  • A fully equipped beach with golden sand taken in the desert in an absolutely artificial environment. To get there you cross a road to which there are horrible shipyards and monstrous refineries. A demanding, uncertain attempt to give a dignified beach to the inhabitants of the capital.

  • Beautiful fine sandy beach. Very sprawling. Very well visited, some beach bars with loungers, beach volleyball. Easy entry into the water.

  • Nice beach with sand from The Sahara desert. No restaurants or cafes directly kn the beach but closeby. Very enjoyable however quite cold water inside of the barrier compared to other beaches on the island.
  • Great large beach with sand from Sahara, with few beach bars along, generous parking places, no waves, great for families with children. The only enemy is the wind... if it’s too windy you’ll have sand all over you.
