Isla Cristina Beaches - Playa Punta del Caimán y Playa Isla de las Gaviotas


This beach stretching 2km is made up of two areas: Punta del Caimán and Isla de la Gaviotas ("Seagull Island"). The island takes its name from the colony of seagulls that breed there during the winter.

The beach is very clean with transparent waters, classified as being slightly more "wild" and very much enjoyed by naturists. Its high standards of cleanliness and facilities are usually recognised and it is awarded a Blue Flag most years. The number of visitors, despite being one of the best known places in the town, is low so it will never feel overcrowded.

Access to the beach is through a bridge just at the end of the Gran Vía. It currently has secure parking, access walkways, access for the disabled, several kiosks and beach bars, cleaning services, litter bins, showers, toilets, public telephones, danger signage and rescue and surveillance equipment. In addition, there is the possibility of renting small boats and other watersports.

Playa Isla de Las Gaviotas is also equipped with solid ramps leading down almost to the shore specifically for wheelchair users as well as certain areas of hard flooring and shade.
