“Fantastic beach”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

Beautiful beach - very shallow so safe for kiddies, lots of fish swimming around in the clear water. Half way down the beach is a rocky patch with a little pool carved out of it - the water here is a bit murky from salt & sand, but lovely and warm, great for kids (and moms wanting to warm up!). The rocks are great for catching little fish - get a fishing net and a bucket to entertain children and grown ups for hours catching fish, little crabs, tiny prawns - obviously release them back into the sea afterwards!

“Super beach clean and family friendly”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

The beach is lovely very clean and has nice beach bars along it so you can get s snack or drink. There is a great pirate boat with slides etc and a climbing frame and a childrens play area, which my little boy loved. Its shallow very far out so very safe and no seaweed. There is a great promanade where you can get everything you need for the beach. The loungers and umbrellas are limited but as this mainly a kids beach there are always some available - it cost €14.50 for 2 loungers and an umbrella for the day.

“Fantastic relaxing beach break”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

This was our first time in Calpe and my husband and I absolutely loved it. We stayed in an apartment which was two minutes walk from Arenal bol beach and were very pleasantly surprised at how stunning this beach is. There is also a lovely promenade with plenty of bars and restaurants where you can just sit and enjoy the sea view. We are already planning our next trip there.

“Superb sandy beacj”
Reviewed 17 February 2013 via mobile

Great sea sand and safety. With life guards wheel chair access and gentle slopping beach this is ideal for all families. Childrens playgrounds and foot washes make this a great friendly beach. Lots of bsrs and cafes line the promenade. There are roman ruins to see and some great walks for those who don't want to lounge in the sun. 5 stars from me.
