The castle is an excellent place to start your exploration of the old town, which juts out into the warm waters of the Mediterranean.

However, it is the beaches which really cause a stir with visitors. There are many miles of uninterrupted sand running away to the north of the town for 7km, much of which is lined with a smart new promenade.

The resort is flat & easily accessible for both old & disabled. You will not be disappointed, especially if you want to keep away from the brits abroad, English is rarely spoken which we loved. 10 out of 10

The apartment is as lovely as it looks in the photographs. It is comprehensively equipped with everything you'd need from a corkscrew to a bike. We had lunch on the terrace most days looking out to sea. There are plenty bars and restaurants within walking distance and a good regular bus service if you want to go a bit further and don't want to drive. Pablo who met us on arrival was very helpful and explained everything to us. Cannot fault this place at all.

Thoroughly recommend.
