From Puntabela through the Coves of Bolnuevo to Playa de Percheles

Enjoy gorgeous virgin coves with the Red variant from the hiking tour from Puntabela through the Coves of Bolnuevo to the Percheles Beach.


Starting from Puntabela's oval square, after 200m pavement, we have to follow the main way of the Red Route, it’s the descending one on the left. There are not many indications to give for the 2 first kilometres. Our way is clear. We can get in and out of it to enjoy good views and swim in the sea. It could be first in “Piedra Mala” Cove, almost at the beginning. After a few 100m we will cross close to a short way that reaches the visible beach of “Cueva de Lobos” (at 1.5 km far away from Puntabela).

Cueva de Lobos’ Beach is so called like the isle opposite to it because it was a ‘Monk Seals’ refuge. Until the fifties and sixties they still lived on this zone and were commonly known as ‘sea wolves’ (“lobo” means in Spanish wolf). Right after this beach, our way climbs a small slope and turn to the right. We cross a trench and descend keeping the turn to the left, till we arrive to the ravine’s bed. We will see that there is another path on the right. It’s the meeting point of the Green and Red Routes.

However we arrived at this point, all those who want walk further have two options:

A. Continue the same route (Red route), recommendable option for the cyclists. It’s the main way, also used by cars to cross this area. It doesn’t have orientation problems, although it goes sometimes considerably inland, but without losing sight of the sea, crossing places with inhospitable beauty. This route arrives finally at the beautiful beach or cove of “Del Hondón”, where it meets the Blue and Yellow Routes. It’s a little longer but less uneven. From the “Hondón”, all the routes coincide in only once till Percheles. El Hondón is a cove easy to recognize because the path of the red itinerary goes just between it (on left side) and an old house placed between two stream beds, with a straight way about 100m that links it with the beach.

B. On our left, the track follows the ravine down until the "Amarilla" Beach and where begins the Blue Route. From the right on, where from the track to the beach comes, leaves an ascending path through the cliff’s edge. That path is the Blue Route.
