Parc Natural del Montgó, Javea

4.8
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.

  • We did this hike with my wife and my two children (aged 8 and 5) is technically not complicated, nor very physical. It just takes 3 h 30 - 4 h at a quiet pace. think to take 1.5 L per person and a pic nik, very nice in the mountain, there is a place or we can be aretter but out of the Sun. the only downside is the State of certain place, and the entrance to the cova of aigua him, people are really pigs, there is no respect for the place and that's a shame. otherwise the place is beautiful! to recommend

  • We have made the ascension of the Montgó with our three boys to 13,15 and 17 years. C is a beautiful mountain hike that allows to have an exceptional view of the sea and the mountains around. Attention is a real mountain and must be equipped with very good shoes the end is almost a l climbing between the rocks. It is also quite long and requires good physical shape. Feel free to leave early to make the ascension before the heat. Our teenagers loved and so do we.

  • Great open space outside Javea, you can take in several scenic walks albeit with some ascent which may put off a few people. Often you c are able to follow designated walking routes that are way marked with posts and rocks that have coloured stripes to show the way.
  • Very nice natural park. The windmills (molins) were very interesting.
  • Beautiful and varied views. Has multiple routes to the top with surprising variety of atmosphere from fairly steep and rugged too shrouded in trees and in spring surround by flowers. I go uo it about once a week. Takes between 2 to 5 hours depending on route to get on top of the mountain and back
  • Well-maintained eco zone. Only one way up to the mountain, around it and to the top.
  • Beautiful mountain and great views of the surrounding areas, including the sea on two sides if you get to the top. However watch out because trail markings are a bit faded. Also look up the route to the starting point first because they're not very well indicated on the surrounding roads.
