Cabo Roir Review - The Marina View of the Bay Cala Caleta Beach


Informative Review of Cabo Roig

Wide palm-lined avenues, clean white sandy beaches and stunning detached villas - this is Cabo Roig an impressive resort on the Southern Costa Blanca, Spain. Located on the Orihuela Costa stretch of the Costa Blanca coastline, Cabo Roig is a popular destination for holidaymakers from all over Europe and in fact all over the world. The Spanish themselves love the resort and many head there, particularly from the city of Murcia, during the hot summer months, especially during August when many of the Spanish people take the whole month off for their annual vacation. Cabo Roig is usually very busy from May to November and fairly quiet during the winter months.

The obtrusive watchtower which is the most famous landmark of Cabo Roig dates from the 16th century and was originally built to warn of attacks from Berber pirates who assailed the coastline in those long gone times. The tower now adjoins a restaurant, a great place for a quiet drink as it looks down over the marina and across the sea to La Manga. This is also the starting point for the wonderful cliff walk to La Zenia.

Cabo Roig has 2 excellent “white flag” beaches (Cala Capitan and Cala Caleta) and is also within easy reach of other fine beaches at La Zenia and Campoamor. If you are staying in Cabo Roig you will find it worthwhile to take a trip down to the fantastic beaches of the Mar Menor (Lesser Sea), try to head for Lo Pagan which has a superb beach and is also the site of the famous healing mud baths (La Puntica), where thousands visit each year to enjoy the therapeutic effects of the mud.

One of the most popular things to do whilst in Cabo Roig is to take a stroll along the picturesque cliff walk to La Zenia. This walk provides some wonderful views of the Mediterranean and the surrounding coastline, with the exclusive resort of La Manga laying invitingly in the distance. Construction work is currently being done on some stretches of the coastal path, currently at La Zenia and Playa Flamenca and the planned promenade and coastal path should eventually run from Torrevieja all the way to Campoamor, it will then surely be one of the best walks along the Costa Blanca coastline.

Cabo Roig has a wonderful climate and the sun shines on over three hundred days per year, the mean temperature being about 20 degrees C. You can usually expect to see little rainfall between May and October and the days are generally long and sunny. When rain does fall it is usually during the winter months, November and February being the most common months for rain. December and January are usually sunny and pleasant but with cold nights.

There are a wide range of bars and restaurants in the area, particularly along Cabo Roig strip (sometimes called "Aguamarina strip"), offering a wide range of cuisines including Spanish, Italian, Mexican, Indian, Chinese, Greek, Hungarian and of course English and Irish. There are also plenty of fast food establishments offering the usual burgers and kebabs.

During your visit you may want to venture out from Cabo Roig and enjoy some of the other attractions on offer. A trip to the Rio Safari at Elche is a very rewarding experience and the kids will love feeding the animals and riding on the “train” through the park. Perhaps a round of golf is more your “thing”, there are three excellent golf courses nearby at Villamartin, Campoamor and Las Ramblas. Maybe you could take a coach trip to Benidorm (if you haven’t hired a car) and marvel at the busiest seaside resort in Europe, or visit one of the regions historical cities, Cartagena, Murcia or Alicante have plenty of interesting sight to see.

One of the Costa Blanca’s prime locations - Cabo Roig will surely not disappoint you. Book a flight and enjoy the sunshine sometime soon.

Cabo Roig is located on the N-332 coastal road between Torrevieja and Campoamor and is readily accessed from the AP-7 motorway (Dehesa de Campoamor exit or La Zenia exit), it is convenient for both Alicante (45 minutes) and Murcia (20 minutes) airports.
