Matagorda beach, Puerto del Carmen

Matagorda beach and the Northern end of Puerto del Carmen.


Puerto del Carmen has a good selection of beaches. When on holiday here you will probably make the most use of the beach closest to your accommodation.

Matagorda beach has plenty to offer. There is a great shopping centre very nearby to keep everyone happy. The beach is also set a long way from any fast traffic roads so the kids are safe.  The water is also safe due to lack of waves and fast moving currents.

This is a nice safe beach for relaxing days with the family. Parents on sunbeds, kids swimming and playing by the sea.

Matagorda beach or Hoyas Hondas.
