beautiful lake that is surrounded by gardens. This area looks
straight through to the new beach that has been created with safety
and children in mind. The beach is made up of shallows coves with
breakwaters placed out to sea to stop the waves coming in. This
intern makes for some stunning bathing areas with beautiful imported
white sands. The old castle looks down over Chiringuito’s
Bar that is out on one of the 2 piers that go out into the sea..
You can grab a nice cold cocktail here relax or have a game of
pool. From here you can see the Horse-shoe beach and the marina
area which is about a 10min walk away.
