In front of this beach you can also see the islands of “La Torre” (the tower) and “La Horadada”. La Magdalena beach is also protected by the bay and hence, its watters are very calm. Due to all these Characteristics, this is a very popular beach for families with kids.
However, please note that although its calm waters ideal for swimming, the seabed has sharp rocks with jagged edges, so swimming during low tides is not advisable.
