El Roquete Beach

This pebbly beach has a rough sea and bears significant symbolic value for the residents of Punta del Hidalgo, as this is where the boats set sail to pay homage to the Virgen del Carmen during the festive celebrations in her honour. If you are fortunate enough to come at that time of year, prepare to be fascinated by the beauty and magic emanating from the event.

The beach is located by the Fishermen's Guild, so it is highly recommendable to round off your day by the sea with a plateful of fresh fish – who could resist?

Sunset is the perfect time for a stroll around the area with the fresh sea breeze in your face and the bright colours of the boats and the houses catching your eye.
