Welcome to Punta del Hidalgo & Around
Three kilometres northeast, Punta del Hidalgo is a more interesting place, although don’t expect any crumbling cobbles or medieval churches. Like most of the towns in this region, Punta is comparatively modern, its charm being the dramatic ocean location backed by soaring craggy mountains. Stroll along the boardwalk, stopping for a coffee, cerveza (beer) or fishy meal at Cofradia de Pescadores across from the harbour. The whole coastline here is excellent surfing country, with some of the best-quality spots on the north coast packed into a tight area.
