This used to be a totally unspoilt, beautiful empty location that required a little adventure to find and discover as the only access was along very rough tracks. The result was that you had a great beach which you only shared with other people who...More

Found this stunning beach. Good shaded car park and walk down via a boardwalk. Lovely sandy beach, lots of space and not busy. We had loads of fun playing in the waves and chilling on the beach.

Excellent trip for biking (also nice by walking). About 6 km from the highway. You can see beautiful landscape, birds, the Salinas and of course the beach. No bars around. Bring your own food/water. Forest guards always around, nice people. It is a national park...More

No restaurants, no chiringuito, not anything. Bring your own drinks and food. Still my favorite beach in the whole Costa Cálida.

The road is dreadful and has bumps and humps. Having parked the car you have to walk 400mts down to the beach.

Really enjoyed totally undeveloped national park. Rough road to get to it but well with it. Refreshing change from overdeveloped coastlines. Take picnic and water as nothing along the hike

Even in winter this place is worth visiting. It is a wild and unspoiled coastline and lovely to walk in the crisp winter air. Whatever you need in terms of food, drink etc you need to take with you.

In November the chances are you will have the area of Calblanque to yourself. There are several beach areas and several signed coastal walks, partly as boardwalks. In the past I’ve seen kite surfers there in the summer. There are two car parks plus an...More
