Yes you can still walk to Cala San Vicente,in fact it is easier than before.The dogs are behind a wire fence and the path is quite clearly marked.

Yes remember the dogs well used to get very scary sometimes when you could hear them barking but you did not know where they were. Do you know where the path starts from is it near the Habitat.

Thank you everyone really pleased you still can and glad you did it recently Bekki as we are over in ten days time so will give it try again after all these years, we used to walk to the monastery in Pollenca too but not sure if we could all manage that again from what i remember it was very steep.

Have a look here Map

Start at Carrer De Les Roses on the bypass behind Eroski Supermarket. Wear some suitable shoes!! Google suggests 58 mins but takes you into CSV not just the seafront
We prefer to use the road, taking in all the viewpoints over the bay and CSV via Cala Carbo (Nudist Bay!! )

Its a lovely walk. Need to be careful not to miss the little pile of rocks to indicate left turn from the road once you are at the top. Its just short of 3 miles each way.

Are you suggesting the shorter route through the grass and across the ravine, coming out at Hostel Los Pinos?
