Summary of the Beach Inspectors

The beautiful white houses, restaurants and cafés are only a few of the reasons why you should visit the idyllic little village of Abadas. Playa de Los Abrigos has good swimming conditions and the offshore barrier reef offers an excellent environment for a first taste of the underwater world of snorkelling, or for more experienced divers to improve their skills. If you are a nature lover, you will enjoy the nice scenery, especially that of  the smaller of the two bays, and going for walks in the surrounding area.

Playa de Los Abrigos - Two relaxing bays with very good diving options

In the small village of Abades in the south-east of the island can be found two lovely, untouched bays. There is a car park only a few metres away from the larger of the two bays. The fine, grey sandy area of this bay provides plenty of space to relax. It is well sheltered from the currents and you will also find showers here. Several restaurants and cafés are situated in the main square of the village which is just next to the bay.

Playa de Los Abrigos also known as Playa de Abades has excellent diving conditions. The offshore barrier reef with its variety of underwater life is ideal for divers and snorkelers, many of who also find their way to the beach. The local diving school has a large selection of courses on offer, from taster courses for beginners right through to certified courses for advanced divers. Here you can take the plunge into a completely different world, knowing that you are being well looked after and appropriately equipped.

During the holidays and on public holidays it can get quite crowded in the larger bay. If you like it a bit quieter and perhaps want to swim naked then you should go to the second, smaller bay. At the end of the larger bay a small path over the hill leads to this bay. Here it is less crowded and there is more space for relaxation. Although it is officially not allowed, you will see people camping here.
