Lovely walk. No hills, gorgeous scenery. Plenty of seats and picnic areas for a rest along the way. Very popular and always plenty of friendly fellow travelers to chat to.

Located at the end of the Benicassim paseo heading towards Oropesa, this 5.5km walk is a must for all able bodied visitors. The walkway is split into a gravelled side for the walkers and a road type surface for the cycles. There are signs clearly showing which side you must use. Along the route, you pass through high cliff wall... More

A dedicated cycling and walking route along an old railway line. Great views over the seas and inland to the mountains. Benicassim, Orpessa and Marina d'Or all offer the opportunity for refreshment.

Benicassim is well supplied with great cycle routes and this one is no exception. 5.5km in length. Flat, good surface. Can be busy use your bell if you are cycling. Take water.

Meant to do this last time we visited the area a few years ago, so made sure we walked from Benicassim to Oropesa along the Via Verde this time round - and worth the wait. A gentle stroll with interesting scenery along the way. Some of the cyclists can be a little careless as they treat it as a race... More

This is a quiet way to spend a few hours, just don't go with teenagers ("this is boring", "can we go now?", "I'm hot", etc). It is very tranquil, but be warned there is very little shade along the route so try to avoid the hottest part of the day. We started the trail near Club Nautico De Orepesa del... More

Lovely route to Oropesa. After 6 km ended up on the beach front. Excellent restaurant and nice shallow beach. Swam in October and enjoyed the sun.

Walk or Ride along the old railroad tracks along the Cost. Great views, tunnels to give shade on a hot day. And safe to walk at night.
