Lovely sandy beach, really quiet during the week but quite busy at weekend with lots of locals also enjoying the sand and sea. Lots of little cafes bordering the beach itself, well worth a visit -

Nice clean beach, plenty of room. Bars and cafes along the promenade. Near bus stop and car park. Liked the beach it was nice and relaxing, didn't like the tractors on there when we went but I think they were cleaning the beach.

Out of season, but enough bars/cafes open. Excellent sandy beach with good views of Gibraltar & shippoing activity. Expect it to be crowded in summer. Regular bus service (L8).

Forget the Costa del Sol and its black small beaches. This is big, with while sand and lots of eating places. Plenty of space to park your car but you need to arrive earlier on a Sunday.
