Playa de la Cala el Canuelo Reviews
Den hör stranden får man inte missa om man besöker Costa del Sol. Lite svårtillgänglig, men det går bussar under sommaren från parkeringen. Annars ca 30 min promenad. Vattnet är det klaraste jag upple... more »The beach is not to be missed if you visit the Costa del Sol, but there are buses during the summer from the car park. Otherwise about 30 mins walk. The water is the clearest I have experienced in Spain and in the low season you are almost alone on the beach. There is a restaurant open all year round. Must not be missed!
La playa está bien pero para niños demasiado oleaje y corrientes. Tiene zona bonita para hacer snorkel. Un buen restaurante. Lo único que la entrada a la playa o caminando 20 min o en autobús .

Go early because otherwise there's too much cola and too much heat waiting
The beach is very nice with a clear water for swimming but the guy packs away the sun loungers and chucks you off at around 6.30pm. As we only arrived in late afternoon, we were obviously not happy. Shuttle bus gets very busy after 7pm so we walked back up, which was actually nice - good views of the beach!
Lovely beach, losses a star for being slightly grubby but way cleaner then further down the coast at Nerja. Get the shuttle bus down the hill is exhilarating in itself and once down there are beds and wicker umbrellas. The beds are surprisingly comfy. Amazing restaurant, portions are huge so I suggest sharing mains if you’re not wanting to be a beached whale!
