Puerta Verde de Roquetas de Mar

For a delightful stroll use the Puerta Verde de Roquetas de Mar. La Puerta Verde is a short route between Roquetas and Aguadulce that enables beach users, walkers and cyclists to enjoy use of the Cañada Real de la Costa without encountering motorized traffic.

It runs from the eastern end of the Paseo Marítimo in Roquetas to Urbanización Torrequebrada in Aguadulce.

The route runs parallel to the protected ‘Monumento Natural Arrecife Barrera de Posidonia oceánica’, a barrier reef where a particular seagrass grows. The plant is endemic to the Mediterranean and unique to the Andalusian coast.
