Secret coves

The most pleasant part of this hike is the wild and hidden coves. A real haven of peace. These small bays, nestled between the rocks, are inaccessible by car, which makes them all the more attractive for hikers looking for tranquility. These coves are ideal for a break, a picnic, or even a swim. The water is clear and very blue and refreshing, perfect for relaxing after a morning of walking.

Advice: Make sure you leave with plenty of water, suitable hiking shoes and sunscreen. In summer, the days are very hot, so we recommend that you leave early in the morning. There is very little space in the shade, don't forget your hat.
