Radazul Beach has all facilities you need for a lovely day in the sun

Playa Radazul has everything you need for a day at the beach: sun loungers, umbrellas, a lifeguard on site and a nearby playground for children. There are many parking places available right in front of the beach and another private parking close to the marina.

A great number of private apartment building can be found right behind the beach, so this is a popular beach among residents also. Many tourists choose to rent an apartment instead of staying at a hotel, since there aren’t many hotels in this area.

Playa Radazul actually comprises two small beaches, both with black volcanic sand and protected by a breakwater, which keeps the water calm and safe for swimming. The beach is popular among families with children, who love to dive in the water from the rocks.

This beach offers lovely views over the Valley of Guimar and during the more recent renovations, a garden was put into place nearby, with palm trees and colorful flowers.

Another nearby beach in Radazul is Playa de la Nea, situated on the other side of the marina. Also, if you would like to explore more of the coastline, you can take a short walk on the promenade towards the neighbour town of Tabaiba.
