Playa de Alojera

Beach in Alojera

Pretty Playa de Alojera is no secret, but it’s rarely crowded. The sweeping, silty black beach is ideal for swimming – at least when there’s no swell; if a big swell is running, keep well away from the water. Cliffs, rock formations and natural pools offshore lend a sense of drama here. It's past Alojera, at the end of a nausea-inducing and seemingly endless series of hairpin curves.
