You are spending time enjoying the sun and sea views on your terrace while organizing your day. If you don’t feel like leaving Residential Resort Cumbre del Sol, you can go to the beach, play a game of tennis, go horseback riding, pamper yourself at the salon, do your shopping at the supermarket, or eat at one of the many bars or restaurants. You can also opt to stretch your legs while admiring the stunning landscape, but maybe you’ve already walked all the Cumbre del Sol trails. No worries, because here we’ll leave you with some other routes close by that you’ll quickly fall in love with.
Let’s begin my heading south and making a stop at the Albir lighthouse, where you can park your vehicle in a lot at the entrance of the natural park. At the beginning of this 5 km trail – completely paved – there is an information point, public toilets and picnic tables. This is a simple 5 km route that offers great views of the coast of Altea and the cliffs that end at the lighthouse, where you can visit the interpretation center. If you still feel like more adventure, you can take the path near the lighthouse that goes down to the mine or follow the path that leads to the highest point of Serra Gelada (438 m): Alt del Governador.
The Torre de les Caletes route is in the Serra Gelada Natural Park, but a little further south as we are in Benidorm. We advise you to leave your vehicle at the Levante beach as there is no parking at the starting point of this trail: Punta del Pinet. This road is asphalted and will get you to the Punta de les Caletes, where you’ll find a tower with the same name. In addition, it passes through l’Almadraba and Tio Ximo coves, where you can take a dip or stop to rest for a while. This walk borders the coast and can be done by people of all ages.
Continuing on our way, we’ll leave our car at the El Torres beach (Villajoyosa) so we can join the Sendero de la Costa (Coastal Track), about 7.5 km round trip. This excursion is particularly pleasant because it passes by various coves, such as Racó del Conill, where you can take a refreshing dip, until you reach Finestrat. Finestrat is the ideal place for a swim on a fine sand beach or to taste several of the typical Valencian dishes in one of many different restaurants by the sea.
We can promise, none of these wonderful hiking options close by your home will disappoint. All you have to do is choose your next destination, put on your good walking shoes and start exploring nature while also respecting the environment.
