Expert review of Abades

An unspoilt east coast beach way off the beaten track.

Anyone looking to completely escape the tourist trail should head to the east coast settlement of Abades.

The road passes a small development of new houses before ending in an oversized car park at the coast where a path scrabbles over rocks to a golden, sandy cove and sheltered bay. Beyond the bay, sand dunes are frequented by a handful of naturists.

Expert tips: 
On the headland is an abandoned military outpost and leper colony whose construction was interrupted by the Second World War and so it was never completed or occupied.
