Why is this place so attractive for tourists?
I will tell you, why this place attracted me.

In article you will also find information about the beach infrastructure, bars and hotels, located next to it.

Playa del Camison – its wonderful piece of Las Americas

After resting and bathing on the Las Vistas Beach I headed towards Las Americas, admiring of the waves of the Atlantic Ocean and watching the sun hide behind the gray clouds. And then the picturesque picture opened of my eyes: the track in front of me was decorated with a row of tall palms with lush crowns, and to the left I saw a small beach. The reed umbrellas, which reminded me of the houses of African tribes, given charm of it. I went down to the beach, its sand was please, softness and warmth.
Looking around a little, I decided to swim. There were few people on the shore (on May), even less they swam in the ocean. The bathing was pleasant, the waves did not disturb much, their onslaught was restrained by two stone piers, covering the water area of ​​Playa del Camison. After taking an ocean “bath”, I strolled along the beach and studied its infrastructure.

  • Despite the small size (length about 350 m, and width 8-10 – I did not measure, the data sources on the web are contradictory), there is enough space for all comers. You can hide from the scorching rays of the heavenly body on comfortable sun loungers under one of the tropical umbrellas, arranged in three rows along the coastline. For this pleasure you will have to pay 6 euros. You can relax for free on the grass under the palms (saw people of different ages, stretched out on their own towels on the lawns). If you like the proximity of the ocean or want to save, then you can spread the towel on the sand. This method will allow you to enjoy the sound of waves, but will not protect against sunlight.
