Fodor's Review

The Spanish Banks and Locarno beaches form a sandy chain, and have huge expanses of sunbathing sand backed by wide lawns full of picnic tables. There are also volleyball courts. The shallow water, warmed slightly by sun and sand, is good for swimming. Farther west along the coastline, toward the Spanish Banks Extension, the scene becomes less crowded. Spanish Banks West and Locarno beaches are designated "quiet beaches," which means that amplified music is prohibited. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; parking (free); toilets; water sports. Best for: atmosphere; sunset; swimming; walking; windsurfing.
