The impressive Mascarat Gorge sits above the main road between Alicante and Calpe. It has several separate walls, so it is possible to find or to avoid the sun, depending on conditions. It can sometimes be difficult to communicate above the noise of the traffic and it can get windy.

Getting There 

Follow the N332 and park at a pull-off about 300 yards uphill from the gorge
