You couldn’t wish for better sea views than those waiting to be appreciated from the upper levels at The Castle; it’s handy for the beach too!
Alcaufar is a really pretty village with a lovely little beach, shallow waters and rocks on which to climb or sunbathe. It is extremely child friendly: the bay is very shallow and there are many flat rocks and rock pools to explore. It is a village almost untouched by mass tourism. The small hotel adjacent to the beach is a nice shady spot in which to relax and have a drink or lunch. There is also an excellent restaurant, Piccolo Mundo, which offers great sea views and an enticing menu, and there is a small local shop in the village. The bustling resort of S’Algar is a short walk away across the cliffs
