Calas de Roche y Conil de la Frontera – Circular hike route from Conil de la Frontera
The walk is a circular 4-5 hour walk and is a circular route of 15km. This hike includes visiting the natural coves of Conil de la Frontera and Roche. However, if you do the full hiking route you will see beach, pine forest and Mediterranean shrub habitats as well.
The surrounding habitats of Roche are gorgeous. The beaches are clean, the water is turquoise and it is surrounded by pine forest. You will find Mediterranean coastal juniper which is protected in the area and very important for the chameleon throughout Cadiz province.
Pine forest and coves of Roche – Linear hike in Roche, Conil de la Frontera
This is a linear walk in Roche that will take you 2:30h. It is best if you have a taxi who can pick you up at the end. If not you will have to return almost the same way. In this hike you will appreciate pine forest, cliffs, and coastal marine habitats. You will start outside Connatur a local moringa farm in Roche, Conil de la Frontera. I recommend starting here because you can start with a healthy breakfast and learn about the superfood “moringa” before the nature hike.

Beach hike to Cape Trafalgar – Linear hike from Conil de la Frontera
This hike is a linear hike that takes around 4:00-5:00h and it is 13km long. It is a lovely hike if you love walking on the beach in Conil de la Frontera. I recommend not to do the hike if there are levante winds. Start this hike from Conil de la Frontera and ask for a taxi to pick you up in Cape Trafalgar. If you call Barbate taxi when you are at Cape Trafalgar you should have time to go to the road where the taxi can pick you up.
