One can turnoff the prom into Calle Bulto which has beautiful apartments above more shops. Halfway down this street is La Tahona - a bakery with... More

It still has a few cheesy elements, after all, it's Blackpool on the costa, but it's much improved. The beach is well manicured, and loungers are well... More

As with all this coast line you wont find it hard to get some cold drinks and food to take on to the beach. It can get very busy in the high season but its a welcome change from the same ol, same ol beach near you.

Older part of the resort around the headland. Lots of nice backstreet bars and restaurants. Plenty of character and nice beach.

Nice beach. I especially like the restaurants just on the beach. You can eat great seafood for really low price like 10-15 eur maximum.
