Boquete de Zafarraya

Boquete de Zafarraya (916 m.a.s.l.) – steady climb with impressive views over majestic summit Maroma (2066 m.a.s.) on the right side and especially proper 'boquete – gap' called Zafarraya. Many times it is included in Vuelta a España and even Vuelta a Andalucia, last time in February 2017. This pass is appreciated by many cyclists coming to the region during winter to start the season and enjoy the sunny days close to Africa. A steady 11km and an excellent road with less traffic yet still close to shoreline just in case the weather up there changes quickly. Some restaurants are conveniently located directly on the pass.
