Been going to this area a few years now but never explored La Carihuela until our last visit in August. Loads of nice restaurants and bars can be found just one street behind the main promenade.

Beautiful beach with great chiringuitos along the promenade, dotted with childrens play areas. Never overcrowded, except on a Sunday when all the Spanish families head down for the day.
