The beach is several kilometers long and in a beautiful setting with majestic cliffs at its end. Although it is mostly known for surfers, it's large enough to accommodate many users and there is a nice naturist tradition there. Naturists tend to concentrate in the...More

Cool place to be if you like beach, surfing, relaxing. Few restaurants and cafe's, a supermercado and lots of surfing. Nicely located if you want to see other parts of the island, like Teguise. Not the place if you want to spend your time partying...More

This is a great place to visit and enjoy some real Canarian cuisine. We dined at El Riscos overlooking the sea and there are other restaurants that also look great. We will definitely return to try the other restaurants.

Don't let the look of this place put you off. It is basic but the food is delicious. The service is superb. Very reasonable prices and parking nearby. It is situated near a fabulous beach and scenery is amazing.

If you want to get away from the tourist hussle and bussle this lovely wee place is well worth a visit. Most roads are sand tracks and the beach is huge (although not necessarily suitable for swimming due to strong currents). There is a massive...More
