Natural beach Las Caletillas 🎣
Playa Natural de las Caletillas is a quiet beach where few people come and with enough space to enjoy the sun. Special circular stone walls ensure that you can lie in the shelter of the ever-present wind, it also gives you the private atmosphere as if it is your own place. Since there are no facilities on or at the beach, you can use the beach towels in the apartment. Trash bins are available on the beach. The beach is guaranteed to be quiet and you won't see large crowds of people. So nice and quiet. You can only reach this beach on foot.
- Walk in a northerly direction and follow the path along the garden center and you will automatically arrive at the entrance of the beach.

Calisthenics Jogging & Running Paseo Av. Maritima
For anyone who just wants to take a relaxing walk or enjoy a passionate run, there is a well-constructed and maintained paseo. This can be found near our apartments. The Paseo runs from Salinas del Carmen via El Castillo to Costa de Antigua.
An exceptionally beautiful and varied walking and running route that can be completed in the cool morning.
You can enjoy the fantastic sunrise during your morning workout. An unforgettable running and walking experience that is also possible for those who are not morning people. This is because the sunrise is not too early as it is quite close to the equator. In Costa de Antigua there is a Calisthenics field where you can also find some cardio fitness equipment. Think of a cross trainer and exercise bike. Of course you can use this for free. We would say nice workout 😁
Note: Via the coastal walking and cycling path you can walk within half an hour to the large beaches, marina and the center of Caleta de Fuste (2 km), along the way you will encounter many funny ground squirrels that are mainly supplied with peanuts by tourists. There is street lighting along the route so that you can still walk along the sea late at night.
Those who do not want to walk can use the scheduled bus. Buses run regularly between El Castillo - Costa de Antigua - Airport - Pto. del Rosario bus station. (half hourly service)
