This is a lovely beach, very clean water and lots to do such as water sports, shopping and bars. My only negative is the amount of people selling things.. but this happens on all beaches, we just found that el bobo beach was quieter.

I saw them in our hotel H10 Las Palmeras. I think they were 70 euro for the week. A lot of people were using them on the sea front. Hope this helps.
