Caragol is an amazing beach. Very peaceful and with a stunning view
over the turquoise sea.
The beach is some

light. In the back of the beach there are some sand dunes with
The shallow water is crystal clear
and has the most fantastic shades of blue and turqouise.

the visitors have to bring plenty of drinking water. On the plus

Plenty of space for playing and shallow water makes the beach
very child friendly but the parents also have to consider the 30
minutes walk in rugged terrain.
No water sports.
