This is a picturesque area with some nice looking cafes and bars to take a break at. There are also some nice sculptures dotted around the area. Not somewhere I would rush to see but if you are in the area it’s nice enough.

Beautiful area to stroll round with numerous restaurants and bars, especially romantic at night. Prices tend to reflect the view and some care is need to chose the best restaurants from the tourist traps.

Plenty of restaurants, you can find locals and excellent food all around. The Charco is beautiful with all its boats and light. The night view is stunning!

We walked here, it is a very nice place to have a look around and take beautifull pictures with all the little boats. Make your choice off one off the restaurants around and sit back and relax.

It is a pleasant 20 minute walk from El Reducto beach to the restaurant strip of the Charco. On Saturday there is a small farmers market by the church in El Charco de San Gines.
