  • This beach is far from the area of highest contamination of the estuary and its views are excellent. It is a pretty collection area suitable for children. The sand is the best in the area. It has an own dune system.

  • The beaches near the town of my favorites. Services, child, Green Park and arena. Nudist beach on the side which is always great if you forget the bikini or if you want to have no marks. Great arenal and clean, without algae and crystal clear waters.
