Beach with rocks, (no sand). Deep water. Perfect for swimming, but not for small children. Close to shops, parking, icecream, food. You can rent sunbeds for 4,50 Euros.

Not the sandiest of beaches, but clean. Your best bet is to walk west along the grand sweep of promenade towards Albir, where the beach is better and the waterfront well-stocked with refreshing little bars and restaurants.
