On the footpath between Puerto del Carmen and Puerto Calero, after about 1.5 km, this section called Barranco del Quiquere cliff is about 800 m long and offers secluded bays, sunbathing areas and hidden caves. It is only advisable to go here during low tide.
The Barranco del Quiquere area is also particularly popular with naturists.
Like most areas on the south-east coast, the Barranco del Quiquere usually has only a few waves.
From the top of the cliffs, a staircase and to the north and south other, more risky climbing passages are leading down to the water, where you can find and choose your quiet and more or less hidden spot for your stay.
Entering the water partly is not very easy and the wearing of bathing shoes is rather recommended because of the occasional sea urchins.
To get to the Barranco del Quiquere by car, turn off the road between the villages of Puerto del Carmen and Puerto Calero after about 1.5 km on the unpaved road towards the sea. ( keep straight towards sea intil you reach carpark). From there you will see a path that takes you down to the pedestrian trail that connects Puerto del Carmen with Puerto del Calero and a sign indicating you arrived at Barranco del QuiQuere. You can either walk around towards the little cove and head left where you will find some nice spots to swim at low tide or head up the stairs (go left towards Puerto del Carmen) untill you find a steep set of stairs that takes you down to some great swimming and sunbathing areas.
No sunbeds or umbrellas, no toilets, no trash bins and also no first aid station, only crystal clear water, pure nature and often also hardly other visitors awaits you there.
