Torre del Pirulico.

The walk takes you along a wide unpaved road next to the coast to the Torre del Pirulico. After enjoying the view of this beautifully restored tower, you walk along the coast and then go a little more inland. High on top of a rock you can see a beautiful building from afar. Afterwards you go back towards the sea and you get a view of Paradise Bay. You can descend to Paradise beach and enjoy this hidden gem. However, it is not an easy descent and certainly not recommended with children or for people who are not sure of their feet. You leave the coast and go through the barranco de los Moros to Cuerda La Cachona. Here you start a steep climb to the ridge of La Chacona. You always follow the path over the ridge that rises and falls to the viewpoint at an old observatory. Here you have a beautiful panorama of the sea and the entire surroundings, in clear weather you can even see the Sierra Nevada. Next to the building of the old observatory you start the descent on a dirt road to the starting point.
