La Caleta is a small quiet fishing village and resort, with a few bars and restaurants. The two main roads from caleta soon head inland, rather than run along the coast. But you can have a pleasant and scenic walk by heading to Playa de las Americas, along the coast. You have a maintained path in this direction to the next resort, Playa del Duque. The path goes all the way to Los cristianos if you wish to continue.
If you walk in the opposite direction, away from Playa de las Americas, you will find rough trails along the coast to a couple of quiet coves such as Playa de Diego Hernandez used by nudists, non nudists and Hippy bay where you sometimes find a few hippies camped there and also some nude sunbathing on he flat rock shore line of the bay.
Swimming in the sea
Swimming is mainly conducted off the rocks allowing for jumping in or diving off some of them. In the popular spots there are iron ladders making it easy to get out or the sea. Because the area is so rocky the sea is crystal clear and good for snorkling.
Fishing of the rocks
To the north of La Caleta is dramatic open mainly uncultivated countryside that is classified as an area of scientific interest. There are walking trails both along the coast and further inland that stretches up the coast to El Puertito 2 kilometres away, followed by Playa Paraiso a further kilometre. Strong shoes are strongly recomended for walking in this area. The trails also lead to the hippy bay and the quiet sandy beach of Playa de Diego Hernandez
La Caleta has a small selection of bars & restaurants with some excellent fish restaurants. Many of the bars & restaurants are located right on the sea front rocks with majestic views across the cove like bays or out to sea
