Even though it has only 250 inhabitants, Las Puntas, played an important role to the economy and development of El Golfo after the small pier was built, from where all the agriculture production departed to every point of Europe. Nowadays this pier belongs to the Hotel de Punta Grande, according to the Guiness Book of Records, the smallest hotel in the world. If you take a look from the pier you might enjoy the nice views to the Roques de Salomor and the Tibajate Natural Special Reserve.

On the welcoming Punta Grande pier you might jump into the sea and swim for a little bit, a very pleasant experience especially during the summer. Other attractive spot in Las Puntas are the Salt works located on the east side of this pier.
