    La playa in Oliva is generally far quieter than those of its neighbouring towns... seemingly far less appealing to the tourist visitors.... And so, this allows more space, tranquility and freedom to Be with the Sea :D

    There are watersports available, including kitesurfing, which is very popular here. Or, for something far less energetic, how about making sand sculptures???

    Here's one I made earlier.... (see photos)...

    Not exactly one for travellers, but those who live in Oliva and it's surrounding regions. With today's increasing awareness and adaption to the world's changing climate, solar energy is becoming a natural step as a source of power in Spain. A local company has been set up by an Englishman looking to promote this and more information can be found on the website listed below.

    Small family restaurant, with lots of Classic English meals along with Curries and Chinese dishes. Friendly service, although dont visit if you are in a hurry. Cater well for Kids.

    Favorite Dish: Sweet and Sour Chicken with Rice/Chips and Prawn Crackers - having lived here for 4 years, the Chinese can not make sweet and sour sauce but they have it cracked here and the chicken is freshly battered - Curries are really good too
