This linear route begins in the parking lot of the Mil Palmeras urbanization, heading over cliffs to the rubio ravine, which we will cross to walk through Juan Ramón Jimenez Concha Espina streets. Again with views of the sea, we will cross the Campoamor cove in the direction of La Glea beach, skirting the Miguel Caballero marina.
Once located on the aquamarine beach we will observe a formation of about 125,000 years old. In it we can find fossil remains in the sand, large areas of rocks incrusted with mollusks, as well as a landscape of very peculiar flora and fauna, as it is located a few meters from the Punta de la Glea Microreserve, considered one of the areas with the greatest plant wealth on the Oriolan coast, where various native species, some in danger of extinction, grow in the shelter of a ravine.
Our next objective will be the Cabo Roig beach, passing by its marina and watchtower, dating back to the 16th century for defensive purposes against attacks by Barbary pirates. It is a cylindrical construction recognizable by the layer of white lime that hides the original masonry work, today plastered with mortar. The entrance is located three meters high and preserves the original holes, all surrounded by ashlars that make up the edges.
There will be several coves that we still have to explore, such as Capitán, Bosque, Cerrada or La Mosca coves, the latter being a place declared a flora micro-reserve, due to the presence of an important population of the cat-headed jarilla (Helianthemum caput -felis), finding ourselves with views of the Punta Prima beach, ending this coastal itinerary in the parking lot of its renowned restaurant.
