In that dark sand is just dark sand, though.

Most of the ones at Algarrobo pueblo will be too, although some will close for a few weeks to take holidays (not all at the same time, though).

I am not a beach person (have honestly never set foot on one since moving here just over 13 years ago), but like to walk on the seaside promenades and you can walk all the way along from El Morche just past Algarrrobo Costa to Torre del Mar now (involves crossing a couple of footbridges over river beds) which is a very nice walk. In my opinion none of the beaches along this coastline are what I would call very nice as the sand is dark and the beaches narrow in places, unlike the beaches on the Costa Blanca or the Costa de la Luz. I think the best one is Torre del Mar which is a broad stretch and never crowded even at the height of the summer (unlike some stretches of the beach at Torrox Costa where the sunloungers are crammed in like sardines).
Thank You Lynn that is what I wanted to know that is very helpful I am going to concentrate my search in this area, this is what I am looking for we love walking along promenades thank you again if I have more questions I hope its ok to ask you,
Adam

Certainly, I'll be happy to answer your questions if I can. Best not to ask me anything about cars or schools though - I know the sum total of zero about either!
