  • This beach is the widest in Colonia. There's a beach bar during the summer season, but beware of local thieves. Do not go here after dark, or even dusk.

  • There is a beach although the water is very muddy and a fairly run down walkway. It could be so much better than it is but worth a walk.

  • Very nice little beach only minutes away from the town by car. There is an unofficial nudist (and gay friendly) side to it which is separate and secluded from the main beach and is very nice. If you get there early, you can get the shade of the big tree otherwise bring your umbrella. The water is lovely and shallow to refresh when you get too hot in the sun. On the main beach, there is a parador for supplies and that side is much bigger with loads of space if the nudist beach gets too busy.
  • Beautiful colony beach super quiet quite windy. Ideal for having some mates in winter or summer. Super clean sand. It is easily reached.
  • We are a place to go with the family. Impressive beach cleanliness, respect and responsibility of all who attend. The water is very clean with an important sandy area. Ideal for those who want to enjoy the water and sun completely in tranquility. Greetings
  • Very nice beach, with its old pier still on it.
  • We live in Colonia Ferrando beach was always the best... but be careful not to be alone although now there is perfect custody... a van is going with food and drinks to spend time very cheaply
