Parc Natural del Montgó, Javea
(4.8/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
Explore the rugged and rocky coastline of Alicante at Parc Natural del Montgó, home to more than 650 species of plants and animals and some of the best scenery in Spain. Delve into the park’s more than 2,100 hectares (5,190 acres) of wild scrubland and mountainous terrain. Travel to the heart of the preserve and climb to the summit of Monto mountain, which rises to a height of 753 m (2,470 ft) above the surrounding plain. From the top, you'll enjoy panoramic views of the ocean, mountains, and occasionally the Balearic island of Ibiza. Wear appropriate footwear, as the terrain can be rough at times. The climb can easily take three to four hours one way, and is therefore not recommended for those with limited mobility. See Parc Natural del Montgó and all Javea has to offer by arranging your trip with our Javea trip generator.

  • Most visitors to the Spanish Costas go directly to the beach and sea. They forget that there on very short distance beautiful nature parks. Montgo is also such a park. A mountain of greenery which you do not understand how it is possible that there is anything at all can grow. The Costa Blanca is known for the most Sun hours, then do you expect not so much green. You can make beautiful walks, particularly in spring and autumn. In the summer is much too hot, but remember that even in november still often 20-23 degrees with lots of sunshine!

  • The park is incredibly beautiful and wonderful for snorkelling, swimming, or hiking. The caves along the coast are also spectacular and can be reached by hiking trail or via water.
  • Place for visiting. The views are in credible. Excellent place for taking photos
  • Great to get away from all the tourists at the seaside
  • Nice view from there. Very quiet. We took 1 1/2 from 11am.
  • Walked to the top, fantastic views for miles around.
