The trip:
One way guided trip that starts in the village of San José and ends at the Faro del Cabo de Gata (lighthouse). The path will take us down to different beautiful beaches such as the most famous in the Cabo de Gata Natural Park, Los Genoveses; a virgin beach with golden sand dunes. This beach is in a valley which has few buildings and no surfaced roads, meaning that its beauty is unspoilt.
We will hike along the shore and head up the hill at the end and continue walking in order to discover small, secluded “coves”, which will reveal themselves one after another. The descent to the different cove will depend on the tides. The coastal views are always spectacular.

Landscape and heritage:
Enjoy the sun and sea breeze walking along the paths of Cabo de Gata Natural Park, with access to extremely beautiful secluded beaches.
Discover the volcanic origins of the coast, with fossilized reefs, petrified lava and beaches where the white rocks contrast with the transparent turquoise waters.
