In the vicinity of the resort, there is a huge selection of interesting natural attractions. One of the most unusual is the rock with the frightening name of Devil's Bridge.

Another interesting geological formation can be seen near the English harbor. Here there is a rock Pillars of Hercules. It approaches the coast closely and serves as a natural protection from the wind. At the foot of the rock, there is a very nice and quiet beach. These places are very popular among fans of scuba diving. Once, during another volcanic eruption, hot lava reached the coastline and, after touching the cool sea water, quickly cooled down. This led to the formation of small natural caves, which are now home to exotic fish and other marine life.
