Today has been another warm and sunny one and this morning we set off up the cliff path from Las Negras to San Pedro.
After rounding the Cerro Negro headland, we took the rarely used path on the right down to Cala Hernández.
This steep and difficult path hugs the north facing slopes of the hillsides and, because condensation is retained longer, the vegetation on the slopes is quite lush with an abundance of wild flowers.
Eventually we reached the sandy rambla which runs into the Cala.
When we reached the Cala, the sandy rambla led us to the pebbly beach backed by fascinating volcanic cliffs.
There was of course no one else here. The difficulty of the walk down and the fact that the beach is pebbly discourages visitors.
At the sea shore though, the pebbles give way to sand which extends out to sea. In summer the swimming and snorkeling off here should be superb. We spent a couple of very pleasant hours on the beach. It was extremely peaceful, the rock formations were fascinating and because of the lack of visitors, no litter.
Returning to Las Negras, we called in at the farm of the Garcia family at the edge of the village to meet the latest addition to their family, the donkey foal, Canario.
