A must see and do day trip for everybody traveling in northern Andalucia is the Cabo de Gata Nature Reserve Park. Not all of Cabo de Gata is under the National Park, but the part under protection is the most beautiful and unspoiled part. The nature park spans an approximate 45 Km distance walkable from Agua Amarga up to the "Torre de los Lobos" to the south of Las Negras. All of it is fairly easy to walk. This is a must do because you will see the most beautiful beaches along the Andalusian cost line since some of them are not accessible by car. Walking through the desert like landscape is a real treat and you will find some very interesting fauna and flora. The water around the nature park is also a marine reserve, so if you are lucky you will also see normally unseen creatures in the sea. The views are stunning in every direction. Especially a treat in early morning and when the sun goes down. You can walk the way until San Pedro and return the same way. There is no other way back! Or you could pitch a tent in San Pedro and walk the rest the next day. It is not that easy with public transportation, especially in off season. There is a bus from Las Negras, but on weekends connections are very limited if at all. The best thing is really to just walk, take a backup tent and see where the wind carries you. The path is good and walkable. It is not recommended to walk in the summer because it's too hot and there is only water in a few places. Choosing San Pedro as the destination or even staying there, can be very interesting provided you are open for alternative ways of living. San Pedro being a Hippie retreat since many decades has a unique charm of its own. Enjoy the trip.
