First of all, Arillas is blessed with a beautiful setting in a fertile, green valley, with a stream running down from Kavadades and Magoulades. The surrounding hills are full of green-silver olive groves, sloping down towards the shore. The seaside itself is dominated by cliffs dropping down to a golden sandy beach and crystal clear waters. The main boulevard of Arillas is a couple of hundred meters wide and this is where access to the beach is easy. Along the boulevard you will find nice restaurants serving local homemade food, mediterranean cuisine and of course fresh fish. There are also a couple of nice cafes and beach bars with great sea views.
Both to the north and to the south, the beach extends for hundreds of meters, flanked by high cliffs of clay, offering privacy for nature lovers but also a natural cosmetic! Indeed, many people use this clay to cover their whole bodies with it. When you wash it off afterwards, your skin feels silky smooth.
The beach consists of fine golden sand, ideal for building sandcastles and all kinds of sculptures. The downside is that it’s so fine that it tends to stay with you for a long time after you leave the beach! The waters off Arillas beach are shallow and perfect for children to play in with safety.
