On Friday, we walked through the palm groves near La Isleta and down to Cala de Los Toros.
It was bright and breezy and the views of the coast were dramatic.
Down at Los Toros, the sea was rough and the little beach deserted, but we found a sheltered corner for our picnic lunch.
Yesterday, we walked from Playa Monsul to Playa Media Luna, back to Monsul, then over the cliffs to the first of the Calas de Barronal.
The sun made an effort to come out and there were blue skies above us but a blanket of cloud covered the sea. The cooler weather was perfect for walking, though.
The rock formations and geology at the first Calas de Barronal are fascinating.
This was the first time we have walked to this beach. The access is hidden and quite tricky but we will return there as it must be idyllic on a hot, sunny day.
Today has been the worst day of the week with persistent cloud. We decided to try an inland walk. We parked on the coast road before La Isleta and walked up the Barranco del Negro. It was a steep and difficult climb which led us up to over 400 metres to where there is an abandoned farm, Cortijo de la Rellana. I did not take my heavy DSLR camera but took a couple of photos with a little compact camera.
It took us an hour and half but the views were quite spectacular, despite the poor weather. It must be a lovely walk in the spring when the wild flowers are out and the countryside green and fresh.
