  • It's just lovely. The sea view is fabulous. I would advise you be careful where you eat as it is twice as expensive then 3 rows back. Great for a coffee. And the beaches are beautiful!  more »

  • Beautiful views and close to a great ice cream parlour with some of the best ice cream I've had. The dark chocolate and oreo is a must have
  • The Balcon is a good spot after dinner for an ice cream. Great meeting place and often crowded, particularly in high season.
  • nice little resort town by the Mediterranean. Comes alive during the summer. Some good views, but better even to visit the neighboring Frigiliana, a few KMs north.
  • Go here of an evening, see a magical sunset, plenty of area for everyone to move about, at Christmas it is even more magical. Enjoy it i sure did.
  • Fantastic place with wonderful views. I love it!
