Los alrededores

Just stepping out the door of the Eco homes, you can start walking or mountain biking in the Serra del Boix. If you are of those who prefer the mountains and adventure sports, we are less than 1 hour from the summits of over 1,000 meters of the Natural Park of Els Ports Tortosa-Besseit. And do not miss the unknown Serra de Cardó, full of history and breathtaking mountain scenery, just 45 minutes from the Ecofinca Lo Favaret. If you prefer the sea and beach, the Natural Park of the Ebro Delta is only 20 minutes drive, waiting for you with rice fields rising behind the sand dunes, unspoilt beaches and incredible variety of bird-life, including the famous pink flamingos.

We briefly recommend some routes we have walked and believe are essential. If you want to know more, we invite you to see them in more detail and new excursions as on our blog. Have great fun!

Playa del Torn

Playa del Torn

Fantastic nudist beach of 3 kilometres long near Hospitalet de l’Infant, surrounded by mountains and pine trees, and considered one of the cleanest on the coast.

It is the path that ran along the rail tracks of the Vall de Zafán the first half of s.XX. So, now this track has been restored and reserved for cycling. The main section, of 44 kilometres, starts in Tortosa and ends in Horta de Sant Joan. It is a route suitable for everyone as the gradient is minimal and if the direction is towards the sea, the slope is downward. If you want to make the route only downhill, the cycling companies “Montsport” or “Esgambi” will transport you to the starting point.
