When I was last there in 1961 there was just one rather exclusive hotel.......now it's hidden behind a massive housing estate. Seems a very safe beach good for families with shallow water going out quite a long way. Stones at the water's edge at some...More

Beautiful clean beach with views of Gibraltar. Cafes and shops. Gentle slope into the sea so generally safe for swimming. Popular with locals.

From the lighthouse or overlooks in Getares you can see Gibraltar, Africa and the Straits. Really stunning and something we will always remember.

The beach is nice, no more than that. The few restaurants are just about fine. It is o.k. for a walk around or a short day at the beach which is also average. Worth visiting once.

This is a stunning long beach. It has the advantage of facing East so that the prevailing wind is behind and it is sheltered by the mountains

Bit pebbly at the water's edge but not to the extent that you would have to wear beach shoes. Water a little cold given the proximity to the Atlantic :/ but a good enough beach for the area and worth a visit.
