San Roque Nature
San Roque is in a privileged location, next to mountains and lakes, resulting in extensive forests and natural landscapes, such as:
Pinar del Rey Pine Woods
A wood nature park with over 360 hectares, mainly of pine trees, cork oak trees and wild olive trees. There are picnic and barbecue facilities in the recreational area as well as a Nature Centre in the middle of the park. The Alhaja Stream runs down the wood's eastern boudary and the Alhaja Drinking Foundation is located near the park gate.
In addition there are four marked ecological trails with information panels: Big, Ugly Bird Gorge Ecological Trail, Eagle's Hill Ecological Trail, Alhaja Stream Ecological Trail, and Pinar del Rey Ecological Trail.
The Guadiaro River Estuary
A 27 hectare nature reserve. The mouth of the river is a wonderful example of a thick river bank vegetation and ending in a sand bar before meeting the sea. It is a highly important conservation area, not only for its scenery, but also beacuse of the variety of flora and fauna, particulary migratory birds. After all we must not forget the Straits of Gibraltar is the most significant migration route in Western Europe and North Africa.
The Torreguadiaro Lagoon is another 2 hectare nature spot with information panels and birdwatching huts.
A lovely nature spot from which you can admire a breathtaking view of the sea and the mountains. There is a lake in the centre in a fissure which makes the mountains look like an ark. It is said that the mountains have the shape of an ark due to a meteorite impact. It is an ideal place for hiking, horse riding and riding mountain bikes.
