To start with, the going was not too bad. The track was broad and relatively smooth.
However, as I progressed, the track became narrower and the surface is covered with loose stones and rocks. I would have liked to stop more often to appreciate the views but the going was tough and there was a stiff breeze. I needed to concentrate on my cycling but I did stop to photograph this large, isolated ruin on the cliffs which, according to the map, is Casa del Tomate.
Eventually, San Jose came into view. From here the descent is steep, stony and precarious. At the end of the descent, a path leads to Cala de Higuera but the ride had taken longer than expected, so I took no more diversions and headed back from San Jose along the road, but straight into a strong Levante wind.
