The good, the bad and the ugly

No, it isn't a description of your ride companions but because en route you will see locations used in the Clint Eastwood Westerns and other famous films. 

This ride is very long but easy and we have routed it from base but you could either drive part way or do it over two days in which case San Jose would be a good place for a stopover.

It takes you by lovely beaches and coves in the Cabo de Gata Natural Park . 

If you fancy a break for a swim we have flagged up some of the best of them.

The Goat Trek

The highest point on this ride is Alto de Los Cabreras (1169m) which roughly translates as Goat Heights and you might see some. 

You approach through Puerto Santa Maria de Nieva (1093m), the Pass of St Mary of the Snow, and you almost certainly won't see any.

Then you leave this stretch through Alto de Los Cerricos (1126m) or Heights of the Little Hills. The locals sometimes have a sense of humour when they name places......
