This morning we parked at the edge of San José and walked to Genoveses beach down the track that leads from Molino del Collado.
From the path there are beautiful views, accentuated by the rich colours and sharp light of this time of year, of the valley looking towards the Sierra del Cabo de Gata.
The path leads through an avenue of agave to ….
…. groves of eucalyptus and pine trees just behind the northern end of the beach.
We then walked the length of the beach and it was good to see many people around taking advantage of the winter sunshine. Some were out riding their horses.
Others were flying kites and ….
…. fishing from the shore.
Our dogs were among many others which enjoyed the walk along the beach.
When we returned to the start of the beach we climbed the cliff path which hugs the headland around to San José. From here, there are also wonderful views ….
…. particularly across the sea to the Morrón de los Genoveses, looking into the light.
