Calblanque is one of the few remaining stretches of Mediterranean coastline that can be honestly described as unspoiled. Protected by its status as a national park, the area is free of disappointingly soulless resorts and instead offers visitors a selection of remote, small, sandy coves and beautiful geological formations, and inland, deserted hills blanketed in woodland and salt lakes which attract an abundance of native wildlife. The best way to visit is on foot – so pack a rucksack containing your swimwear and snorkelling gear and enough supplies for the day, and set out on a little expedition. You won’t be disappointed…

A gem!

For those who do not need a beach bar/restaurant but instead want acres (13km in length) of beautiful sand, a nature reserve, dunes and tranquility Calblanque is unbeatable.

Nudity is accepted pretty much everywhere on Spanish beaches and Calblanque is no exception, however realistically if being au natural is your wish then go to Cala Negrete at the far end (away to the right as you come onto the beach). This can also be reached by taking the rough road from Playa Larga.

If you enjoy the aforesaid peace and tranquility then Calblanque is for you, however exercise caution because there is no shade - a parasol, umbrella, sunhat and lots of water are required.
