Calblanque Regional Park – the untouched area along the costline

The Calblanque Regional Park is a coastal destination in the Region of Murcia, which has been a Protected Natural Area since 1987 and Nature Reserve since 1992, makes for a great day out. If you like quiet, natural places…put Calblanque first on your list.

It covers an area of 2400 hectares and has 13 kilometres of coastline.
That means that from the cove of Cala Reona, in Cabo de Palos, to the mining town of Portmán, one can enjoy the very nicely preserved environment of Calblanque, combining gorgeous coves, dunes, sand areas, salt flats and cliffs. The wildlife reserve of Parque Natural de Calblanque includes rocky formations that run parallel to the sea and descend softly to the flattest area: the Salinas del Rasall depression.

One of Calblanque beaches is Playa Larga, where one can take off all clothes and lay under the sun…nudity is allowed! Over one kilometer of fine golden sand where the sea whimsically plays with the land in peace and serenity. Its pristine waters and spectacular seabed, a diver’s favorite, make Calblanque “a sea-land paradise exhibiting the wildest, most natural side of the Murcian coastline”.

This Nature Reserve represents one of the last untouched areas along the Mediterranean coastline and is truly unspoilt. Its enormous natural wealth is based on its arid mountains, its long, ochre and golden-coloured beaches as well as its lonely coves, the formation of its fossil dunes, its white salt lakes and its mountain massifs, which contrast with the blue sea. There are no facilities here (apart from some toilets at the visitors centre) so don’t forget to pack a picnic!

To access the Calblanque Regional Park, get on the freeway to La Manga, take exit 10 and be ready to enjoy this Murcian jewel.
