What to do in the area
Pilar de Jaravía is close to San Juan de los Terreros. San Juan de los Terreros is a coastal village that belongs to the municipality of Pulpí. It is known for its magnificent beaches, the last ones in Andalusia because the next village north is Águilas – the first town on the coast belonging to the region of Murcia.
Opposite the coast in San Juan de los Terreros there are two small volcanic islets – the Terreros Island-Black Island Natural Monument. The most characteristic monument in the town is San Juan de los Terreros Castle, built in 1764 on a promontory that overlooks a lot of the coastline of Almería and Murcia.
This area has a lot more to offer than just sun and beaches. You can do hiking, there are some nice marked footpathes, one of them starting in San Juan de los Terreros, passing the golf courses and leading to a viewpoint in the Aguilón hills with incredible views, birdwatching, swimming, golf, bike tours, kayak tours, and a lot more.
