|Playa de Guadarranque, San Roque.
San Roque is an unusual municipality in that it has some coastline to the west of La Linea and Gibraltar, where Guadarranque beach and Puente Mayorga are located, and some to the east with Alcaidesa Beach, Sotogrande Beach, Torreguadiaro Beach and Cala Sardina.
Playa de Guadarranque is in an unsual location at the mouth of the Rio Guadarranque with an oil refinery to one side and Los Barrios power plant to the other. If you can forget the situation, it is a very tranquil beach with fantastic views of the Rock of Gibraltar. The 800m stretch of sand of fine, golden sand is equipped with showers, a Red Cross post, a maintenance service, flags to signal the condition of the sea and several nearby bars and restaurants. The beach is also the location of a Carteia Archeological site from the year 600BC.
Located just to the west of La Linea de la Concepcion, this small beach of just one kilometre is mostly frecuented by residents of the village of the same name. It is surrounded by the industry of the oil refinery, the power plant and ports. The beach has fine, grey sand and is equipped with public toilets and showers, a Red Cross post, a maintenance service and flags to signal the condition of the water.
