To eat the mona (a round cake that is traditionally eaten during Easter), to admire century-old Juniper trees, to ride a hot air balloon or to set sail towards Columbretes are but a few of the proposals of the Natural Parks to celebrate Easter. The environment, sports and fun are hand in hand this week in the Valencia Region. Alone, as a couple, with friends or family, this is the perfect proposal to have a great time in a natural environment...
The Natural Parks of the Valencia Region propose activities for all tastes for Easter, which range from educational routes, bird watching, exploring caves, hot air balloon rides or sailing in the Mediterranean.
In Castellón, you can discover the Iberian village of Morranda in Tinença de Benifassà, to ascend to the Bartolo in Dessert de les Palmes, to sail to the Columbretes islands on board the Barracuda and to visit Illa Grossa, to walk through the Barranc de la Pegunta, the Barranc Obscur and the Robollar de Penyagolosa, or to visit the magical and ancient juniper trees of Puebla de San Miguel.
Valencian natural parks show you the cork oaks of Calderona, allow you to waddle in the Turia, taste delicious oil at Hoces del Cabriel or discover the stone and water landscapes of Chera-Sot de Chera.
To visit the living gardens of the Pego-Oliva marshland, the wind giants of Cabo de San Antonio, to cross the Serra Gelada to discover the secrets of the cliffs, to fly above the Serra de Mariola in a hot air balloon, to discover the migrations of birds at Carrascal de la Font Roja and to walk through the salt plains of Bonmatí to see how salt is harvested in Santa Pola are among the proposals of the parks in the province of Alicante.
But if you are more traditional-minded and you prefer to go it alone, to skip rope and have some mona, feel free to do so, keeping in mind that you must always care for nature, bringing away pictures in your retina or your camera, and leaving behind only the tracks of your shoes.
