Parc Natural del Montgó, Javea

(4.8/5 based on 320+ 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.

  • My friend wanted to watch the sun rise on the top of the Montgo, so we set off at 04:30 hrs in order to reach the top for the 06:50 hrs sunrise. Very dark (using head torches) we climb the 752 metres ...  more »
  • A great way to spend a day enjoying the fresh air and views. Dress appropriately wear lots of sunblock and sunglasses. Make sure you bring along water and a nice picnic. It really is a day to remember  more »
  • Reserve is located between Javea and Denia Montgo and Montgo. There are great tours but poorly marked a good hiking map is therefore important and helpful. Be careful, parts of the road to the mountain cross are to climb only with good hiking boots.

  • 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.
