After a hard day sunbathing there is nothing better than a bit of retail therapy and dining. This place offers exactly that in abundance. Great shops with designer brands and fantastic restaurants.

The ocean water there was very beautiful and very blue. The Faro was nothing special but you can walk along the ocean and enjoy the view and get good pictures.

The lighthouse is currently under renovation so you cannot enter. Lovely area for tourists to watch the surfers and stroll along the promenade where you can see the sand sculptures and lizards basking in the sun in the archaeological site on the beach.

We stayed near the lighthouse, which was perfect. Sea, beach, shopping (many brand shops), restaurants, great beach line walk (even for wheelchairs), close to the bus station, and best of all, not so crowded as Playa del Ingles.

Really nice place to visit. Loads of restaurants and shops to visit. Some high end hotels as you walk down the seafront. Very relaxing place.
