The best way to discover our coastline is on foot, along its promenades and other paved pathways that run along the seafront.
The route distance given has been calculated from one end to the other, and does not take into account the return journey. Please bear this in mind so as to avoid surprises! This route is easy, and can be started at any point along the promenade – it all depends on your fitness level and the time you have at your disposal.
The route starts by the Marina. After a slight incline you will pass over the Retor Coves and Orpesa la Vella, the latter located on a hill where an Iberian settlement , its namesake, is located. After this section, the route heads downhill.
At La Concha Beach, the promenade starts to turn left and head uphill towards the famous King's Tower, an interesting example of Renaissance-style military architecture. Next to the tower stands the Lighthouse, an example of Catalan Art Nouveau architecture. To your right you will see a stairway leading down to the rocks and Morro de GosBeach.
Continue along the Seafront Promenade down the entire length of this beach until you get to Les Amplàries Beach. When you get to the next roundabout you can follow the route along the fine sand or through the parks and gardens lining the urbanisation, until arriving at the campsite area.
The last section of the route consists of a wooden board walk running between sand dunes in some sections and vegetation in others, and which leads to Torre La Sal, a small seaside town untouched by the passing of time. If you wish to return, you can do so by retracing your steps or link up with the R-4trail to return to Oropesa del Mar.
