Playa de la Glea is by far the most popular of the 3 beaches with most visitors heading to this beach to enjoy their day and to also participate in the numerous water-sports on offer.
Playa de Barranco Rubio, is not as busy as Playa de la Glea but the sea is much calmer and not as deep making it ideal for families and those with small children. Playa de Aguamarina is much smaller than the other beaches at around 500 metres in length, almost a cove like beach and not as accessible, the conditions are similar to Playa de Barranco Rubio making it another safe choice for families with small children.
