Summary of the Beach Inspectors
Playa Esmeralda South, also known as Playa de Jandia, is recommended for those who enjoy nude bathing. At the one end of the beach there are sun-loungers for hire and at the other end bushes and small rocks provide shelter and privacy. Ideal for a relaxed, enjoyable day at a sandy beach and at the crystal clear sea. If you fancy a walk, you can stroll along the coast right up to the big town beach of Costa Calma.

Playa Esmeralda South (Playa de Jandia) - Bright, beige-coloured sandy beach below the dunes

Playa Esmeralda South, also known as Playa Jandia, is situated about 5 minutes by car from the well-known holiday resort of Costa Calma, from where you can also easily walk along the coast to this small bay. The fine beige-coloured sandy beach can be found below the sparsely vegetated dunes. The sea is clear and inviting for swimming.

At the southern part of the beach sun-loungers can be hired, around which there are protective nets which unfortunately are not so pleasing for the eye. Separated by a rock is the northern part of Playa Esmeralda South which can only be reached along the sand at low tide. Here there is a slightly sloping sandy area with bushes and smaller rocks. This part of the beach is mainly frequented by nudists.
