Sadly this has been true for so much of Spain . People just drop their litter , throw it from their cars ,walk past it . We picked up a large bag of plastic cups, bags, bottles and waste walking to and from the beach...More

Awesome little spot off the beaten path if you get tired of the historical streets of Seville or on your way thru. Pretty much a Holliday spot for sevillians. But as a international you'll be greeted with open arms. The beach is so massive. You...More

We were staying in Seville and decided on an afternoon at the beach so drove the 80km (1 hour) to Matalascanas. A beautiful place, but to say it was like a ghost town would be an understatement, we probably saw 4 or 5 people the...More

It is the closest beach to Seville, I thought it's not too bad at all.. We went there on a Saturday and it's quite a crowd of family and locals sun bathing and relaxing. I think it's quite normal for folks to sun bathed half...More
