A 15 to 20 minute stroll takes you through the surrounding farmland, past the low pine forest and sand dunes to the most beautiful blue flag sand beach that runs for around 7 miles.
There are no buildings except a row of old terraced fisherman's dwellings, and just the pine forest and a large lake and bird sanctuary with watching huts.
There are 3 very Spanish restaurant cum bars on the beach over a stretch of around a mile.
Walking along paths through the forest and around the lakes, watching all the many species of birds, then back along the beach to get a drink at a beach bar, then through the pines back to the road is a joy.
You'll pass Los Carmelos, a local family owned and run tapas and main meal bar that has several large barrels of various wines that you help yourself from, and when you pay your bill they ask how many glasses you've had!
