Not really for beach lovers

Lots of ships anchored quite close to beach, very shallow and too may kite surfers for safe bathing.

it is Enough that water quality has been improved, but this summer some people have suffered the annoying of jelly fish. for a private visit we recommend the Corner House Bernardo and restaurants and to know the beach is best to walk through it to the mouth of the Rio Palmones.

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!!

Disliked: Full of litter (plastic bags, bottles etc.) and the existing buildings Liked: Sand dunes at the end of the beach, cleaner, not crowded.

This is a great beach if you have little children as the water is shallow for a good way. No stones, white sand, plenty of different parking spots. But take your own picnic. There are bars for drinks but the food is not up to much.

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 :(
