Playa La Escalera

Unlocking the Secrets of Playa La Escalera: A Pristine Beach with Breathtaking Access via Steep Stairs

Playa La Escalera, also known as Playa del Aguila, is a secluded virgin beach with fine golden sand. To reach the beach, visitors must navigate a steep staircase, which lends the beach its name. This staircase, partly made of concrete, has some challenging steps. It’s best to visit during low tide as high tide can submerge most of the beach. Due to its remote location, La Escalera retains its untouched beauty, with surrounding cliffs and rock formations enhancing the area’s natural splendor.


Playa La Escalera is situated in the municipality of La Oliva, nestled in a cove to the south of El Cotillo. To reach it, one must take the dirt road from El Cotillo to Piedra Playa for about 4 km.
