  • Rocky and small beach with many stones. Although the sunsets are spectacular, the beach is uncomfortable

  • Relaxing near Las Galgas beach in one of the hotels. Regularly came to swim and rest sunbathing. I liked this beach because it is protected from the wind and there are small waves. The beach is covered with imported sand, which is very heated. Walking barefoot is difficult, as it is very hot :-)

  • Great quiet beach with not many people around. It’s made of sand and at the end are some small pebbles/stones. There are indeed no bars, beds, toilets, etc. at the beach, but honestly I found that rather pleasant! I don’t like big crowded, busy, noisy beaches and our apartment was just uphill (AirBnB). Came here for a few weeks in a row and it’s always pleasant and very clean and never busy. For swimming I would highly recommend water shoes and swimming at high tide is easier then with the low tide, because of the big stones that are hidden in the water. Swimming is not dangerous at all, as long as you don’t swim across the two big rocks on each side. From there the tide is more powerful and you might need a little bit more experienced, but other then that it’s perfect. I saw a lot of families with small children too, and it seemed perfectly suitable for them with their stroller and babies/toddlers to be at this beach. A lot of families returned almost every day. Overall, if you’re looking for a quiet, clean, sand beach that gives you the paradise feeling, I would definitely recommend this one. If you, however, like more buzz, bars, lounge chairs, I would recommend going to Los Christianos or Las Americas.
  • Beautiful beach in Playa Paraiso. Not crowded. Perfect if you want not much trouble. No food and drinks available.
