The Beach at Ballota: This is a totally natural beach, in the shape of a shell. It is 350 metres in length and located close to Cué. There are spectacular panoramic views to be had from the look out point of the Mirador de la Boriza, immediately above the beach. Also nearby is the Bufón de Ballota. At high tide or in rough seas, sea water shoots up through this crack in the cliffs, tens of metres into the air, making a spectacular sight.
