Day Out Calblanque Regional Park
The Calblanque Regional Park, which has been a Protected Natural Area since 1987 and Nature Reserve since 1992 makes for a great day out. It covers an area of 2400 hectares and has 13 kilometres of coastline. Within its boundaries is an awe inspiring collection of wonderful sand beaches, sandbanks, arid hills, cliff tops and salt flats all of great ecological value.
This Nature Reserve represents one of the last untouched areas along the Mediterranean coastline and is truly unspoilt. There are no facilities here (apart from some toilets at the visitors centre) so don’t forget to pack a picnic! Please be aware that the undercurrents are strong in this area as the bottom of the sea drops steeply away in line with the cliffs above.
