Columbretes Islands Nature Reserve
Located in Castellón de la Plana in the Valencian Community, the Columbretes Islands Nature Reserve, formerly known as the Snakes Islands, consists of four volcanic islands that rise from the sea: Columbrete Grande, also called Illa Grossa (the only one that can be visited at the moment), La Ferrera; La Horadada also known as La Foradada; and El Bergantín, sometimes called Carallot.After an enjoyable boat trip you’ll disembark at the port of Tofiño on Illa Grossa, where you'll start out on a route that will take you to a spectacular lighthouse at a height of 67 metres. A beautiful place that is well worth making the trip to see. As you walk along the trail, you’ll gradually discover the natural and ecological riches of the area, and if you have time you can always go snorkelling when you get back down to the port. Plus you’ll be able to take a closer look at the sea bed at the Castellón Planetarium, where there’s an exhibition on the islands and fishing in the area.
