Mojacar - Cabo de Gata - Nijar loop
Starting in Mojacar this ride takes us south along spectacular coastline into the Cabo de Gata-Nijar Natural Park, the largest coastal protected area in Andalusia, which is the only region in Mainland Europe with a true hot desert climate.
One of highlights of this route is the Mirador de la Granatilla which we have to climb towards the end of the ride. The views from the top are simply breathtaking, the best in Cabo de Gata-Nijar. A real Instagram opportunity!
From here we roll along the coast and down from the Mirador, through the coastal town of Carbonares and further into the Natural Park on pristine roads which are eerily quiet! We can stop for coffee on the beautiful beach at Aqua Amarga, a typical pretty Spanish village, before we head out on a loop to bring us back to the climb up to the Mirador de la Granatilla.
This ride really does showcase the best of Almeria cycling.
