Let me start by saying the view was phenomenal. The issue I found was that it is small so finding a spot to settle down is hard, and there are no sun beds or umbrellas for hire. If you plan on going into the water...More

Spent here an afternoon. The beach is super nice and cosy, SUP are available also and kaiaks. I like it more than Sa Riera, but would not come here again since it's sooooo crowded.

This little beach has developed a lot over the years. There's now a number of restaurants and a convenience beach shop and even a diving business. Very soft sand - we came on a cloudy day midweek so not packed. Worth a day's visit.

Great beach where we had a good time. Make sure you get early because it gets really crowded and impossible to park. Eventhough the beach was full we manage to get some place at some rocks to the left.

Aiguablava is a great sand beach, not very big, but quite packed with people. It's ok for a day and you can enjoy the great food at Toc Al Mar, but if you're looking for more wild and virgin places that's not the one. There...More

The beach have some restaurants where you will find bathrooms. The restaurants are beside the beach, so, you won't have problems to reach them.
