This beach is between the Palace Magdalena and the main Sendinero beach. Saw some couples playing handball. Rocky coastline with plenty of sand. I would say a spill over from Sendinero.

Nice secluded beach, but with easy access, next to the entrance to the Magdalena peninsula. We saw many people sunbathing, other playing ball. The sand is soft and clean.
