Punta Paloma Dune

Full day Hike: 8-9 hours

Distance: 9 km Price: 180€ 1-2 persons

Included: Expert nature guide, binoculars (if needed)

This hike will take us to spectacular panoramic views. We will cross a pine forest and  we will walk along the beach, close to this huge dune.

The hike starts at the Chalcolitic Necropolis of los Algarbes, an archaeological monument which was founded more than 4500 years ago.

We can observe the typical vegetation of the coast with the Stone pine woods, White brooms and plants adapted to grow in the sand, as Sea daffodil, Marram grass or endangered species as Armeria pungens or Limonium emarginatum

Monarch butterfly inhabits this area, as a result of storms that bring them from America, and they have found the way to settle here, because there is some of the plants they need to survive, introduced in the area.

Several birds species will be possible to observe along the way, such as Stonechat, Sardinian Warbler, Bee-eaters, Egyptian Vultures, etc.
