On this 4-hour circular route explore the spectacular coastline east of Hermigua and have the option of walking down to the beach at La Caleta, with its pleasant open-air canopied beach bar (not open on wet days). The walk traverses an area damaged by extreme erosion, with varieties of wolf’s milk cacti and succulents, such as agaves and prickly pear cacti. Take care on the section between waypoint 07 and waypoint 08. The path may be damaged in places, so watch your step! Walking poles are recommended.  

Please note that this walk is unshaded and has 4 steep ascents so please be sure to take sun-screen, a sun-hat, and plenty of water.  You may wish to head out early to avoid the hotest part of the day.
