This is an easy walk although there are some very steep uphill sections. The costal path is a little exposed in places but a couple of chains have been placed to aid the walker. It starts at Cumbre Del Sol at an elevation of 190 meters with a pleasant flat track walk before descending on a path to reach the beach of Cala Granadella. A very stiff uphill walk is rewarded by a beautiful coastal path to the ruins of Castell Granadella. The ruins of this horseshoe shaped building, which was once part of the Valencia Costal defence, date back to 1739. It was ruined by the English during the Napoleonic war. From the Castell there is another steep climb (with lovely wild flowers in spring) to the Mirador de Llevant. A stop to admire the views is followed by an easy track walk back to the start.
