Primera vez que vamos y las vistas son espectaculares, un sitio que no todos conocen pero que vale la pena visitar, las aguas son frias pero cristalinas. more »First time we go and the views are spectacular, a place that not everyone knows but worth visiting, the waters are cold but crystal clear.
Nous sommes revenus 24 ans plus tard sur l'ancien village du ClubMed qui a laissé nature reprendre ses droits. Toujours magique et unique. more »We came back 24 years later on the old village of the ClubMed who let nature take its course. Always unique and magical.
Loads of people and traffic on small roads, possibly nice out of peak season or if you arrive very early and go for a long walk away from the crowds.
This is a magical place to spend a day wandering. Great restaurant views and paved paths. Pretty affordable, given the location, too.
