Unfortunately, at this time, it was very windy so the surf was blown. Much better for windsurfing or kite-surfing. It was worth the drive from Porto Calero just to see what kind of surfing is out here as compared to Cali.

Beautiful beach but not for young children or the infirm , great for surfers as these waters can be quite rough !
Under currents can be found here so be careful .
Nice to walk along and the scenery is beautiful but those with young children just be careful xx

Super little surfing town, you can hire board and wetsuit for about 8 Euros for half a day. The beach itself has free parking adjacent to the beach where you can park all day. The surf itself was ok when we went but I reckon we caught it on just an ok day. The beach itself doesn't have any showers or toilets but there is a bar / cafe in the town.

Best bit about the beach is from the water you can see all the mountains - it really does feel like Hawaii!

After a drive through the barren landscape, you finally arrive at this gorgeous beach. Pure sandy goodness! Great waves too. Nothing much in the adjacent town, 7/8 surf shops/schools and a couple of restaurants.
