This is an artificial forest, born due to a reafforestation made in the late years of the 19th Century in order to retain the sandy soil. It was declared a Natural Park by the Andalusian government. Apart from the woods, the scenic coastline and the almost 100-meters-high cliffs are also part of this Park, which is the smallest in Andalucia.

The pinewood is an excellent example of a Mediterranean forest. Stone pines cover most of the Park's extension. Other very common vegetable species are sabina, juniper, jara, rosemary, lavender ... so the forest is well preserved.

The fauna is the Mediterranean-oceanic ecosystem's typical one. Sea and forest birds are the most easy to see: several species of seagulls, jackdaws and the only colony of cattle egret in all this seafront may be observed here. In the woods birds of prey such as kestrels, falcons and owls, as well as numerous insectivorous birds are common. It is not unusual to hear the cuckoo singing.

The park also houses some populations of small mammals like rabbits, hares and other rodents. Foxes are the main observed predator here.

Chameleons, and several species of lizards may also be easily seen.

Information taken from the guide to Aldalucia (Spanish only).
