We found the beach has changed so much and the sandy area is now very small. It was busy on the day we visited by lunchtime so it must be impossible in the summer months. The water was clean and the waves were great fun...More

We caught the bus to Nadur and walked down to San Blas to watch the Gregalata (a strong wind from the Northeast). The road is incredibly steep, but there are jeeps to take you back up. We didn't know about the jeeps at the time,...More

Probably best visited by boat as it is a very steep drive down to the beach not even sure if you can drive all the way down.. Very unspoilt not sophisticated fabulous beach. If your looking for glitz this is not the place for you!

It's not as you see it on the photos. It was a bit of a disappointment when we show it. Very small beach, too much seaweed on the shore. Red sand and clear waters and some big rocks. Sunbeds and umbrellas for 15 euros. We...More

We found the steep climb totally worth the effort. We were looking for a not too crowded en not-touristy beach, and this was exactly what it was. Great place to snorkel as well. Downside: if you want shade, you have to rent an umbrella (5...More

Right above, on very bottom of hill, there are small parking place for one car (jeep) where is sign with prices and some guy, who will pick you up. If you would be lucky, you can take drive also down (on his return drive).
