The beaches on this blog can all be reached from walking south of Las Negras. We set off this morning from the village following the coastal path.
We mentioned on an earlier blog this week the wild flower, Viola arborescens but did not include a photo. Bushy clusters of it are now in flower all along the coastal path.
The first beach south of Las Negras is Cala del Cuervo. There is a camp site behind this beach so it is usually busy in summer but today there were few people there.
Walking up the cliff path we found another example of the autumnal squill, Scilla obtusifolia.
The coastal scenery along this walk is stunning and today there was hardly any wind, so the Mediterranean was calm and clear.
The next beach is this little cove beneath the castle, Bateria de San Ramon.
Finally we arrived at El Playazo and walked to the end of the beach.
The wispy cloud of the morning soon dispersed leaving a clear blue sky.
We like the far end of El Playazo and stopped for a picnic, swim and rest. The rocks here are fascinating as you can see from the photo above.
We did not return along the coast. Instead we walked up El Valle de Rodalquilar and along a track cutting through the mountains back to Las Negras.
