Mona´s family grade: 8.0
Mom:Sometimes we go to the beach by the castillo Sohail or to a
beach called El Faro (which is close to the Club la Costa.) The beach by
the castillo is nice, the only thing is that it get quite deep quite
suddenly. So, when you are with children you always need to be aware. It
is a clean beach, and the drive the tractor there every day to turn the
sand. There are lots of nice Chiringuitos. In the winter they put up
these shields for the wind (don't know what they are called in English.)
The beach walk in itself is a nice walk, run or cycle.
Faro beach is better, and there are lots of nice shells and rocks to
collect there. There is not an entrance to the road from the beach, you
have go through a tunnel, under the N-340 to the other side. Here you
have parking, and usually there is spaces there. Here there is also a
Chiringuito. (August 2009) Grade: 8.0
