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.

I already had the book Walk! the Costa Blanca Mountains by Charles Davis so this was the obvious accompaniment. All the walks are marked on the map with the numbers of the walks in the book. Both together have shown us so much more of the Costa Blanca than is seen by the those that never stray far from the bars of Benidorm. The super-durable texture has proved itsself extremely useful on rainy days (yes, it does rain on the Costa Blanca occasionally), avoiding the soggy torn fold points that I am all too familiar with walking in the UK..

Used this on a recent walking trip and found it accurate and easy to read. The associated guidebook has a mini-map for each walk described but this map was essential in getting to the starts - usually up steep, narrow and winding lanes!

Detailed maps of these mountains are hard to come by - so this map is invaluable.
Now we can tackle the navigation with confidence.
Only slight downside is that the map stops at Relleu and doesn't cover the mountains in the west of the Costa Blanca area (North of Alicante) - maybe scope for another map to go further west and include even more wonderful walks such as the Cabo d'Oro?

I recently did a walking holiday based on Calpe in the surrounding hills and was recommended this map.
I found it most helpful - the nearest thing to a UK 25,000 scale OS map. When used with the related walk guides by the same author it gives many hours of spectacular and scenic routes in the area covered.
I highly recommend it

Great map showing routes in detail. Also bought the book for the area which was a great help. The maps in spain are not that great at 1:50 000 and 1:25 000 but this map shows good enough detail on good paper.

Good and clear map. Not just for walking but also for touring with a car.
