Parc Natural De La Serra D'irta Reviews & Ratings
This place is a little like walking in the wild lands of Spain. It's wedged between the low mountains and the Mediterranean coast, so has a plethora of unique plant and wildlife. We walked north from Pensicola, south to Alcossebre. Approx 10miles/16km during the course of the day, stopping for lunch a lovely little beach where shaded picnic benches were set out. Highly recommended 😃
It's a beautiful natural park with plenty of paths and trails to follow. It is not only popular with walkers but mountain bikers too. For the most part the trails are marked although some areas are lacking, leading to confusion. There is a downloadable map available but path crossroads could also benefit from a basic map board to work out where to go when combining trails. Phone signal is weak to non existent and you need to take water.
Beautiful natural place, we have now walked there on 3 occasions, a different part of track each time. Coastal track not well signposted but some lovely coves, and nobody else around. Saw some bikes and runners on track to Bodum tower and St Antoni's hermitage. Beautiful coastal views well worth the hike. No facilities at all so make sure you take everything you could need with you.
We found this place by accident and it was fascinating. There's a long gravel road leading all across the park where you can either enjoy the view of the clifs or you can take a swim. Be aware that some of beaches here are kind of dangerous to get into the water but there's a few where there's sand leading all the way to the water making it ideal. There's also not a lot of people here so you can enjoy some privacy.
You will need 4wd or clearance and some serious skills.
