Cala de San Pedro

San Pedro is an isolated cove which can only be reached by a cliff footpath from my village, Las Negras or by boat. The colours of the Mediterranean are fabulous here in the Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata, Almeria, Southern Spain and the aloe vera, cactii and trees behind the beach provide foreground interest and add colour. 151 more words
