Beautiful beach. Couldn’t fault it. Managed to get free parking close by and had dinner in one of the beach restaurants. Would definitely go back.

Photographs cannot do this beach justice. Long and clean, the area residents take recycling seriously as there are bins and bags along the beach. Plastic jugs along the boardwalk encourage the collection of plastic caps. We walk it each morning and often in the afternoon....More

White sand, long uninhabited beach with very few people to bother you. Walk for 5km without seeing another person. Shallow, warm sea, perfect for swimming. Idyllic. Don’t tell too many people about this beach...

We were travelling in our camper van. The Aire was full with German and French vans, it looked like they were there permanently as they had awnings and tables out etc. Which is not really allowed, as it is supposed to be just a stopover....More

Only had toastie and beers but friendly and polite staff. Seems popular with locals and gay couples. We think the owners are lesbians also - just a guess! Mick, Sue and Nommy Richards

A beach to avoid at least in August. Awfully crowded and almost impossible to enjoy a relaxed day on the Sun. Water Ok, but everything else was awful.

If you travel with children you won't regret! The beach is huge and the see very calm... Make sure you follow the plates regarding the sunshades and keep the beach clean!

This is probably the best beach I have been on. It is approx. 3 miles long and when the tide is out,it is vast. You could walk for miles and maybe meet a dozen people.When you look along the very clean smooth sand , yours...More

We have been here a few times and this beach is great. Not overcrowded at all and nice and clean. A few small places on the beach for drinks etc and a board walk too. Good bars and restaurants in Manta Rota.

Hi I went to Manta Rota about 10 years ago so it's more than likely changed a lot since then. As I recall there was no supermarket but there was a indoor market that used to sell fruit veg and fresh meat and fish... More
