Cabo de Vela Things to See and Do

follow us

The biggest activity in Cabo de la Vela is simply getting relief from the sun, whether swinging in a hammock or swimming in the teal-blue sea. Walks to natural features along the coast are best done at dawn or late afternoon to avoid the times of scorching sun. The main road follows the curve of the bay. At the point is the faro, or lighthouse. Along the way to the right horizon is El Pil贸n de Az煤car, Hoyos Sopladores (blow holes), Ojo de Agua (a natural pool) and caves to explore. Ask around for a guide to take you to the more hidden treasures. Between town and El Pil贸n de Az煤car is Laguna de Utta, a waterfowl refuge.
