Our decision to quit early yesterday paid off as a much warmer, sunnier day dawned. What we hoped for on the Spanish coast! We headed into the town and took a road that led right along the coast, which made for some stunning scenery as the winds and unsettled weather of the day before created huge waves as far as we could see. Soon we were in a regional park, centred around the Cap d’Irta, and followed what was marked as a bicycle trail for quite some time, still along the coast. The rugged cliffs, crashing waves and even a wild boar running across our path made for a fantastic morning, even if it was slightly hard work on the rocky dirt road. Around noon we surfaced again in the seaside resorts and continued to follow the coastal path for some kilometers, until finally we were forced to rejoin the busy highway. There are more road choices here than further north though and it wasn’t long before we could come back to the sea, where we found a campsite nearly on the beach for just 10 euros. Tomorrow we will continue, with hopes of stopping just outside Valencia for our last night of camping before we take a hostel over Christmas.
While we were in the Cap d’Irta area we took a little video which you can see below:
