El Ruso Naturist beach 
It’s a naturist beach emanating peace and tranquility, also known as Lance Nuevo Beach. This cove, nestled between cliffs only 800 meters from the center of La Rábita, features natural springs, which make it an area of high ecological value. Quiet with a low level of occupancy, its sands are dark and its waters crystal clear. A magnificent spot for diving. It can only be reached by walking along the trail that starts from the access road to La Rábita, in the high area, next to a villa. The effort is well worth it because the scenery is spectacular. El Ruso Beach is actually two coves connected by a narrow strip of shore, but most people camp in the second cove, which is much more sheltered. The beach was renamed El Ruso in honor of Basilio Lukianov, a Russian lieutenant who fled the Soviet Union in 1921 and settled there, living off the land and assisting both farmers and fishermen. The locals grew so fond of him that they still bring flowers to the place.
