Hiking from Matalascañas to Sanlucar de Barrameda

In the natural reserve of Doñana we find this lovely route which runs along the seashore for 28 kilometres without signposts and extending to the mouth of the Guadalquivir River, where we take a ferry.

This route is characterized by its tides and has to be made when the tide is low so you should be provided with suitable footwear as you will find numerous puddles and the ground is wet sand.

This itinerary starts on the beach Matalascañas right at the beginning of the beach of Doñana National Park. We start to walk and on the way we see old fishermen's houses that used to be inhabited all year and the watchtower 'Torre Carbonero' from the sixteenth century, built to guard the coasts of Andalusia from the constant pirate attacks and which also was a civil war bunker.

Along the way you might come along authorized vehicles of the park doing tours. Finally after reaching the mouth you will get to the Village of la Plancha where you take the ferry to cross the river Guadalquivir to Sanlucar de Barrameda where you can take a deserved break to enjoy the rich cuisine of the place.

For the return trip we recommend a guided tour by car during which you will see some of the varied wildlife of the National Park Doñana and stop at some beautiful places where you can enjoy the characteristic landscape of the area such as the moving dunes.
