This beach is located in El Turmán area, very close to the natural pools of Las Salinas, although to reach them you have to walk to the mound located further east and then descend to the beach. La Caleta beach is located at the end of a small ravine, to descend to it there are some stairs.
La Caleta beach is made up of rocks and there are several flat areas where you can sit, this beach is a natural volcanic formation that protects the beach itself from the waves.
The best conditions are always at low tide, rising tide or high tide as long as there are not many waves. With big waves and high tide the water can cross the natural barrier. You have to be extremely careful when the tide is going out as all the water in the small bay leaves the beach through a single channel and the currents could be strong in that area.
Even so, it is a quiet place frequented mostly by locals who want to relax and enjoy a quiet swim. In the eastern part of La Caleta beach there is a small path towards a nudist area.
Summer temperatures range from 26ºC to 28ºC, although they sometimes reach 30ºC. In winter, daytime temperatures range from 16ºC to 24ºC. The water temperature in summer is close to 23ºC and 19ºC in winter.
