  • 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.
