The 4km Playa de Ris is a clean family-friendly beach that is great for surfing, canoeing and other watersports. A busy beach covered in fine golden sand, it is well-looked after and watched over by lifeguards. Children will love searching for crabs and other creatures in the rock pools and swimming in the shallow waters. At low tide you can also walk across to the Isla San Pedro, a beautiful island covered in lush vegetation with a rustic chapel at its heart.
