The various services available at the beach make it get awarded the Blue Flag in recent years.

As a leisure option, around this beach, we have Ruta de la pasa, which runs through several towns that have a set of vineyards and raisin beds where the grapes are dried in the sun. The exceptional climate of the Costa del Sol favors the production of special grapes and this is where the celebrations of the famous festivals of Verdiales occur.
