Punta Largo beachDeze pagina in Nederlands
Punta Largo is a small bay near Las Indias on the western side of the southern tip of the island.
It is used by local fishermen and as a weekend and holiday homes by people living elsewhere on the island.
Until 2008 there was also a bar/restaurant and a wooden hut on the rock just off the beach. Unfortunately some autocratic public department decreed that these structures must go. Early in 2008 the restaurant was closed and demolished. Now we are waiting to see if and when the rest of the huts will be removed. The locals are afraid that even the small chapel will be destroyed so that some soulless burocrat can put a tick in the box.
Some of these photographs were taken on a cloudy, blustery day ... it was still warm enough for shorts and T-shirt.
