This is an interesting walk up to the Dam, it is relatively easy although the climb up can seem like a slog, but stick with it. Trainers or boots and don't forget the water and camera.
This walk starts at the church in Mala, this is very easy to find. Leave Charco del Palo and when you get to the T junction beside the Arepera and Don Quixote Restaurant turn right, pass the Farmacia and a further 400 metres you will see some unusual signs Blue with a figure walking down, turn left just past these and a 100mtrs further on you will come to the church. Wpt1 park you car here and continue along the roadway which soon turns into a dirt road. Cross the green bridge Wpt2 and continue straight ahead passing a couple of villas right and left. Now the hard bit begins but just take it nice and slow. Continue until you reach a large open plateau with some buildings off to the right Wpt3, follow the distinctive track across towards a large sign saying Danger!!
Just to let you know that Reiner’s Pub in Charco del Palo is now closing on a Sunday. The main holiday season for Charco del Palo is between September and Easter so as things are now beginning to slow down a little bit Reiner has decided its time for everyone to have the day off, including himself, so Sunday it is. The rest of the week the Pub opens from twelve midday till late for you to enjoy delicious lunch time snacks, including my famous burgers, freshly made omelettes and grilled sandwiches plus other bits and pieces.
Sorry to tell you this, but the Health and Beauty Salon in Centro Commercial, Charco del Palo has closed. I think she must have emptied the unit over the weekend, because she was there on Saturday. BUT……Aura Maria is now setting up her own business doing Manicures and Pedicures and she is happy to come to your home or holiday accommodation to pamper and paint your fingers and toes. Her prices are very reasonable see details below
* Manicure 10€
* Manicure & nail decoration 13€
* Pedicure with nail decoration & massage 15€
Got the winter blues? Feeling the cold? Yearning for Charco del Palo? Want to be Nude? Oh dear, you need a holiday! Its not to late to get something booked, Ok, so Easter is just around the corner and flights always increase around the public holidays, but its still worth checking the budget airlines and some of the others, you may be surprised at the prices.
So what's available at the moment? As we speak there are several apartments on the seafront prices starting from 40€ per day + cleaning fee (one days rental).
