This is possibly most beautiful and romantic spot along the Spanish coast. Blue tile on white washed arches, railings, and staircases... stunning place with incredible views

This is on top of a hill so views beautiful all around. Quite a few bars and cafes up here so you can rest from the heat. There are buskers and artists all around here too so its a good place to spend a hour.

Unless it's an electric wheelchair it would be a hard slog for the last 50 yards or so as the streets are quite steep from that point, plus the roads/pavements are not tarmac but it would be possible. If you used a taxi... More
