This beautiful walk will introduce you to the rugged but beautiful nature of the Cabo de Gata. The route starts on a narrow stony path up to the main road. Follow the main road for a short while and then turn right. It is allowed to climb over the fence that you reach after a short while. The walk then continues on unpaved roads. You do not hear anything outside the song of birds. Along the way you also have a beautiful view of the Mediterranean Sea a few times.
