THE PIRATES’ ITINERARY (La Isleta del Moro – San José)

THE PIRATES’ ITINERARY (La Isleta del Moro – San José)1THE PIRATES’ ITINERARY (La Isleta del Moro – San José)2

This itinerary is always available if the wind is not too strong.

 

We start in La Isleta fishermen’s quarter where ancient fishing techniques are still in use. Sailing to San José, we first see San Felipe’s castle, built on ancient reef beaches that have created a soft calcareous rock, which has been transformed by the wind into whimsical and magical figures. Then we pass Embarcadero’s beach and Rocket’s Point where the first Spanish rocket was launched in the 1960’s; this was due to the small population of the area and the low risk of accidents. We go through the Escullos’ cliffs, a name that comes from the reefs (in Spanish escollos) that complicated sailing for those who didn’t know the seabed.

We finish the ride in Higuera’s cove and San José, an old fishermen village that has now become one of the main touristic places within the Park.
