Starting in the sandy Cabopino car park, the route follows the boardwalks next to the beach and sand dunes. Then, for about 2 km, the trail passes through pleasant streets, crossing the A7 and up to the E15. It crosses over the E15 into unspoilt countryside, where there are irises in springtime. There are some gradients and some rough ground. After a group rest on the crest of a hill overlooking the sea, the route will work its way back down to the coast past the picturesque lakes of a golf course. Crossing the A7 again, using a narrow foot bridge, the path arrives at the beach and the walk continues a short distance on the sand to the Puerto Cabopino marina. The finish is back on the beach near the car park.

 

This is a joint country and hill walk, and as it is the last walk of the season everybody is invited to have a lunch together in Cabopino Port. After the walk we will go to Andy's Beach Bar for a casual lunch. People can order for themselves or we can make a group order for the whole table. It's flexible. All we need in advance is an indication of whether or not you will be at the lunch so we can advise the restaurant of numbers, but nothing needs to be pre-ordered or prepaid. We hope this is acceptable to everybody, just leave us a note in the comments box when you make your reservation.

 

Dogs: unfortunately this walk is not suitable for dogs as there is a narrow foot bridge over a very busy road as well as a significant distance where they would have to be on the lead.
