In our opinion this wasn't the best beach on the island, but it's decent, clean and tidy (or at least it was when we went!) The sand is dark volcanic sand, but soft and clean. This beach is quite rocky, especially compared to some other beaches on the island - but this is fine if you are careful. The sea is slightly rougher than some other beaches too, so again, be careful. We saw people parasailing and out on boats though, so I imagine it's good for watersports. Good to visit if in the area, but I personally wouldn't make the trip to visit again above somewhere like Amadores or Puerto de Mogan.

Ok beach but when the wind blows beware of the undercurrent which is tricky at times. Restauranrs close by and bars.

Outside Anfi this is the good public beach, well maintained with rescue guards on service. The sand is volcanic dark but pleasant. The surf can be tough and clear rip tides on both sides so parents beware of their children's play. Sun beds and parasols can be rented. Restaurants in the back.
We never saw the beach crowded.

Spent a considerable amount of time keeping fit by walking from playa de patalavaca to Anfi. The views are stunning.

Great holiday location. Nice for walking around, swimming in the sea, lots of water activities possible. Surrounded by restaurants and ice creamstands and some shopping.
They could improve on the placement of their beachvolleyball court... where quite a big rock is placed under the sand. So an enthousiastic dive for the ball could end in a more severe injury. And so I witnessed.

But apart from that, everything about this place is great.
