  El Castillo seen from the beach
by Maria_75

There is a bigger beach between El Castillo and Templo del mar. It's a bit tricky to get to this beach so there are not so many tourists here. You can either climb down the mountainside, or you can go swimming or climbing over the rocks from the small beach.

It's really not so difficult to get there, and it's worth it just to escape the crowds. You also have an incredible view up to the castle from here. Unfortunately they were building some stairs from behind El Castillo and down to the big beach when I was there. So then this beach will not be as quiet anymore.
