The heavy rains have 'cleaned' the storm drains and arroyos carrying the cut (see the ends) bamboo/cane down to the sea - the beach is covered with it. The council are doing a great job of cleaning up, there a piles of bamboo, all the beaches.

The beach is a bit remote, which means that it is much calmer here than in the more central beaches. However, there are some really good restaurants in the area.

This is an excellent beach, worth visiting from anywhere in Malaga and easily accessed by train with the station across the road. Plenty of restaurants and bars as well as good swimming although the sand on this part of the coast can be gravelly.
