In the Los Escullos there are several swimming areas. At the entrance of the neighborhood, adjacent to the hotel and campground there are the Playa del Arco Beach, this beach is quite large, 350 meters long and 40 meters wide, with gravel sand; it is located on the right end of the fossil dune Escullos.
Past the stony dune area there are several coves spread around the Punta del Esparto known as the Embarcadero coves, because it is a good place to anchor a boat, it was used to load esparto and other materials to ships. Nowadays these coves are currently being widely used by divers, because funds have a very rich aquatic life, there are funds with rock and Posidonia algae, with lots of fish.
Driving along the road parallel to the coast we came to the Cala Piedra Galera, this beach is made of gravel, his background is very rocky, ideal to practice snorquel or diving. This beach is easily accessible, because we can park the car next but not recommended to go with children as much stone don't let them enjoy the swim.
If we follow the road, south direction, we will find more coves like Cala Cortada, Cala las Hermanicas and Cala Tomate, but all they are under road level with access complicated and lengthy. We recommend visit it only if we are in good shape and as a way to enjoy unique landscapes and wildlife.
