Lovely fine sand, gently shelves into the sea, plenty of space, decent price for sunbeds/parasols (€3 per piece). Nice beach cafes/bars and good shower facilities.

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.

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
