Playa del Canal.

The Atlantic Ocean is permanently pounding here on the Costa Verde and has caused large underground tunnels in the limestone due to erosion. When the water is pushed into the tunnels with the flood, you first hear the air displacement and then the sea water spouts meters high into the air. The hike goes along several of these bufones along the edges of the cliffs to a large gorge. Here you can only go inland. You arrive at a beautiful path that takes you to a hidden gem, the beach of Playa del Canal. There you can relax, swim or enjoy your picnic. After visiting the beach, walk through rugged thickets to get to the viewpoint on the Islote Horcado de Cueva islet. It is best to return via the same route to the path of the way there. From here you follow a beautifully maintained walking path until you reach the path of the way there. A little further you deviate from the path to view a very large bufone. From this gigantic blowhole you return to the starting point.
