A busy, port-side town beach with lots to see and do.

I prefer this beach to Playa Las Vistas, simply because there's so much activity to gawp at from the comfort of its soft, golden sand. You can watch the La Gomera ferries slipping in and out of their berths, pleasure cruisers setting sail and returning, the beach volley ball competitions, the sand sculptures... it's never a dull moment while you turn various shades of pink.

Value for money

Expert tips

If you fancy taking to the water yourself there are kayaking, canoeing and sailing schools at the water's edge.

The beach operates a no-borders policy so anyone with a disability should alert the Red Cross staff to their presence and enjoy the same facilities as everyone else.
