Create an itinerary including Sotavento Beach
Steady winds attract kite surfers and windsurfers to the wide stretch of golden sand at Sotavento Beach. The winds blow strongly enough to deter many beachgoers looking for a relaxing afternoon though small dunes covered in vegetation do provide shelter. The 5-km (3.1-mi) beach has two sections, Playa Risco del Paso and Playa Barca, though there is no major difference between them. Nudists do frequent these beaches, mostly to the far ends of the sand.

  • When I was here, the sandy beach was very clean and clear of any rubbish, plus the ocean’s colour was just like you see in all the photos - beautiful!

  • Beautiful golden sand beach. At low tide, small natural pools form where birds come to fish. Crystal clear water. A really nice place to walk and relax.
  • Ideal beach to see the sunrise, they are formed as two beaches at the same time, ideal for surfers. When it is windy it is impossible to feel the sand on the body quite a bit but I think that's where the name comes from. A lovely unspoiled place to relax
