The Dexo harbour Route starts and finishes at two different sites: Dexo harbour and the church with the same name.

The path passes through plantations of pine and eucalyptus trees near the coast line, which are accompanied by small groves of native trees, such as Oaks and Bay Laurels. On the coast, however, there is a large area of Gorse bushes. As for marine fauna we can see bird species such as the Yellow-legged Seagull or the European Shag. Although rather less likely, it is worth scanning the horizon in search of dolphins and whales. This route allows one to visit the natural harbour of Dexo, a cove that permitted access to the sea and its resources for the old village, originally a farming community.
