The harbour has changed a lot since Iast visited 12 years ago. The boardwalk didn't exist and I loved it. Loved watching the fish and sitting on the seats provided watching the boats. The children's play area, restaurants, boiler and garden make the whole area...More

Very pretty with a great choice of good quality restaurants. Nice atmosphere, worth a wander to find hidden bars and restaurants. You can walk to Puerto Calero from here. Relatively easy walk. Excellent place to stay. It feels like a real place, not just hotels.
