About us

The Joy Beach House was born with the purpose of slowing down even the most uncontrollable hearts, here it´s the right place to stop, breathe and simply enjoy. In a comfortable and clear environment, but with a lot of identity, where the character and simplicity of the natural elements predominate, we want our guests to feel at home, ready to enjoy and celebrate life. At Joy you can let the sun rays and the sea breeze enter to your room, have a lovely and caring breakfast, discover idyllic paths that run through the pine forest or simply enjoy a day at the beach, have a picnic in that little corner you have found and breathe the purest of all airs, come back and read that book you left in the middle while you savour your favorite drink, relax in the pool, take a refreshing bath and see the moon reflecting in the sea. En-JOY...
