The Pirates Beach is a beautiful beach of fine sand and Sandy bottoms located in the heart of Los Caños.
It can be said that is the main beach of Los Caños, for its environment, *chiringuitos and because of it being in a town. Is a sandy beach, with little stony places, clear water and little moved.
Is the most equipped beach since it has watching services and restrooms. Behind it there are several bars and restaurants, and from the little ravine that separates the road, the first sweet water wells are born.
The beach ends in a beautiful peak formed by the action of the rocky reefs, lajas, which are visible like islands with low tide. This area has the most transparent and cold waters.
After the peak, there are many small coves that communicates with the nudist beach, being the most known beach by the castillejos, last place you can reach by car.
It’s the most popular beach because also from being in what could be called the center of Los Caños, is where there’s more leisure options, like *chiringuitos La Morena and Good Karma, or the known Jaima-Meccarola. Many people go to spend the day at the beach and then keep partying in some of this locals. Also from being the most crowded place in summer nights to do the botellón.
Although the size of the Pirate’s Beach is not so big, it has very clear divisions. The first part that goes from the Estrecho Beach Urbanization to the Pirate Bar is the family zone, where kids enjoy a lot since that area is not very covered by water; the second part, which goes from the Pirate Bar to the Good Karma *Chiringuito is the youngest and partying zone, there goes the people who come to spend a weekend to Los Caños looking for fun and lots of people; the third part, that goes from the Good Karma *Chiringuito to the beach of Los Castillejos, is the quietest of them all, since is the most empty and quiet one.
The beach is not very wide to practice beach sports, since every year the winter temps take more and more sand.
In the Laja zone (a formation of rocks in front of the peak) you can dive since the area is full of marine flora and fauna and many spectacular caves and corners. The rest of the beach is not so shocking for diving.
