. Great for children and adults to go swimming. The water is super clear and you can see various fishes floating around. Probably the best beach in the playa blanca area.
  • A picturesque lagoon shaped beach with clean sand and a good spot for families. Several bars and restaurants back onto the beach. There are sunbeds and parasols are for hire (€12 per day for two loungers and a parasol)
  • Great place to visit has lots of shops but the beach is a little odd as its made with massive concrete barriers to form the cove so doesn't look great but good for snorkeling, for gluten free food you just need to go to supermarket really as I didn't really ask but everyone is quite good on gluten free food here! Has lots of beach stuff in shop and great coffee and ice cream!! The sunbeds you can hire are €6 for as long as you want.
