After a week of levante, today it was calm, the sky cloudless and the light clear. We went to San Jose and parked just below the old windmill at the top of the town and walked down the path to Los Genoveses beach.
There are wonderful views of the valley of Los Genoves as you descend.
Soon we passed fields of chumbos.
After walking through an avenue of pine trees, we arrived at a grove of eucalyptus trees just behind the beach.
The beach was virtually deserted but the sea looked inviting and the water is still warm enough for a swim.
On the return walk there are good views looking back towards the old windmill.
On the way home we stopped at La Isletta. In the photo, you can see twin volcanic peaks. The larger of these was the main volcano and the smaller, a subsidiary.
