This is the main beach in Arrecife and does get busy. You can hire sunbeds and parasols. It’s nice to sit and watch the sunset from the beach.

a lovely beach within easy walking distance of Arrecife centre area. Plenty of restaurants and cafes available and for me, most importantly, public toilets available at the beach side.

It's a lovely place to stroll about. There were lots of people having fun and a few people training for stuff but the water wasn't clean the day we visited to check that but was lovely all the same
