Enjoy Cabo de Gata

Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata - Níjar

Agua Amarga - Beach of the Dead.


by La Mesa Roldán.


Distance:  10 linear km.
Duration:  3 to 4 hours.
Recommended time:  All year.
Difficulty: High.


Leaving Agua Amarga, we take the road that goes to Carboneras.

When we arrive at the Cortijada de los Ventorrillos, we will continue along a path that goes to the right towards the beach and that, later on, joins again with the asphalt road that goes up to Mesa Roldán.

On the right we take the old lighthouse road (sign indicating the beginning of the trail).
In this area there is a lighthouse and an old Watch Tower from the s. XVIII, the views from there are spectacular due to its height.
To continue our way to Playa de los Muertos, we go down the new road until we find a detour which takes us to the viewpoint of Playa de los Muertos, from where we will observe one of the most beautiful coves in the Park natural Cabo de Gata - Nijar, and which owes its name to the strong currents existing in these areas dragging the corpses of shipwrecks that occurred in its vicinity to its sands.
