A lovely looking part of Benidorm, well preserved and maintained with wonderful views. Cafe Bars available here as well as some local craft stalls. Worth the uphill walk just for the views alone

Spent best part of an afternoon supping beer and having a snack here,whilst listening to the wonderful music. The accordion player was fantastic and lots of people were dancing and singing along. Brilliant!

We all loved it up here, stopped at a cocktail bar where they gave us straws about three foot long that soon turned into swords. loved the fact it seemed to be the place to go for hen parties so it was all good to go. great drinks great fun, and even funnier seeing pavement artists making people look worse...
