Description
9-montana-bocinegroThe walk kicks off at the La Tejita beach car-park about 300 m east of La Tejita itself. The beach has golden brown sand and is long and wide. It is used by naturists, especially the secluded small cove under Montana Roja. Leaving the beach, you traverse the shoulder of Montana Roja before embarking on the steep climb to the summit (optional!). The path to the top is loose and slippy in places, particularly noticeable on your descent. Great views all around from the top. We descend to the sea-front on the eastern side where we ascend the much lower Montana Bocinegro where there is an information board describing the geological and volcanic history of the area. Marvellous coastal views, especially towards the water sport “mecca” of El Medano. We then pass a 2nd WW bunker and salt-lake before reaching our point of return, close to El Medano. The return walk, on level ground, takes us through the protected area of Montana Roja, with further information boards, back to the La Tejita car-park where we started our walk.
