What people are saying about Cabo de Gata-Nijar Natural Park

This week in September, my partner and I did the Kayak + Snorkel activity. We did it with Dani and Javi, lovely guys. We left very happy, because they made the activity very enjoyable. It was not the first time that I had done a kayak activity with a company and it had nothing to do with it. They took us through caves and explained many things of interest about the Cabo de Gata natural park and we made a stop to snorkel at Playazo de Rodalquilar. And at the beginning they explained to us how to use the paddle and what to do in any circumstance for people who were taking a kayak for the first time. They made us feel safe and we had fun with them. It was a very fun and entertaining experience.

An experience I had always wanted to try.....I wasn't disappointed. The 2 guides were friendly, helpful & knowledgable. After a quick lesson we set off from a beautiful cove in Las Negras and kayaked along the coast, into a cave & onto another cove for swimming. The scenery was spectacular & it was a great feeling to sit on the waves.

Route from Las Negras to El Playazo de Rodalquilar. Magnificent landscape with cliffs and caves. 3 guides (2 in kayak, 1 in boat) very friendly with whom you have a good time. They lend masks and snorkels to enjoy swimming time in El Playazo. Quiet pace.

A way to get to know the Volcanic Coast of Carboneras and its surrounding coves and take a bath in its waters is priceless

Very nice walk, we were able to swim in the beautiful and very good water.
