It´s a marvelous beach with white sand and not to much people. Almost a familiar beach. The same persons every year and a good place to walk in and out the water

Very nice beach. I prefer other places at this coast but playa del Vao is not bad although it is a bit crowded specially in August.

Not walking distance, you could get there quickly by taxi though. Not sure if there are direct buses.
