A guidebook to 40 half and full day coastal walks in Andalucia. The graded routes, which are suitable for any reasonably fit walker, range from 6km to 19.5km and can be walked all year round. The walks are located in seven of the region's most beautiful National Parks and protected areas (including La Brena y las Marismas, Los Alcornocales y del Estrecho, La Sierra de las Nieves and Nijar-Cabo de Gata) and are mostly circular in nature, negating the need for any logistical legwork. Step-by-step route descriptions for each walk are accompanied by 1:50,000 mapping, together with information about points of interest en route.

Also included is a useful glossary and route summary table, plus all the practical information needed to explore Andalucia's coast on foot - equipment, safety, when to go, refreshments, accommodation and more. The picturesque coastline of Andalucia is a walker's dream. Sandwiched between mountain and sea, walkers are rewarded with both dazzling mountain vistas and stunning seascapes. The sense of history embedded in these ancient coastal byways - which dates back to ages past - is an added delight, making the walking all the richer.
