Last night we could smell spring in the air and today, at last, the cold wind has dropped and the temperature rose above 20C. It has been very sunny recently but for 3 weeks we have had chilly, northerly winds which have resulted in very cold nights with the occasional frost.
This morning we walked from Rodalquilar to Cala del Carnaje in warm sunshine. Coming from the direction of Las Negras, we pulled in and parked at the next turning on the left after El Playazo, just before the Hotel Naturaleza.
The camino heads towards the sea and looking back there are lovely views of the valley, Rodalquilar and the mountains beyond. The road forks and you can carry on up to the Torre de los Lobos or turn right, as we did, and take the track down to Cala del Carnaje.
This is a stony beach and because there are so many sandy beaches with better access nearby, we doubt if it ever gets busy but there are some impressive views of the coastline.
We are sure that there are some circular walks if you continue around the cliffs but because of time we retraced our route back.
