Our opinion on the Los Genoveses Beach

Adresse of the Los Genoveses Beach : ALP-822 04118 San José

Located in a totally uninhabited area between the lighthouse of Cabo de Gata and the town of San José (south of the natural park of Cabo de Gata Nijar), Los Genoveses beach (Playa de Los Genoveses) is among the most beautiful beaches of Andalusia. Crescent formed, it stretches on almost 900 meters in a sublime fine sand environment with a volcanic landscape background.

East oriented, it is not recommended on windy days, currents may appear. It then becomes a pleasant spot to practice windsurfing.

No services on the beach, do not forget to bring a lot of water with you.

South side of the beach (right side), it is not uncommon to find some naturists.

The beach is accessible by San-Jose. Signs indicate its access. A one kilometer path allows to join the beach parking (limited places, paying in summer 5 €). As soon as the latter is full (from 10am in summer), the access is closed. We can then take shuttle buses from San-José (1.5 €) or come by bike (free access).
