Like other coastal hamlets, Agua Amarga started out in the 18th century as a tuna-fishing port. These days, as perhaps the most pleasant village on the Cabo de Gata coast, it attracts lots of visitors, although it remains less developed than San José. One of the coast's best beaches is just to the north: the dramatically named Playa de los Muertos (Beach of the Dead), a long stretch of fine gravel bookended with volcanic outcrops.
