Salt Lake Walks
Walk near the Salt Lake at La Mata.
The visitor centre near La Mata is signposted and accessed from the roundabout on the N332 coast road near La Mata. Park in the car park at the centre then follow the direction signs. Good views over the lake and some bird watching points on the route. The whole walk takes about an hour.
Walks near the salt lakes at Santa Pola.
Access to the shorter of the two walks is from the Playa El Pinet which is at the northern end of the La Marina road off the N332. Turn towards the sea at the signpost to the beach then park in the newly created car park. Walk left from there with the salt lakes on your left.
The route is marked with a right turn to reach the shore through the dunes area and back along the beach. Pass to the rear of the houses before turning right back to your vehicle. Only about 2 kilometres.
