Solmar Beach: This long, wide stretch of white sand beach faces the Pacific Ocean and continues to rocks at Land´s End to the base of Pedregal to the West. Like Divorce Beach, this stretch of beach faces the Pacific and it is not safe for swimmers because of strong current and undertow.

Lie down and relax as the sounds of the crashing wave's sooth you to sleep. Access to this beach is via the road to Hotel Solmar.
