Description of Playa Taurito

Playa Taurito, located on the southwest coast , is an elegant, purpose-built resort with an air of refinement which will suit those looking for a tranquil break.

The hotels and accommodation are built on the steep sides of the narrow valley. If the valley bottom is the fabulous lido and park

Largo Taurito Lido

Taurito Lido

Its expansive lido area is particularly attractive and a mini aqua park - for a small entrance fee, you can enjoy sand-free sunbathing, a vast pool, and a palm-dotted ‘island’ complete with bridges and bars.  The pool is sea water  and because of evaporation & topping up from the sea the salt content is high.
