Beaches > La Caleta

The fishing village of La Caleta is home to several bathing areas such as La Puntilla, La Punta, El Cabezo...

Traditional bathing area of the small coastal town of La Caleta. It is a small and thin rocky strip, sheltered from the bay, where there are numerous restaurants and you can taste excellent seafood. Of easy access the coastal promenade borders the whole area. It is a very assiduous bathing area for residents.

Almost hidden, next to the small fishing village of La Caleta, its name evokes its former status as a refuge for fishermen.

Bathing areas: La Puntilla, La Punta, El Cabezo, El Muelle or Varadero.

Before swimming, look at the signs on the beach.

Red flag: no swimming.

Yellow flag: caution.

Green flag: swimming conditions are good.

Even if you see no apparent reason for the bathing ban, respect the rules.

If you want to swim, do it parallel to the shore, so you won't stray from the coast.

Beware of battlelines, floats, etc.... they can drag you out to sea without you noticing.

Respect the areas marked out with buoys for other activities (jet skis, small boats...)

Do not dive without checking the depth of the water and if there are rocks in the area.

Before going out to sea, watch the weather. The wind and sea can change abruptly on the coast.

If you are going to walk in rocky areas, wear appropriate footwear to avoid slipping and be very careful with sea urchins.

If you find yourself in trouble, never swim against the current, wait for it to lose intensity and let yourself be carried by the current, avoiding areas where the waves break.

If you see someone in distress at sea or notice a delay in the return of a family member or friend, immediately call 1-1-2.

If you are not an expert in water rescue, do not jump in to help anyone. Call 1-1-2

The sun has very beneficial effects on our body, stimulating the formation of vitamin A and D, as well as contributing to the improvement of our mood. With an average of 300 days of sunshine a year, it is normal that we try to enjoy it, but remember that if you want to avoid sunburn, sunstroke or irreversible damage, you should take a series of precautions.

Use protective creams with ultraviolet filters with a factor greater than 15. Sunscreen should be applied every two hours.

Clouds reduce the amount of the sun's rays but many of these rays pass through them. So you should also protect yourself on cloudy days.

Hats and sunglasses with UVA and UVB protection are recommended, trying to avoid the hours of highest solar radiation (between 12 noon and 4 pm).
