Every Wednesday and Sunday at 11:00 we play petanque at the goalposts on the beach below the Chinasol apartments.  Throw out your bowling ball and join us!


Every Thursday at 10:00, we gather at the "helicopter pad" at the Friday marketplace location, so we can share seats in cars for transportation into the mountains and hiking walks.  Thomas leads the group and Marita goes last, keeping track of everyone.


This is not all...there is a lot more for the active person to do.  Coming down here does not mean you have to lie on the beach all day!  The following section has a lot of activities you can choose from, depending on the season and weather.  The Tourist Information office has much more information if you need it.  You will not have a dull moment here!
