The beach on the other side of the cliff is Playa de la Carihuela. It is lovely, the atmosphere changes a bit when crossing the cliff with all the cats. The beaches at La Carihuela are golden and lovely with lots of shells and sea-gulls line up in one spot of the beach. There are pebbles at only one spot at the beach, apart from that the beaches are soft and lovely.

There are lots of cafés and restaurants both on the beach and by the promenade, and myriads of shops and stores, quite a lovely walk. If you take a right turn into the street above the promenade, called Calla Bulto, you will find a lot of shops, some of which are open into the promenade as well. I added a tip on that under "Shopping".

Wherever I am staying, I always head for the La Carihuela beach and hang out in the waves by a palm grove there and collect shells. It is quite lovely and one can walk far into the ocean as it is very shallow.

La Carihuela is famous for its Andalucian sea-food cousine and it is here that the tourist boom began in the 1950s and people like the members of the Rat Pack apparantly frequented La Carihuela.

I added more pictures from La Carihuela in a travelogue. When I plan my trips abroad I want to see as many different pictures as possible beforehand, so that is why I take many pictures and add them in a travelogue and hope they might be of use to other people planning their trip.
