Gatetos Beach restaurant in Carvajal impressed us. The most charming place we have visited in Spain. Excellent food, splendid atmosphere and filled with locals. Get off the train in Carvajal and spend an evening you never will forget!

Maybe I shouldn't share this well-kept secret, but we have been coming to this beach for years. We always felt safe here with our young children as this beach is secluded. We always have a meal at Kalifato. Highly recommend.
