The whole town is over run with German tourists who go around in large groups and are very intimidating and loud. This place is set up as a German hotspot from the restaurants to the hotels. Very dilapidated and old looking. Beaches nice and clean.

Wanna get stupid drunk go to El Arenal! There is one funny place to go to. It’s called Megapark. You have staff walking, running and dancing around in Lederhosen year round. So if you missed Octoberfest, go check out this place!

I loved this beach. The water is shallow and calm, even on a great distance from the shore. Also, it is very clean and there are many fish swimming around the people.
