This is effectively one beach made up of smaller beaches/ It stretches from the Lighthouse to Conil and Chiclana (LosBancos)and farther. You can enjoy the sun setting directly over the sea.
Word of warning for those of you that have like to swim. The waters around here have very strong tide and currents especially in the area surrounding the lighthouse. The cape of Trafalgar that lays of the coast , the seabed and the cliffs provoke swirls and turbulence that can be fatal to anyone swimming too far out. 700m from shore you will find the Aceitera zone , an area which is greatly appreciated by fishermen and divers for its rich fauna and archeological remains.
However this in one of the most dangerous for bathers, every year there are stories of disappeared divers in the area
