We catch a ride on the tender to town and wander several blocks to the ferry landing, where there are buses to Playa Flamenco (Flamenco Beach), rated the third most beautiful in the world by TripAdvisor in 2014. The beach has shallow turquoise water, white sand, calm swimming areas, and diving sites, stretching for a mile along a horseshoe-shaped bay.

Walking through town to the ferry pier (bus stop)
Arriving at the beach 15 minutes later
Walking the beach
Checking out the abandoned tanks
And, as it gets toward noon and the crowd picks up (still not many people), we catch the shuttle back into town and find a spot for a fish and chips, beer, and a view.
Lunch on the bay
What a great, relaxing day, setting a good precedent for the week!
