HIKING HOLIDAY COSTA DE LA LUZ
Day 1. Arrival day. Transfer from airport to your accommodation. Depending on the flight and where you arrive, there is still time for a walk to explore the neighborhood.
Day 2. Zahora - Trafalgar - los Caños de Meca - Barbate: a coastal walk. Partly along steep cliffs with a very nice view over the Atlantic Ocean, in clear weather even to Africa; the houses of Tangier can be seen. We can have lunch at los Caños de Meca (sandy beach, freshwater springs, cliffs, rocks) and take a refreshing dive there, before we continue. Through the nature park La Breña (pine forests), along the steep cliffs, to the beach of Barbate (tuna village). There we are picked up, and brought back to the shelters.This walk is medium-heavy and 12.5 km with the highest point being the cliffs 100 meters above the ocean.Duration walk 4 to 5 hours
Day 3: Cork oak forests at Facinas. We drive to Facinas, can visit a small village church : that is where our walk begins. We walk past the old cork oaks, which are still scaled every nine years with donkeys. We therefore walk on a donkey path, winding, stony, sometimes we have to jump a stream of water. We have a view of a valley with cork oak forests on the other side. We picnic somewhere in a nice spot and then walk back. If necessary, we can also have lunch in Venta Nene after our walk. That is very Spanish, they are lovers of bullfighting, there is also a small bullfighting arena behind the restaurant..
Then we can return to Zahora, but we can also visit the town of Tarifa. Tarifa is only 14 km from Africa, so beautiful view of Morocco and many boutiques with Moroccan stuff.
The highest point where we walk here is 213 mtr the walk is 8 km medium. Duration walk 4 hours
Day 4: a day in Cádiz with a boat trip and a bodegabezoek. In the morning with guide we can take a walk through the city, then you will of course see the most beautiful places! Then free time and lunch (for example tapas on the market), and then we walk together to the port. Then we sail with the ferry in half an hour over the bay of Cádiz to the other side, where we can visit a bodega in Puerto de Santa Maria, a guided tour with sherry tasting there. Very Andalusian! Then we sail back and drive back to the shelters.
Day 5: From mountains to beach. This hike starts at the high rocks of the Sierra de la Plata, rather inaccessible crests, spectacular for photographing. The earth path changes into a sandy path, the vegetation changes and we now walk through pine forests. There are beautiful vistas on the ocean and on the mountain ridges. Then we reach a 'valley', a gorge where you imagine yourself in a western. We walk past him up to a road, which we cross and follow a steep descending path ending at the beach. Boulders in the sea, possibility of swimming and walking along this wild coast.
Then we walk back to the road and after a short while we arrive at a small charming bar where we can have a fish and drink a beer / wine, with that beautiful view of Morocco. Then we walk back to our starting point and drive to Zahora.
We start at 450 meters altitude and it is an 8 km long walk
Duration walk 4 hours
Day 6: From the lighthouse to Baelo Claudia. We start near Atlanterra, a beautiful hill with capitals, along which in May / June tuna fish swim towards the Mediterranean Sea. That was the case 2000 years ago, when Baelo Claudia was built. This Roman city lived off the tuna; the 'factory' is still well preserved, as is the forum, the old streets, the roman baths and even the theater. We walk past a goat farm and a vulture hatchery (buitre leonardo) through a piece of asphalt to a secret road that brings us to the top of a walking garden. As if you ended up in the desert. We walk down the dune, visit the beautiful beach of Bolonia and visit the Roman city. Then a lunch in Bolonia, a small hamlet where we can enjoy a delicious meal in bar Otero with a view of the sea . Maybe time for a dive, before we walk back to Zahora.
This is a 14.5 km walk with heights of 300mtr medium heavy.
Duration walk 6 to 7 hours.
Day 7: La Muela, Santa Lucia, Vejer de la Frontera. First we get a cup of coffee offered on the mountain . It is an incomparable view from his cottage. It is a route that runs downwards, through a roman acuaduct with waterfalls and a natural 'yakuzi', . We continue our way, which climbs on the other side of the road uphill to Vejer de la Frontera: the most beautiful white Andalusian village. There we take a tour , with beautiful flowers in the patios, the old city wall and an old city tower climb. Then we take some free time. we will give some tips for lunch, although it is also nice to get lost and find a hidden restaurant. Then we walk back again and drink a nice drink with on the mountain. And then back for the last night in Zahora.
