  • Very beautiful and quiet beach. Very clean, golden sand and good places to eat. Sun loungers can be rented for a good price. Wind rose at the end of the day and it was very uncomfortable for the sand, addition beach is filled with sports teams who go there to train.

  • Gorgeous beautiful yellow gold and to quiet the Playa with a fine sandy beach. Clear blue sea water and it takes so many Palm trees, since no umbrella. The panorama over the rock was sensational. Children with this beach is ideal, the water is not deep. We go again very happy there.
