Hill walking: We are a small (10-15 in numbers) group of active walkers who meet on Sunday mornings for hill walks of up to 3 hours duration in the areas around The Montgó, Pedreguer, Jalón and surrounding areas. We normally meet up before 10.00 am each Sunday for coffee and then drive to our start point and hike off to the hills. Many of us are residents on The Montgó, but our group is not exclusively so. We claim to be international with English, Dutch, Belgian, Danish and Spanish friends joining in. We only walk in the winter months from October until April. If you would like to join us please contact Phil on 688 611 390 and we can e-mail you our upcoming walks.

Every drop counts ! Message from AMJASA 24.8.16: 

A very severe and prolonged drought has caused the depletion of the wells in Pedreguer that supply us, as well as the drop in pressure available to the Pedreguer Community of Irrigators which has helped us so far.

– The Desalination Plant is working at full capacity without interruption since the daily water demand of the town in the second half of August is still higher than in previous seasons.
– Although the water supply is guaranteed for most of the network, there are some imbalances in supply due to the difficult terrain and the complications in restoring supply after breakdowns caused by high water consumption.
– In this situation Amjasa is working in extreme conditions, especially in the areas located at high levels and which have a very high demand for the watering of gardens and the maintenance of pools, in some cases even higher than the supply at full capacity.
– To avoid intermittent cuts to supply, we ask our customers to use water sensibly & focus on human consumption, thus avoiding irrigation and the filling of poolsThank you for your cooperation

What to do with visitors...

FIRE PREVENTION | Attention Smokers: In the aftermath of the fire that destroyed two hectares in Nova Xàbia this week, the cause of which is remains unknown at the time of writing, N332 reminds you that there is a 200 € fine and three points for throwing a lit cigarette from a car. Many fires have been caused by this bad practice and N332 urges everyone to be responsible and ensure it doesn't happen again. (Company registered and classified at the “Registro de contratistas y empresas clasificadas de la Comunidad Valenciana") is going to carry out, at the properties who request it, the exclusive treatment against mosquitoes at a price up to 70€. Request a date and a budget by phone or WhatsApp to 0034-633-0123-78. Or Facebook, or by mail - Jaime Tomás

Cyclist? See Useful Information re road manners in Spain.


Please conserve water!  Reservoirs are at an 8-year low and although we have the desalination plant, as you know from last year, this was stretched to capacity during these two high tourist season months, so turn off taps and your car can stay dusty!
