Very nice beach, not crowded, water is very nice blueish and very clear. You see the fish swimming around and you feed them with bread.

There are not many beaches to beat this, beautiful golden sand and turquoise water for as far as you can see. Just be aware that there are nudists though!

Beautiful views gave for a chance to have a long walk along this beach. Clean and tidy with not too many people around. Water was lovely and blue, nice to take pictures.

We visited el salmo and risco de paso and walked up to the sotavento lagoon. Exciting wind surfing and kite surfing at northern end isolated and naturist at southern end. At low tide you can walk south to mal nombre. Fantastic sea and good swimming....More

It's fairly bog standard food. The cafe/bar has the monopoly. That said, the beer is good and if you want a tasty snack and lovely sea view then it's the place to go. Value for money? Yes, but only on crusty rolls and light bites.
