|Before starting, make sure that you have a
transportation from Agua Amarga back to the Las Negras, or that you have
enough time to walk back.
By the panel you find a wide ascending track (20 m). You enjoy
beautiful seaviews with Las
Negras and numerous bays.
When the track forks by fields
(35min) (100 m), keep right. The track turns into a path
(40min) (95 m) that starts to descend to the bay
of San Pedro. Looking down from the sheer cliffs
you see a stony shore.
By the castle
of San Pedro (1h) (40 m), go right downhill towards the beach (1h05min)
(0 m). On your way you pass pieces
of art created by the inhabitants of San Pedro. On the beach you
find an information panel on the bay.
Continue from the "Cala San Pedro" panel on a path to the
left, and bend right after some 100 meters. You find the path towards
Agua Amarga by a house with a round tower
(1h09min) (20 m). Follow stone piles waymarking this ascending path. It
climbs to a plateau, where it bends right, away from the sea
(1h32min) (200 m). From now on the path ascends gently through the
plateau to the cliffs
opening extensive views down to the coast (1h42min) (235 m). The route
curves left uphill following the cliffs and starts to go downhill after
you reach the altitude of 245 m. When the
path forks (2h) (205 m), go left. Follow the clear path
which you can see hundrets of meters in front of you, and ignore all
The bay of Plomo
comes into sight (2h23min) (135 m) and the path slopes down to a sand
road (2h43min) (5 m). Turn right. The road leads to the beach, where
it bends left, away from the beach. About 300 m further you find a
wooden pole with a white arrow pointing right on a path
(2h52min) (5 m). From now on the route offers only modest views. You
walk over a few sandstone hillocks
and come to a track (3h10min) (5 m) which you follow to the right.
When you reach a lovely beach,
take the path
to the left (3h15min) (5 m). This path has no pole nor any other
waymark. The path climbs uphill and meets another path (3h27min) (80 m).
Turn right and descend to Agua
Amarga (3h40min). By the information panel you find a track
that leads to the village (3h45min) (5 m).
