Very wide sandy beach, facing west and very exposed to north atlantic swells. It`s almost never flat but it doesn´t handle big swells.

The beach sits in a sand dune natural reserve area and it is surrounded by many miles of desert beachbreaks and plenty of empty surf potential. There are stylish beachbars and a very cool surf school that only stays open in the summer. A ghost town in the winter time.

Atmosphere

There is almost no crowd and easy to find cool relaxed atmosphere in the line up. Respect and be respected!

Very interesting local and traditional fishing fauna. Great tipical restaurants and fantastic gastronomy.
