Along this path we once again found many wild orchids. We have recently published several orchid photos but not one of the bee orchid, and so here is a fine specimen we saw along our walk.
Behind the beach at Cala de Enmedio can be seen one of the botanical glories of Almeria, the Cistanche phelypaea. This beautiful parasitic plant is becoming more and more uncommon. This interesting specimen at the southern end of the beach was not quite in flower.
But later, under the cliffs at the north end of the beach, we found another which was in full bloom.
Despite the fine weather, 23C, and it being a public holiday weekend the beach was almost deserted.
