This isn't an ocean beach – it's a beach on a lagoon. Europe's largest saltwater lagoon, just separated from the Mediterranean by a 24 kilometre long strip of land. The water is shallow, less than four metres deep, and warm, and conditions are perfect for children, because as well as being calm, warm and shallow, the lagoon is right beside a huge bed of salt flats so its salinity is high and its very 'floaty'. The sludge in the salt pans is supposed to have health giving properties so expect to find mud people wallowing in it. What's really nice about the beaches that ring this lagoon is that they've largely escaped development, so you've got a relatively au natural spot on the Spanish Med.

This is also a good spot to have a first go at some of those wind based watersports.
