As far as town beaches go this is quite good. I would say that it is worth going to the far end (at the end of the Port pensinsula) because it is quieter and the sand seems better quality somehow.

The sea front is very pleasant out of season. There are some chiringuitos but between one and the other you can see the sea without actually walking on the sand. There is plenty of space for cyclists and pedestrians and some people were running. We...More
