  • Upload and give you a walk worthwhile, is very nice and if you like eacalar is a very air route.

  • The path is perfect to go with agile people and having an optimal fitness level. The only problem I see is that not warn that it can be dangerous to go with children under 10 years old at least. There are sections that slide and can be dangerous. Once above the views are beautiful.

  • The possibility to take a walk by the sea and enjoy views of an impressive Peñón seen from so close... It is worth losing a little.

  • A good hike quite difficult and not really suitable for young children. Complicated parts and dangerous because very slippery. Need a good physical condition and without any apprehension of the void. Not recommended for those who are subject to Vertigo. If several points of view interesting along the way for a final in panoramic view 360 °.

  • Beautiful walk to do with children. Location quite challenging but worth it for the wonderful view that you can enjoy. There is a picturesque stretch of the cave attached to the rope. The first piece is also accessible to the disabled with wheelchair.

  • We spent the day going to the rock of Ifach, the first part of the ascent is very easy, but the second moderate, the views are stunning, highly recommended.

  • Very good climbing, look at heat, nesting seasons, humidity in the morning on the wall and the way down through the tunnel. A classic mountain roads that are sure not to leave you indifferent.
