  • If you get fed up being by the sea...head to the hills - wonderful views of the countryside and sea - worthwhile drive for a change of scenery 
  • According to fulfill years increasingly appreciation over this kind of desolate, landscape very similar to the of the Canary Islands, where contrast white villages in dark land. The semi volcanic landscapes are very special, always makes a very reasonable time and is much less crowded and quieter than other areas of our coast. In addition, coast landscapes are unique and it eats very well, you can not ask for more.

  • Nice place to visit. A lot of natural beaches and red mountains Unfortunately the region is strewn with glasshouses (plastic) for the cultivation of tomatoes. Not understandable (nature reserve) and ugly. Simon Visit my website: www.noireblanc.de
  • The best place in spain, beach and mountain
  • Espectaculares vistas, paisajes, playas... Buen sitio para bucear y hacer snorkel.
  • A really special place with a certain magic. One of my favorite destinations in Spain.
  • A wonderful very well-kept beaches. Although access costs five euros per car or take the bus. If you like diving and the sea let you you can see much more flora and fauna than anywhere else. Pay attention to the wind because being a headland it tends to blow hard. Being Virgin beaches there are no shower facilities or bars so you should go with the food prepared.
