Una de las mejores playas para mi, siempre vuelvo y me sigue cautivando su agua y sus olas, muy recomendable paseo obligatorio more »One of the best beaches for me, always come back and still captivates me its water and its waves, highly recommended ride compulsory
Very nice beach and very well located. It is close to the bus station and the main food and meeting points. I was at the beginning of the summer and it was pretty empty, which I consider a good thing. There's no tents and it's very clean. Great for hiking and for those who seek peace
The beach of Punta mornings. Open, agitated and cold sea. But a great beach. Walk to the fingers and take a picture. Near the Gorlero restaurants, after the sea bath. In the afternoon, you change the beach and go to Mansa, with its calm waters that justify the name. I await the sunset of Mansa, in Oporto or in the paradors of all the beach
