QUIET BEACH HOLIDAYS
Enjoy a beach with 3.2kms of soft white sand, clear blue warm sea and great places to pop in for a drink along the colourful promenade.
Several years ago the Playa Poniente had a name for being just a bit dull. Not any more, today the beach with it´s gorgeous wide promenade have altered the area from being like a frumpy old nana, to a younger vibrant and buzzing place that is absolutely worthy of your attention. A perfect destination for a quiet beach holiday.
Plenty of room on the beach, when compared to the Levante, even in summer. The road is one-way and is restricted to traffic with a sensible speeed limit of just 20kph.
Being less of a hot spot when compared to the Playa Levante makes for more room to spread yourself out a bit without the need to get sand kicked in your face. Yes, the Poniente offers more room to roam, more room to swim and more room to stroll hand in hand along the shore with your loved one, or someone else´s loved one! Between the park by the harbour and Cala Poniente at the far end you have three kilometres of pristine beach, a curving promenade and board walk to enjoy.
EATING & DRINKING
The choice of dining options are numerous, ice cream parlours, café bars and bistros plus superb Pizzerias. For fine dining you will find award winning Spanish restaurants (big on Paella and fish). Whether you fancy a Chip Butty or a seafood feast direct from the bay, you will find it along the Poniente. The best restaurants are worth the walk to the far end of the beach known as Cala Poniente.
There are some excellent shoppping opportunities to be had. You will find Jakarta a superb accessories shop, Ale-Hop, some independent boutiques and a long established swimwear shop. Even a Carrefour mini supermarkets, a brand new chemist and a big sports store.
To really get the most out of the Poniente it is best to walk or paddle from end to end at least once! We highly recommend doing a barefoot paddle all the way along the waters edge, then enjoy an ice cream or drink at the Portus Massai just past the Delfin Hotel as a reward. It really is smashing!
