Punta Brava

Punta Brava is an excellent place to stop because it has a viewpoint from where you get a real feel for the area. You can see right across the calm waters of the Mar Menor to its islands and the La Manga Strip beyond. If you look in the opposite direction the views of the Sierra Mineras are just as stunning. You can simply marvel from the road, or follow the walking route around the hill to its top for even more amazing vistas.

Punta Brava also has a lovely long beach and promenade; both connect into the beach and the promenade of the village of Los Urrutias to the south.
