There are about 5 different beaches here. The only issue is you have to travel quite a bit on a bumpy long track to reach them. The beaches here are lovely though. The beach bar is great to sit and have a drink watching the sun set. Good prices as well.

Good place to appear there in the morning however nothing to do during the day while seeing a lot of people roasting on the sand. Didn't like that several women (of different ages) decide to walk back and forth topless. The road to this place is paid (3 euro per car) and is tough for car suspension, probably will be... More

Lovely beach made up of coves, 15 min walk from papaya to hotel over sand ash and rocks. Worth it, driving to it is down a dirt track with a toll payable, take your time doing that.

Driving here from Playa Blanca we took the planned exit off the roundabout and the road suddenly turned into a dirt track. A tad bumpy we followed it for a while til we got to a gatekeeper where we paid 3 Euro's to enter. Coming to a large car park with a bar on top of the cliff overlooking the... More

Definitely worth hiring a car a visiting both of these small sandy bays with the crystal clear sea and golden sand. Far nicer than the Town beaches in Playa Blanca with warm sea, decent restaurants and amazing views.

Okay, so if you have a 4x4 then some good fun may be had driving to these beaches !! The dirt tracks do add charm and excitement, and can also easily be driven by a normal car. The are no facilities for these beaches but the sand, water and views are excellent. South facing and we were told lower sea... More

Surprised by the barrier with 3 € per car to access to the beach (and some others). Wild road to access.

After the long rally on a beaten track we finally got to park the car. From the the view looks good but once on the beach the colours were not so good. Lots of rocks, no clear water. Maybe I've been to Sardinia too many times and my expectations are too high now. We went on the other side of... More

This beach was a mission to drive to through the pot holes in the dirt road. But, at the end, the beach was fantastic. Clear water and a nice sun trap. You have to pay 3 Euros to drive down the road. The car will be covered in a fine sand at the end but we used a hire car.... More
