Very nice beach, nice view. The only recommendation is be aware of the broken glass on the floor because on Friday night Spanish people has El Botellon and many broken glasses the next morning. So be careful of your child.

I would say 4-5 euros. And yes, there are cabs near the beach. Plenty of them by the Casino and by Feygon. There is also regular bus service.
