Beautiful view

Very beautiful in the evenings, sunset times. Many restaurants, good shopping abilities. Beach boulevard is quite long to walk, but worth it.

There are a few cool cafes with great views and lovely food. Get a taxi there or walk along the beach. The shops are good too so a few reasons to enjoy an hour or 2 away from the pool

We visited several towns and villages and they are all built up and crowded. The area around El Faro was quiet and peaceful (might be different in the evening) plenty of bars and restaurants and easy to park in the area.

A very nice area with plenty of shops and placed to eat. A great place to walk and watch people go by. The shops and restaurants are of a much higher quality than you will see in parts of Playa del Ingles.
