Is there any free and nice way to cross Doñana park with bicyle? Someone tried that on his own? Any info. helps.. Thanks!
Hola Kristijan - so you never made it to Conil and now you're heading north to Doñana. Although I have never been there (it is on my "to go" list) I do know that the public can visit the park only on organised tours and there are no roads through the park. However it is possible to take the ferry from Sanlucar across the Guadalquivir and cycle along the beach to Matalascañas - this has to be done from mid to low tide on the hard packed sand. A WS guest we had last year managed OK on an urban bike with quite narrow tyres. If you want to camp in the dunes just be aware that park rangers do patrol the area. It is an ecologically sensitive area so I'm sure you'll "take only photos and leave only tyre tracks". If you do decide to cycle along the beach please let me know your experience for future reference - thanks. Buen viaje. Richard
Thanks for quick reply! I am still around and will contact you again on the way back from Zahora. Yes, seens is hard to cross the park on your own, I heared there are some boats that collecting tourists from the beaches on the way to Matalascañas, but not sure if they taking bikes. Will be nice option. We are in touch!
Hi Kristijan – yes the ferry will take bikes; there’s a journal in CGOAB and a WS guest did it last year. Just make sure you go at mid to low tide – it’s about 25 – 30km along the beach to Matalascañas.
When are you going to Zahora / Canos de Meca?
I was going west in the park and i had to push my bike for a few hours in the sand. Be careful
We rode from Matalascans south,
you have to check the tide, bc you can just ride on the hard sand which appears at low water levels. The first 500 meter(next to the Hotels) where a pain in the A** but afterwards it was a beauty.
The ferry takes u over the guadalquivir for a few €
