El Burro

Edit Spot


I found the spot quite nice, as the waves were strong and uncrowded. The current is quite strong, so I got tired very early. Getting out through the rocks can be painfull (urchins) better paddle against the current and leave via sandy beach. btw. nice chicks.

Additional Info:
You can park your car at the side of the road. The wave breaks at the end of the beach over rocks, plus there's a point break on the left side of the bay. If it's windy forget it, there'll be too many windsurfers speeding around. While the beach is sandy and soft, the ground in the water ┬┤mostly rock, looking like sand-bottom (yes!).
I recommend booties, as I made contact with sea-urchins -> Ouch!
Can be nice there, definetely worth a try.
English people call this spot Glass beach, maybe because of the crystal clear water.


Dirve from Corralejo down south. After the big hotels, near the dunes is a small sandy beach with strange "towers" on it. Your there.
