Cartagena, Calblanque beach
Cartagena beaches, natural unspoilt coastline in protected parkland
The Calblanque beach is located within the protection of the Calblanque Natural park, a conservation area which includes a stretch of undeveloped virgin coastline.
The Park itself is popular with evening walkers, and is a very pleasant place to enjoy a coast-top walk in the winter or on a summer evening, but wear strong footwear and use a walking stick if possible as the terrain undulates and is slippery with stones in some places.
The Calblanque beaches stretch out along the coastline, fringed with dunes, and rocky bays, with naturally golden sand. They´re undeveloped, but of course, this also renders the access more difficult, so these beaches are not suitable for those with disabilities or mobility issues.
During the peak summer weeks there is lifeguard cover between 11am and 7pm on the main Calblanque beach, but nothing on the more inaccessible beaches which can be accessed on foot or by boat.
During the peak summer weeks, access is restricted to the Calblanque beach, due to the restricted amount of parking near to the main beach itself and its location within a protected park area.
Access to the beach
Approaching Calblanque via the Autopista A-7 Alicante-Cartagena, take exit 800, which leads to Mar Menor, la Manga-Cabo de Palos.
You´ll see a sign for the MU-312, signposted for Calblanque.
