The area is rural so if you want sand and wall to wall people this is not for you, if however, you appreciate rural locations and activities this is a great location, and the hotel provide bicycles free! Plenty of places to eat locally if you look for them at a competitive price, beaches nearby at Playa La Aldea (not sandy). Loads of walks and routes to the mountains for walking, biking or driving - you need to be alert on the narrow roads whatever your method of transport.

It's very rural. Not touristy which we like but it does mean the restaurants are few and not very varied. Peaceful town. Very windy mountain roads take you over an hour on the bus and sometimes this journey was scary. Beach was very pretty and the port of Morgan is a good place to visit.

Beaches

Running to the south of the harbour you will find the dark sands of the town beach or, just around the headland to the north, you will find the small secluded cove and clear calm waters of El Puerto Beach.

Surrounded by natural scenery and perfect for swimming and diving, are the remote west coast beaches and clear waters of Gui-Gui, Tasartico and Tasarte.

Things to Do

Strolling through the village you can see the reconstructed shops and school house of days gone by and demonstrations of traditional farming techniques at the living museums (Museo Vivo). You can also visit the working La Ladera water mill and museum to learn the aged systems and milling process of the flour and water mills.

Approx 5km south of the town is the Cactualdea Park, a large botanical garden with cacti from all around the world, an interesting Guanche Cave and a Canarian restaurant.

A number of festivities take place during the first two weeks of September, not least the lively Fiesta del Charco where people come from all over the island to (attempt) to re-enact the aboriginal fishing technique of catching fish with their bare hands.

Out and About

The charming, rural town of La Aldea is surrounded by national parks with spectacular vistas. The peaks and ravines of the Roque Nublo natural park and the pine forests of the Tamabada Natural Park and the Inagua Integrated Nature Reserve provide plentiful opportunities for hiking, walking, climbing, cycling and bird watching.

Nearby Attractions

The south coast is just 30 minutes drive away where you could take boat trips from the marina at Puerto Mogan (32km), have fun at the Lago Taurito water park (34km), relax on the gorgeous white sands in the sheltered by of Amadores (41km) or visit the lively and popular beach resort of Puerto Rico (42km).
