The area, which was originally a fishing village, has developed into a very organized tourist destination. Large hotels, picturesque squares, traditional houses, tourist shops, exotic flowers and palm trees, along with the sea, compose a beautiful landscape for a relaxing holiday.
The area has wild beauty, so do not expect to find quiet beaches with white sand! It is a tourist destination with all the amenities for the visitors but it does not have ideal beaches.
Along the coast there is a large pedestrian street full of bars, restaurants, tall palm trees and benches.
The most famous beach is Playa Jardin, beach with a length of 1 km and black volcanic sand. The bad thing about the seas there is that they have very strong currents that often make swimming impossible.
