If you're a movie buff, there are interesting excursions to Tabernas, where “Spaghetti Western” movies were filmed with actors like Clint Eastwood, Bud Spencer and Lee Van Cleef or directors like Sergio Leone. Some of these movies are "For a Fistful of Dollars", "The Good, the Ugly, and the Bad", "The Four Truanes", etc.
Across the road is El Playazo beach, with the castle of San Ramón (a battery of defense of the coastline that dates back to the 18th century). It is a beach without constructions and wild, like many of the other beaches in the Cabo de Gata Natural Park.
You should not miss the Mirador de la Amatista, the Isleta del Moro, Los Escullos, San José and such well-known and spectacular beaches as Los Genoveses, Mónsul ...
If you decide to visit the coast to the east side, you will find a town called Aguamarga, with a fine sandy beach, restaurants and a very pleasant atmosphere. Just past Aguamarga and before reaching Carboneras, a mandatory stop is the beach of the dead. It is a straight beach of more than 1 km with crystal clear waters and fine sand.
Between Las Negras and Aguamarga, there is the cove of lead. It is a very nice beach that you have to walk to. It is made of stones and has a bit of vegetation, which makes it very pleasant.
« El cortijo del fraile » is also known for filming "Bodas de Sangre" in 1981 and is a 10-minute drive from Rodalquilar.
