It's a scenic and beautiful walk/ride on the path of an old railway. Very flat and enjoyable, full of locals.

This route is the old railway so very level and goes from Benicassim to Oropesa. Its a fabulous day out or if you prefer a shorter route around the town, an hour's exercise or sight seeing.

It's a gentle ride/walk from Benicassim to Orpesa, approximately 5miles each way with only minor gradients. Lovely sea views, lots of seating and photo opportunities along the way. Happy to recommend.

Easy access coastline with lovely views, god beaches and easy access for walking and cycling. Well worth a day trip or longer if you can spare the time, certainly 3-4 days.

The Via Verde is an easy cycle / walking route for all the family. Virtually flat the whole way as it runs along an old railway line that follows the coastline. Lovely views all the way

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...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.
