This Natural Park is simply breathtaking! Best to explore by foot.

Africa dives under Spain making fantastic volcanic geology and spectacular scenery. Our Spanish friend's favourite part of his own country. One of my favourite parts of any country. Swimming is good whether in clear water from rocky beaches or in waves at the sandy beaches.
