On the way to San Pedro there are lovely views of the spectacular coastline of the Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata.
Despite the fine weather, the beach was very quiet with just a few young, naked hippies and day visitors.
The sea was warm and perfect for swimming.
The hippies live in tents and shacks behind the beach.
There are many quaint constructions built from stone, cane and driftwood.
Most have dogs but they seem to be well loved and cared for.
Behind the beach is a small, landlocked valley where there are some more little shacks and lush vegetation watered by natural springs.
