New Edit

 Welcome to fuertenews, 

In the middle of our high season tension mounts as only "wonder woman" is able to access by road some of our most beautiful beaches. For the moment it is just for the six week period but it could become a permanent situation. We are known by many for these beaches being the best in Europe. Not only are tourists affected but also local residents who use the road for access for work and now have a lengthy detour using the new motor way. How much the petitions affect the final decision remains to be seen.

Still beautiful to explore though. If you enjoy walking one can access by foot. Also remember that the lagoons in El Cotillo are much safer for the children to swim in and easily accessible. 

Enjoy the sun.

Take care and have a great holiday.

    Fancy a fresh tasty meal right beside the sea, then this is for you.

    Just walk along towards the harbor to discover great sea front restaurant offering all cuisine. There is plenty of seating outside of which is enclosed with new looking plastic awnings so visibility is still good and it effectively keeps the sea winds off you.
