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. See Parc Natural del Montgó and all Javea has to offer by arranging your trip with our Javea trip generator.

    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.

  • 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.
  • 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
  • Amazing views from the top, quite a climb allow 2 - 3 hours each way. The path at places can be very rough or close to the edge especially the summit climb. Even if you go half way the views are stunning!
  • We took a short ride on our scooter on the road from Dénia to Jávea and really enjoyed the view from above over the Dénia city & the port.
  • A great walk with some climbing, best done in the less hot time of the day. I can here only speak about the path up to the Cabo San Antonio that begins behind the port of Javea and takes one up to the lighthouse,; as soon as I get to climbing the actual Montgó I will add another review. As for the path to the Cabo San Antonio, it is not difficult and takes you up in about half an hour; what's interesting and sometimes a bit sad at the same time is that the wildfires of last summer seem to have made the ascent one through treeless scrubland, whereas previously, as attested by numerous charred treetrunks, it must have wound through a pleasant woodland. Nevertheless it was a walk worth taking, with a number of ever more impressive views opening at the consecutive turns of the winding path, and a windy wilderness up at the top, wholly different from the pleasant port at the foot of the cliff. Wind-lovers will find the walk more than agreeable.
