La pointe de La Escaleta est élevée (70 m), escarpée et porte une tour.

A partir de cette pointe, la chaîne de hautes falaises nommées "sierra Helada" ou "rochers de Arabi" s'étend vers le NE sur une longueur de 3,5 MN. Ces falaises de couleur rougeâtre, qui s'élèvent jusqu'à 190 m, sont à pic sur la mer et en pente douce vers l'extérieur.

Deux îlots, au pied des falaises, sont difficiles à distinguer.
