This is one of the points of major interest along the western Mediterranean coast, specifically the Castellón coastline, due to its unique character and its rich land and sea ecosystems. The Columbretes islands form an archipelago made up of small islands of volcanic origin. The largest of these is called Illa Grossa, and its form evidences an ancient crater. Among the fauna found on the island are Eleanora's falcon, Audouin's gull and a rare species of sea tortoise. Sea life in the water around the islands is equally rich and varied. The park information centre is located in the planetarium of Castellón (tel. 964 28 89 12).
