Barronal beach

Cabo de Gata Natural Park

Width: 45 m  Length: 250 m    Sand: dark
Road: Camino de Tierra de San José to Cala Carbón

It is one of the best beaches in the area for its beauty. Its fine sand sometimes darkened by basalt erosion is very pleasant. It is located in an unbeatable environment and of great geological interest, with lava formations falling on the coast giving us some shade. This beach is classified as nudist because when the practice of naturism was prohibited it was the only one where it was allowed to be naked. The beauty of this place makes it quite visited, however given the impossibility of arriving by car and being the arduous road it is never crowded. To get there you have to stop at the track that leads to Monsul and just before reaching the landmark is a stone hut where you will perhaps see a car parked at the edge of the track. Then we will cross a long sandy road. We recommend bringing water because there is nowhere near where to stock up on it and protection from the sun.
