This is what a summer vacation in south of Spain would look like in my mind. The view was breathtaking and the square was filled with music. It was relaxing and picture perfect!

This area has a great sunshine atmosphere of friendliness and relaxation. Surrounded by well appointed bars, cafes and restaurants you can walk the length down to beautiful sea venues. Musicians play to compliment the atmosphere. Well worth a visit

Beautiful place and a lovely sea view. A lively square with a lot of musicans. A lovely place to hang out, but a bit too crowded.

After dinner or as part of a city walk this is a nice place to visit. The view from the balcony is stunning. There are several cafes and restaurants around as well as ice cream places. Perfect place also for a nice photo or selfie.

This is a pedestrianised plaza which, as it's name, is a balcony overlooking the sea and alongside the Hotel Balcon de Europa. Literally thousands come here and every evening people are promenading and listening to the itinerant musicians and other street artists.

Worth a visit for the views. Lots of places to sit and watch the world go by and there are some great buskers to listen to.

We went in April and it was 20 degrees but also had rain. I am told it enjoys a warm climate all year round due to its location. It can even be lovely at Christmas The hottest months though will be July/Aug/sept
