Description
This a relatively short but stunning circular walk along the rocky coastline between Costa summarydel Silencio and Amarilla Golf, with the added bonus of two different ascents of the unusual hill called Montana Amarilla. It is designated as a Spanish natural monument and is a fascinating, layered volcanic rock formation which glows yellow in the sunlight.On reaching the furthest point, golfers will be particularly interested in seeing the challenging par three 5th hole on the Amarilla Bay golf course which crosses a section of the ocean to an elevated green above a rocky gully. Wayward shots are common! If you wish, you can explore Amarilla Golf and Golf del Sur before making your return.The return route is mostly a matter of re-tracing steps but, near the end, we ascend Montana Amarilla on it’s higher ridge, with great views all around. There is a busy beach bar, below, to entice you, or a couple of cafes on Calle Chasna near the finish.
