Worth it!
Sep 2019
This is a little bit of a trek but not too bad if you are fit and able. When you arrive at the top of the tower it is absolutely fantastic views. Well worth the visit.

Stunning View
Sep 2019
We parked by the beach and walked the pathway along the sea up to the tower. Great view from ground level but you can also climb the stairs into the tower itself. The stairwell inside the tower is narrow but once you emerge on the top the view and breeze is breathtaking.

Lovely road with many pretty views across the mountain side looking over the ocean. Worth walking around with family or friends if you want to enjoy the nature side of Mojacar.

A long walk, but worth it!
Aug 2019 • Family
For some reason we decided to walk to the Torre del Pirulico from our hotel in the hottest part of the day in early August. With the temperature approaching 42 degrees C, we walked out of our hotel (Beat Pueblo Indalo) and down the sea front path all the way to the end where you then have to cut through the car park. In the far corner you will find your way onto the coast path that leads up through the cliffs with some lovely views, some parts are steep so if your a little unsteady on your feet I would avoid this route and take a car instead. Along the path there are lots of little bathing spots (used mostly by the Spanish) and some heritage signs that provide some interesting snippets of information. It’s worth mentioning at this point we had our two year old in a buggy and managed to easily push through until the other side when the path went sandy for a few 100 yards. The path then opened out onto Playa Castillo, a nice basic beach but had no shade at any point. We were hot by this point and was worried we had little water left, no obvious shops were this side until we spotted a shack at the far end of the car park. This turned out to be Chiringuito Macenas, a lovely place to stop and have a nice cold drink and a meal (the swordfish is recommended). The path continues up past the building and along a king dirt track path, locals drive through here and it can be a little tight on the cliff edge so stay safe. The track leads directly to the Torre del Pirulico, we left the buggy at the bottom of the steps and walked up to the foot of the tower. A large steel staircase leads up into the heart of the tower giving some great views, my wife struggles with walking over raised platforms but managed it with a little encouragement. Inside it’s a little cool and to one side a small opening that leads through to a narrow stair case. You can stand at the very top and enjoy some lovely views. It’s a good photo opportunity so well worth the trip. As I mentioned earlier in this review you can drive here, but I don’t think you get the same feel for the surroundings. It was then time to enjoy the long walk back.

You can climb up to the top of the tower to get great views of the area. We walked here from Mojacar, along the coastal path.

If this was in the UK it would cost you money to visit, but its free

Not much to this place, but it is well worth a visit. The view is fantastic, in any weather. But now for some facts
The road to it is a dirt track along the side of a cliff, its wide enough for one vehicle, with limited passing spaces. I would suggest if you can walk up from the beach. If not its not difficult.
The Tower itself has step access, steep steps. The top of the tower is up a metal ladder, very steep and open to the wind. You can vistit the bottom which is flat after the forst steps from the road, and still the view is great.
if you carry on along the road you come to a great beach, in the summerr has a bar.

Great walk
Jan 2018 • Couples
Take the coastal path from the end of the promenade. It winds its way along the cliff, decends to Macenas beach and then you keep heading south on the dirt road parallel to the beach until you reach the tower. The tower itself is well preserved and there are fabulous views up and down the coast from the top.
The walk is about 5 miles in total for the return trip but you can stop off for refreshments at the excellent chiringuito next to the car parking area on Macenas beach.

If you don't mind climbing all those stairs it is worth it. The view is amazing. You can see the coast and the beautiful beaches.
