    Just wow…! These caves are amazing, be prepared to say “wow” a lot. We visited in February on a rainy day and it was warm in there. Not like Wookey Hole in the UK.
    These really are some of the most impressive caves

    We parked in a car park, charged €1 , we then walked down the hill near the old power plant then up the dried river bed, it took us 45 mins to get to the start of the river ( we were all adults walking at a steady pace, )though it was very hot, at the start of the river you can see a dam was created. we walked up the river which was a great experience, in the shade and Cooling you down. we’re walked in the river for about 30 mins, when we seen a small waterfall on the right. Just what was needed., a lovely cool shower!! We turned back here.. I would highly recommend this walk but you need to wear runners as walking on stones in the water can be sore on the feet if you’re in the wrong shoes
    Bring plenty of water!!

    Stayed in an apartment directly opposite the beach and we visited a number of times and found the beach to always be clean and lovely to swim in the clear waters.
    The general area has lots of facilities, including toilets, cafes and lovely restaurants, parking may be an issue and it always seemed busy with parked cars, especially during the day.
    Beach it’s self is more shingle and a pair of swim shoes is recommended, there are lots of beds and sun shades to rent, the beach has the sun from sunset to sundown when we were there.

    Behind the simple whitewashed façade are some very beautiful sculptures and other pieces of religious art.

    Take time to study the side chapels, with their ornate altars.

    Lovely beach, surf was quite big, so swimming was tricky for the kids, but there was a sheltered area at one end where they could swim. Not too busy, mainly Spanish families. Really nice little restaurant at the back of the beach, recommend the sardines.

    Only tricky bit was on one day when there was only one bus running, so had to wait in the heat in a large queue to get back up the mountain. Normally there are three busses running. Was around 2 euros per person for the round trip.

    We went back to it 2 or 3 times, I don’t like the packed beaches of the popular resorts, so if you like a beach a bit wilder and beautiful, I recommend this one.

    The white sand beach is to the east off Balcon de Europe. It is the prettiest unban beach we saw during our trip. Getting down to it from the town takes some exercise.

    This impressive structure is a nod to the history of the town and it's quite imposing. We used it as a midpoint of a walk out from our accommodation and up towards Maro.

    The good news is, it was downhill on the way back!

    It is multiple coloured, and Makes a great backdrop for photos. It is on a busy main road though so do take care.

    If you want to central for beach as you haven’t got a car and something a bit quieter than this could be a place.

    It is only very small but Central and, as you expect, very beautiful. The water is calm and there are far less people here than most of the beaches around.

    The compromise to this is that it is a little bit difficult to get to and has less facilities than most of the beaches. This makes it ideal for a couple of hours with your towel and your book rather than alongStay with sun loungers, restaurants and so on.

    Depending on what you are looking for exactly this could be the beach for you. It is very centrally located which is a benefit in one way but does mean that it gets very busy in the high season.

    Having said that, it is very lovely and great to spend an hour or two relaxing in such beautiful surroundings. The beach itself is kept very clean and their own excellent facilities everywhere.

    However, we preferred a little more relaxation so we used to go to the beach is a little further out of town as we had a car.
