Monsul beach is the last one along the beautiful coastline from San Jose to the Faro de Cabo de Gata. It is famous for being featured in many films, notably the beach scene with Sean Connery and Harrison Ford in one of the Indiana Jones Movies. It is a popular beach but because it is in the Parque Natural the ecosystem of the dunes is protected and no building is allowed.
The beach is a long wide curve of sof t sand with striking rock formations and rugged cliffs. Behind the beach, clumps of agave and palmetto frame the imposing backdrop of the Sierra del Cabo de Gata.
