Routes on horseback is a fun activity for the whole family that combines the feeling of freedom, serenity and beauty in a unique setting. There are several routes but most combine the walk along the coast paths, visiting some of the old fortifications of the area or cottages, walks along the sandy emblematic beaches of Mónsul or Genoveses, and visits to local villages as Rodalquilar. In the links section you can find the links on companies engaged in this kind of tours in Cabo de Gata.
Mountain bike routes are a perfect way to combine sport and know precious places. We must remember that we are in an arid land and shadows are scarce, so in summer we should not require us to do too much and not do too hard routes, because it might lead to heat stroke. At this time it is better to use the bike to ride in a town or visit our favorite cove, and so end our tour with a refreshing dip. The rest of the year is the perfect place for the most demanding MTB routes, it offers volcanic hills that lovers of this sport will not find anywhere else.
If we want an activity that generates adrenaline can rent an ATV. The ATV are hilarious and will lead us in paths unimaginable. But this can be annoying to other visitors who came seeking peace and quiet offered by the Nature Reserve. We must be respectful and sensible with the use of these vehicles. For the environment is not affected by our activities must follow the rules that we stated when we rented the quad. Do not leave the ways, if we do cross country with our car we may be destroying the habitat of an animal or plant damage and irreparable unique rocks. Enjoy and be respectful.
