Nice beach with dark sand
Overall rating

A nice beach, warm water, and a lifeguard, not crowded at all, watch out for the boiling hot sand. We had a walk along to the cliffs which was also nice, will go there again.

Gran Tarajal
Overall rating 
 
5.0
Love this beach, it is not crowded and is really relaxing. The town is built on a hill and it is advisable to park the car near to the beach. Don't leave the car in a street on the hill in town, you may never find it again, all the roads look the same and you may forever walk up and down hills searching.
