Most comprehensive mapping.
on 7 November 2012
This is beautifully presented map which has the added advantage of marking in all of the walks from Charles Davis' "Walk the Costa Blanca Mountains" so it makes the perfect companion to that walking guide.
The scale is 1:40,000 which is more than adequate for needs and is mapped on both sides, thus covering a huge area. There is a 1:20,000 scale map available but obviously it doesn't cover as many walks and the use of colour coding is not as effective as on this map. This one also benefits from more recent mapping and the use of GPS.
The printed material is claimed to be durable and certainly we had no problems but I fully intend to put this claim to the test of time in the future, as this is a wonderful area in which to walk. Roads, tracks and all other communications are clearly marked as are the contours which makes it easy to see where the steep bits are. It is very easy therefore to recommend this as an essential purchase if you plan to head into these mountains.
