Nice beach, slightly out of the town

Getares is smaller than Rinconcillo, so can be rammed on a weekend day in July or August. The sand... read more

This is an incredibly clean beach with lots of sand and calm waters. We had no issue finding a quiet space on the beach and there are lots of Helados Artesanales too! (Could not find any toilets apart from in the eating places).

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 places but you only need to go a few yards to avoid them.
Good facilities such as changing rooms, showers, sunloungers for hire, restaurants and shops right on the front. Large car park - seems to cost 60 cents.

This beach is about 6 km from Algeciras and has beautiful clean sand.

View is beautiful as bay looks across at Gibraltar and although a lot of ships pass, they are quite far away and are no problem at all.

Very long and plenty room and is not crowded. Car park is quite big but not big enough as beach is very long.

Simple beach type restaurants, ice cream, cafes,bars and shops on the promenade.

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.
