Following south/west towards Carboneras, we find the long and peaceful beach of Macenas (see video below for the new Macenas Beach & Golf Resort), guarded by an old tower which rises over the sea, but dominated by a keep, which was built in the early years of the XVI century in heavy stone masonry and is known as Torre el Perulico. A remarkable view can be appreciated from the heights of the keep, which also over-looks the Cala del Pañón, translated as the Cove of Cliffs, and on over the beautiful Sombrerico beach, which can be reached on foot or by bicycle or even, carefully, by car over a winding track that rewards us with more startling views of the sea and the mountain ranges. From here, and continuing south, the coastline becomes wilder and untouched.
It is now an infinite number of small beaches and bays, some almost unreachable, where the only possible access is to leave the road and arrive on foot. The beauty of these hidden beaches can only be compared to their crystal clear water and sea-bottoms, making them a treat for submariners and divers. The Bordonares and El Lance coves are good examples of this immaculate naturescape.
