Beware as it can be a rental car wrecker if you are not careful
1) Sotavento, great flat beach easy to walk out and swim in the sea but no protection from the wind & can get sand blasted, & no beach bar nearby.2) Corallejo great for Reynaldo's beach bar, stone circles but sea a bit choppy and rocky. 3) El Cotilo, great for Sottovento restaurant , stone circles sandy beach & catching the sunset.4) Ajuy nice quiet bay walk round to the caves and restaurants by the beach but the black sand is not as nice as the sandy beaches.
But I simply don't understand the appeal of Sottovento. I've tried it several times, tasting numerous dishes and each time walked away either unimpressed or annoyed with myself for trying it again
So if you can recommend a dish at Sottovento, I might try one last time.
Have you tried Mal Nombre, just south of Sotavento? Nice beach (depending on recent weather conditions). Nice beach bar (Tierra Dorada - try the sizzling garlic prawns!). Sunloungers for hire, with some fabric-type windbreaks around them. About 50% naturist on a good day, but need to dress for the beach bar.
To be honest the beach we go to seems to be called a few different names Playa De la Barca is what the sign says of the FV2 We park by the Meliá Gorriones Hotel & walk down from there. Love it when you have to paddle through the water to get to the higher ground when the tide is in watching all the fish swim around you. We have to walk quite a way to get free of the windsurfers though.
Are you wondering about the beach or the food? I doubt there are more then a handful of Spanish restaurants making Italian food to Italian palates. Why would they? They need to sell to their customers
