Start of walk to Cap Do’r Moraira
It’s the 17th of May 10.30am and we are off for a walk to Cap d’or.
Cap d’or is the pepper pot watchtower above El Portet in Moraira built in the 16th century. It’s going to be another hot sunny day so walking in the morning is much easier. A leisurely walk to the top takes 30 mins. The pathways are rough with loose rocks, so you need to be sure footed with sensible footwear. I would not attempt it in the wet as there are expanses of flat rock that would get very slippy. During the winter it also gets slippy in the mornings from the dew, so best to let the sun dry it out and walk later in the day. The start of the walk is at the end of Pto. de Alcudia and this road is off Puerto del sol.
Simply follow the green and white markers along the way.
There are many wild flowers to look at all the way up to the top. The views are stunning and at the top you can see Javea and beyond on one side and Moraira over to Benidorm, with the Penon de Ifach rock in Calpe in between, on the other. It’s amazing just how many properties there are scattered along the coastline.
