Summary of the Beach Inspectors

Piedra Playa is well worth a visit if you appreciate natural beauty and high waves. Relaxed hours can be enjoyed here while watching the water-sport activities at this first-class beach. Alternatively, you can try it yourself and take your surfboard onto the crashing waves. Care has to be taken while swimming as the waves and currents can be dangerous. There is almost always a quiet place at the beach to be found with plenty of room for its visitors to spread out.

Piedra Playa (Playa del Castillo) - A beach completely left to nature and surrounded by steep cliffs

The beach of Piedra Playa is situated about one kilometre south of El Cotillo and can only be reached via a rather bumpy gravel road. The ways down to the beach are quite steep and in parts just a dirt track. However, the beach is more than worth the effort: completely left to nature, it has a breathtaking cliff landscape, fine sand and the sight and sound of spectacular breaking waves.

Piedra Playa stretches for over 1500 metres with steep cliffs at both ends. The predominately sandy beach has small rocks and stones in certain areas which accentuates its natural beauty.
Big waves in combination with strong winds make Piedra Playa a paradise for surfers and for experienced wind-surfers and kite-surfers. However, waves and currents can be dangerous and care should be taken while swimming. The beach is patrolled by lifeguards from July to October and there are ample car parking spaces along the cliffs. However, there are no restaurants, toilets or surf-schools here, but you will always find a quiet place at this beach as there is plenty of room for everybody to spread out.
