This place is pretty much summed up as a local beach, intended for locals only. Little to no facilities nearby. Plain and simple, average.

This is a lovely family beach. White sands, clear shallow water albeit freezing. Only blot is the refinery to the east. Unfortunately no sun beds but good selection of restaurants and bars.

Clean, white sand, lifeguards, backdrop of Gibraltar and of the container port on your right. But if you are in Algeciras, looking for a beach, they don't come any better than Playa Rinconcillo!!

We were dissapointed with this beach: the sand is dark, it hurts your feet, it is to close to the harbour, so it doesn´t seem so clean and it is to noisy because we could hear the shipps and the machines working :(
