About Our Group
Amblers meet every 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month from late September to Mid May.
Our walks are designed to be easy on mostly flat roads or tracks.
The walks last between 2 & 3 hrs with breaks for drinks of water & taking pictures of the beautiful countryside.
We normally meet up in the morning at Cafe/Bar for a coffee then start walk. After walk we will have lunch at a restaurant close by to end of walk. If a suitable restaurant is not available we will have a picnic on the walk.
Please let Group Leader Terry know by email if you would be interested joining us on our ambles, including your phone number.
Please email if you want to car share from Oliva, Terry will try to put drivers & passengers together.
Always bring a face mask.
U3A Oliva Amblers ~ November Amble
Walk: La Font Salada
Date: 29th November 2022
Start Time & Duration: This is a rather special amble, made of two different groups of amblers. Group A will be the usual group of amblers ready to embrace an amble of approximately 2 to 2 hrs 15min led by myself. Group B will enjoy a shorter and slower amble of approximately 2k led by Joe Bellenie. We all meet at the Font Sala Bar for coffee at 10.30am Start the ambles at 11.00. Lunch at approximately 2pm will be at the Font Salada poolside restaurant. Menu to be e-mailed to soon.
Route & Description: Group A will walk along the side of the Riu Del Vedat, making our way around the paddy fields. Then back via a short boardwalk and around the Muntanyeta Verda again, finishing about 1,30-2pm back at Font Sala. There are a lot of things to see on the walk, great scenery, migrating birds, & of course the paddy fields. The route is circular, approx. 6.5kms and entirely flat. Group B will enjoy a new short circular amble of approximately 2k and taking about an hour 30 minutes, again with similar scenery and entirely on the flat.
After the amble you can enjoy a refreshing dip in the natural pool before lunch. People who want to come along, but not walk, could stay at the Font for a swim.
How to get there: From Oliva take the N332 southwards in the direction of Alicante. About 3kms from Oliva keep your eye open for the Font Sala signs on the right, if you miss the first right turn off to La Font Salada, then turn right in to the Repsol Service station, and go behind the service station, you will pick up the Font Salada signs again. Follow the signs & ignore the Hotel Font Salada. Please take care as the road is narrow in places. Park up in car park on the left in front of the pool. The Café is at the back of the pool.
Things you will need: Stout walking shoes or boots certainly, walking sticks are not necessary.
Please email me if you want to car share from Oliva, I will try & put drivers & passengers together. Well behaved dogs are welcomed. All new amblers must provide phone and membership numbers when advising that they wish to join the amble.
If you intend to join the amble please confirm your intention by email and check your emails before leaving home on the morning of the amble.
