The Playa de San Agustin is really great if you want to relax: It's not so full as for instance the Playa de Maspalomas, but still charming. Go there if you want to have a nice swim in the waves, get a beach lounger and...More

We enjoyed the place between the stones where the water is without to hard waves. Good for kids ! Between the stones you could see some geckos and some cool birds- enjoy ! Btw there are showers and toilets available 👍

We visited in june and this beach was usually quiet. Lovely for a paddle and a stroll in the evening, no crowds or noise. If you follow the beach all around you will arrive in playa de ingles but it it is a long walk....More

Small beach, sun beds and parasols available. Good walkway all around which takes you to Playa de Ingles. Lifeguards on duty on beach. Couple of care bars on route. Can be quite steep inclines at some points.

This beach is one of the windier ones. Maspalomas beach is better, purto rico beach better yet. Dark sand.

Great place clean tidy about 15/20 minutes walk to playa Del ingles If you walk along the beach further in another 4/4.5 hours you'll end up in Maspalomas beach watch out for all the walking naked people Then along even longer you'll get to Meloneras...More

Lovely beach, nice and quiet. Sunlounger is €3.50 each, and same for brolly but it's €9 if you get 2 loungers and a brolly.

Nice quiet beach, very clean and well kept. Quite a few sun beds at reasonable prices for the day spaced out along the beach. Like a few other people have commented on the sand gets very hot!

It is a mix of golden Saharan sand and black volcanic sand. I personally think it looks nice, it is however very very hot when dry and in full sun so I would recommend sandals
