Geared up for families with young children, the gently sloping beach has all the water activities you would expect to find on a first-class Spanish beach, plus lifeguards, toilets and showers.
A palm-fringed promenade runs along the beach full of chill out bars and restaurants with many of the eateries offering a children’s menu with familiar items from back home.
