A natural environment and an abundance of pathways cut through the valley, mountains and clifftops, provide the ideal setting for both hiking and cycling. Many of the routes pass through plantations of exotic fruit trees such as the custard-apple, mango, banana, guava, avocado. In addition, there is a wealth of Mediterranean flora and both seabirds and small
birds of prey are of particular interest in this area.
More than 200 species of wild and garden plants are in flower throughout the year making this a haven for nature lovers. The almond tree blossom towards the end of January is particularly striking as are the numerous blossoms in November and December of plants such as the poinsettia, oxalis and bougainvillaea.
