Probably not the greatest beach in the word but 100x better than Brighton beach. Views are beautiful. Pebbly in some places and course sand/shelly sand in others. Good for fishing from the beach in the evenings, sea is calm but there are several outbreaks of...More

The beach is nice and clean, when there is wind and "bad" weather is amazing because it has really big tides and you can enjoy a lot. When it's calm nice place to dive and see fish and octopuses.

Lovely views across the bays, and the authority’s have built a great walkway almost to almost as far as Cabapino. This walkway can be enjoyed by everyone including those that need mobility scooters. A great way to enjoy the views and fresh air.

A very nice beach although limited with beds and no bar but there are bars close by. Really enjoyed our swim there and would go again.

Went snorkelling here. The beach is quite steep down to the water and the sea gets deep very quickly, so probably not ideal for younger children. It's a sand/shingle beach and the current is quite strong. There are lots of facilities on the beach. Bars/restaurants,...More

This beach it is one of the most pintoresque of Granada coast. The beach has llite stones and it makes the water very clear. The cliff at the end of the beach is impresive with ships and boat on the water.

The local authorities have built a wonderful walkway along the beach. This can be accessed from several places. Unfortunately not all dog owners are looking after what comes out of the rear end, so beware. Enjoy your walk,especially early in the morning.

A good regular restaurant AT THE beach with good fresh food. Some of the fish is fished at the beach by the employees during the day.
