It's a scenic and beautiful walk/ride on the path of an old railway. Very flat and enjoyable, full of locals.

We both walked and biked this flat scenic path. It’s wide enough to accommodate bikers, runners and folks who just want to stroll. It’s safe and right in the lovely town of Benicassim. Highly recommend!

This is a wonderful cycling route following the line of the old train track. Good even surface that has no steep inclines. Lovely views of the coast with access to the sea for having a picnic, swim, or, fishing.

I live in Benicasim. The Via Verde Green Route is marvellous, for practice sports (running, cycling, walking) and for relax in its little beaches

We were staying at the Voramar which is yards from the route and I went for rides on four days along this route very easy to follow great views and good links into bencasim and other local towns. Spanish highways engineers put ours to shame.

Beautiful stretch but busy after early morning. I rode it at 7am and it was a beautiful sunrise. Gravel for walkers and pavement for riders.

Too many people. Impossible to cycle safely during weekends. Best time is during weekdays. Can be dangerous. Accidents occurred among cyclists, runners, dogs and walkers swaying around.

Nice to do - once - and by bicycle, otherwise too long and boring on foot. Beautiful sea-views. Nice to be away from busy roads...

Parked near Voramar hotel in Benicassim to Oropesa del Mar. A long round trip at around 12km but flat and easy going. Great contrast of scenery with sea views, cut outs through the cliff and a few tunnels. The tunnel near Oropesa is long but...More

Great views along the vía verde. Is 8k to Oropesa. Please respect the cyclists and runners in the area, annoying to have to stop because of the crowdy path

The route has a variety of road surfaces. In Benicassim it’s good smooth tarmac but out to Oropesa it’s not so good, particularly in the tunnels. However the scenery makes it all worthwhile and another great thing is that there are plenty of places to...More
