A very lovely safe sheltered beach, with pine trees behind for shade. Clean white sand (a bit coarse). There a small hut and gazebo serving food and drinks so perfect for lunch too. Water is very cold !!

small beach, not too crowded witha couple of chiringuitos. Nice for kids. The beach has showers and the sea water is not too cold compared to the other side of the o grove peninsula.

Clean turquoise water and nice familiar ambience. Good for children with rocks to play and climb. Could be difficult to find a place for parking.
