Playa El Desnarigado is a small beach of Ceuta, a Spanish city bordering northern Morocco. The beach is about 80 metres in length with an average width of about six metres.[1]

The beach is named after the Desnarigado who was said to be a pirate. He had worked and then escaped in mines in the Riff mountains. He was named the Desnarigado as this means without a nose which was the method of marking those who worked in the mines.
