Costa Calida Attractions - Calblanque

Calblanque Nature Reserve - Cartagena - Murcia - Spain


Lying just south of La Manga and the Mar Menor on the Costa Calida, Spain, is a rare stretch of unspoilt Mediterranean coastline known as Calblanque. Now officially named as a Natural Park the area is protected from the development which has spoiled much of the neighbouring coastline.

Calblanque is an area of exceptional beauty and tranquility with fine golden, sandy beaches and clear, sparkling waters. It stretches along 13 km of the coast and consists of beaches, peaceful coves, ancient sand dunes, stunning rock formations, beautiful walking trails and pine forests


 Calblanque Nature Reserve

 Playa Calblanque / Calblanque Beach

 
The peaceful beaches are one of the main attractions - the most popular being Playa Calblanque, Playa Larga and Playa de las Cañas. The clear blue Mediterranean waters attract scuba divers from all over the world and it is an ideal location for this more modern pursuit. There are many peaceful coves to explore and due to the remoteness of the area you may even find yourself alone in one of these coves and sit and imagine yourself as Robinson Crusoe marooned on a desert island. Calblanque has a wide variety of wildlife and you may get to see an endangered species which survives in the area - the sea turtle (tortuga mora). Other rare species include the eagle owl (Bonelli's eagle).

On the outskirts of the park you may be lucky to find the remains of old mines, once producers of silver, copper and tin, a reminder or the area's past history.

The Nature Reserve is a very fragile and delicate environmental system, therefore keep in mind, please, the next suggestions: Follow the established tracks, do not step on the dunes or vegetation, do not disturb the birds. Unleashed dogs, bonfires, camping, car parking (outside the established sites) and picnic are non allowed activities. Thank you for regarding these few rules.

Naturist people like Calblanque beaches. Respect the privacity of the people you see, wether they are naked, dressed up or wearing a bathing costume

How to get there:


The rough unpaved roads are very dusty and, be warned, the dust is very sticky. The best sort of vehicle to use is definitely a hire car.

The only road access is from the MU-312, just after you pass Los Belones, heading towards La Manga strip (ie east). There is a single sign pointing to Calblanque. At the top of the slip road you turn immediately right (across the service road) onto the dirt road whch crosses a large field before reaching the first junction.

Maps of Calblanque tend to be a bit jumbled, with a mixture of roads, tracks and paths, but getting lost is quite good fun. Basically, at the first junction take the road to the left, to go to the salt beds and the largest beach. The road to the right takes you more into the centre of the park and two more beaches. There are several covered parking areas and wooden walkways.
