  • It is so beautiful that in summer there are too many people for whom we live all year in that spa. It's flat, safe for family with children. There are 2 huts of lifeguards given the extensive of the beach. It is an open bay, with artisan fishermen at one end and in the other good rocks for fishermen, more dangerous at that end. Very enjoyable in March

  • I visited a few weeks ago this playita lost in the middle of dunes, a nice and picturesque place, with a small handicraft fair and food to the pass. To get there, you have to leave the car in a parking lot and move in trucks suitable for the dunes, a different and entertaining experience, the beach is suitable for children and there are also small houses next to the beach that are rented. I did not like the beach full of seaweed and something dirty.
