Situated in the region of the same name, it is a natural waterfall, which provides a contrast to the arid land that surrounds it.
Nature is capricious, but it was so kind as to create this beauty spot in the River de la Torre. A waterfall more than 20 metres high presides over the landscape and the cool spring water refreshes the air all year round.
The visitor can swim in the rock pools in summer, and the recreational area, with tables and benches set out under the waterside trees invites one to picnic.
Fish, crayfish and turtles can be seen in the small pools, and access is provided by a safe, comfortable path with handrails. There is also a small car park and an observation point where one can look over the channel the water has carved into the rock over the centuries.
“El Salt” is a 15 minute drive from Alicante, and the turn-off to reach it is on the CV – 800 road, next to the cemetery. We take the turn to Jijona, and just next to the local secondary school there is a signpost that indicates a well-paved country road that will take us to the recreational area.
If we are arriving from Alcoy, at the entrance to Jijona we turn left towards the cemetery and we will find the signs to our destination.
