We start the route in Playa Honda, in the Mar Menor, and more specifically in the Zankara Beach Bar where we will end up closing the route and enjoying your meal.
We rolled along the Mar Menor and left it on our right, on the GR-92 until we reached Mar de Cristal where we already turned towards Los Belones. And from there we already look for Calblanque through its Visitor Center, “Las Cobatillas”, of the Calblanque Regional Park, Mount of Ashes and Peña del Águila.
We descend Rambla de las Cobatillas below until we reach the Mediterranean Sea at the height of the Beaches, Larga, Punta Seca and Las Cañas. Where we take again the GR-92 towards Cabo de Palos and leaving the Mediterranean on our right.
We arrive at Las Salinas de Callblanque and there we turn towards the Houses of Calblanque where we go up to the small hill that form the Cerro de los Cuatro Tiros. We border the Cerro de los Martínez between the paths and the fields of Garci-Pérez until little by little we reach the Cabo de Palos that we cross and we border along its two coasts to return through the great active salt mines of Marchamalo where we can contemplate its flamingos.
We return to the Mar Menor and along its coast, following the GR92 we arrive at our starting point. Zankara Beach Bar in Playa Honda.
Quiet and easy route where you can contemplate the Cabo de Palos and its two seas. The Mediterranean and the Minor agreed with its people, agriculture and salt farms.
