What to see The town's beach, called La Salvé, is one of the longest in northern Spain. The best place to see it is from the viewpoint known as La Caracola, located in the fortress of El Rastrillar. From there, you can see the bay, the town, the lush surrounding countryside… Another popular viewpoint is El Abra del Túnel. Be sure to explore the medieval town centre. You can still see parts of the old defensive walls, and the narrow streets are lined with grand houses dating back to the 16th and 17th century. In the highest part of the town, you'll find Santa María de la Asunción church. Being a port, you simply have to try the succulent fresh fish on offer at the outdoor cafés and restaurants. Active tourism You can enjoy all kinds of water sports like windsurfing and snorkelling or go horse riding and hiking in the surrounding countryside. It has country paths for enjoying fabulous sea views and long beaches of fine golden sand that are ideal for a pleasant stroll. As well as La Salvé, we recommend visiting some of the other nearby beaches such as El Puntal (great for surfing, kitesurfing and windsurfing), La Soledad (a quiet, pebbled beach with lovely views) and El Regatón (a protected area of outstanding beauty). Festivities The most famous is the Battle of Flowers. It takes place on the last Friday in August.
