Cabo Roig Beaches
Cabo Roig is known for its clean blue flag beaches and is popular for tourists from Northern Europe as well as the residents of the neighbouring region of Murcia who often flock to the beaches at the weekends.
Cabo Roig is a typical seasonal holiday destination busiest over the summer months of July and August and at its quietest in the winter.
Often it is May and October which are the best times to visit Cabo Roig as the weather is warm, not too hot and humid and not as busy as it becomes during the school holidays.
There are a few beaches one can visit while vacationing in Cabo Roig which are Playa Cala Capitan and Playa Cala Caleta which are clean and safe for children.
Also within easy walking distance are the beaches at La Zenia, Playa Flamenca and Campoamor. Make sure you visit the historic Cabo Roig watchtower.
Cabo Roig Marina
The Cabo Roig Marina is one of the best marinas on the popular Costa Blanca coastline. Located in an attractive area it has over two hundred mooring spaces, a restaurant and some other good facilities.
Cabo Roig Marina
The eye-catching 16th century watchtower, around which Cabo Roig originally grew, is now part of a restaurant complex (The CR Restaurant) which overlooks the recently modernised marina.
An estimated 2 million euros was spent on the refurbishment of what is now one of the Costa Blanca’s most desirable mooring spots.
The marina is located by the well-known Cala Caleta beach and meandering above the marina is the pretty Cabo Roig to La Zenia cliff walk.
Things to Do and See in Cabo Roig
We have a great list below of things to do in Cabo Roig and surrounding area. We especially focus on things to do for families with children as we know this is the majority of visitors who holiday in Cabo Roig, of course the beaches and water park nearby are your most obvious attractions.
For those that look to go on walking holidays Cabo Roig offers many walks on the cliff-tops.
Be sure to try out the well known cliff walk which runs from Cala Caleta beach to La Zenia beach;this is an ideal way to spend an evening during the bright summer months and will provide a very welcome cooling breeze on those hot muggy days. The walk offers some picturesque views of the sea and coastline and there are some interesting coves to explore along the way.
On a clear day it is possible to catch a glimpse of La Manga in the distance. There is often a cooling sea-breeze on the Costa Blanca which is badly needed during the hot summer days so walkers will be in their element.
To the south of Cabo Roig are Campoamor, Pilar de la Horadada, San Pedro del Pinatar and La Manga, all tourist resorts with fantastic blue beaches, great restaurants, shops and La Manga of course is famous for its golf-course, The La Manga Club.
Torrevieja is the nearest major town and worth a visit. How much is a taxi to Torrevieja? From Lomas de Cabo Roig to the bus station in Torrevieja, a taxi fare is €23 but that was on a Sunday and €20 one-way is the average taxi fare I have heard friends pay. The cheapest I have heard of is €17 from the Cabo Roig Strip to the port in Torrevieja. Alternatively the bus from Cabo Roig to Torrevieja is only just €1.40!
Cabo Roig Strip
You are spoilt for choice with the fine cuisine and restaurants of Cabo Roig. With some restaurants winning Five Star awards, it’s no wonder that the locals choose to spend the warm evenings dining with their families in the resort.
There are a number of bars in the area which provide good quality, nightly entertainment for adults and children.
Most restaurants and bars are situated along the famous Cabo Roig Strip. This is covered in our nightlife page.
If you want the most lively place on the Costa Blanca, that is unquestionably Benidorm with its bars, karaoke singing, cheesy tribute bands and risque acts such as Sticky Vicky.
On the Cabo Roig restaurant and Cabo Roig bar and pub front the following come highly recommended Blu, Life Bar, Piranahs, VIP Lounge, Shalimar, The Loft, The Italian Affair, Listers, Asia Chic, Sinatra, Diablos Bar, The Cella, Some Place Else, Chiringuita, The Harley Bar, La Tasca, Green Chill, China Town, Bar Med, The Living Room, Bar Liquid, The Bay Tree, Happy Dayz, Reggies, Krazy Chris, Skala Club, Le Paradis, Kazbar, The Bushwacka, Shakira II, Blue Mesa, La Frontera, The Pasty Shack, Rubies, Bar Mono, The Trinity, The Bog Road, The Nut House, New World, The Queen Victoria, Rianxeira, Smiling Jacks, The Wel, Paddy’s Point, Pharaoh’s Sports Bar, Maguires, Johnny B’s, Havana Bar, The Bistro, Wok Buffet, O’Donovans and La Bahia. As you can see there are plenty of nightlife options in Cabo Roig.
As an alternative to Cabo Roig try the Villamartin Plaza for more restaurants and entertainment 6 km away.
If you are a tennis player the Cabo Roig Club lies next to the beach of Cala Capetan. The club has four hard courts, its own swimming pool, bar and restaurant. Qualified tennis coaching is also available.
If horse riding is your hobby you can take a ride in the Spanish countryside, within a 5 minute car ride is The Ranch at Campoamor. There is also Club Hipco near Villamartin, El Rancho at Los Montesinos and El Refugio Guardamar.
If you are on holiday in Cabo Roig and interested in scuba diving, you can dive from Playa Flamenca under the supervision of PADI professionals. For advanced divers they have trips to several exciting wrecks and the marine reserve. They also offer escorted dive trips from shore, boat diving and night diving in the warm Mediterranean waters. Contact: Scubaworld or telephone 0034 667057640.
Rio Safari Park
If you would like to take a day trip from Cabo Roig to a safari park the nearest one is in Elche where you can enjoy nature amongst 4,000 palm trees and take a ride on the mini train. Enjoy the aqua terrarium, aviary, crocodile land and all the different animal exhibitions. In summer you can splash in the swimming pool, visit the ice-cream parlour, picnic area and enjoy the speed of karting. Elche itself is famous for its thousands of palm trees. Website: https://riosafari.com/
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.

Of course the local markets on the Costa Blanca are not to be missed, there is a huge one in Torrevieja on Fridays and one in Campoamor on Fridays.
Within drivable distance to Torrevieja is also a water park called Aquapolis.
Torrevieja is also known for its superb promenade and restaurants and daily craft market, the fun fair and the new Habaneras shopping centre.
Torrevieja also boasts the biggest marina in Spain, has a large number of bowling greens and even offers hot air ballooning.
There are a number of historic Spanish cities within an hour’s drive of Cabo Roig – Murcia, Cartagena, Orihuela, Elche and Alicante. Also La Manga and the Mar Menor are well worth a visit.
There is also no need to drive all the way to Benidorm to visit Terra Natura/Aqua Natura as there is also now a Terra Natura (zoo) and Aqua Natura (water park) in Murcia also.
Aquópolis Water Park in nearby Torrevieja is not as large as Aqualandia in Benidorm but is a better option considering it is much less travelling time (look out for the offer of extra day for just €6 upon exit).
For roller-coasters and rides for all the family go to the Terra Mitica Theme Park in Benidorm.
For the ladies wanting to pick up some bargains and do a shopping excursion, there are two massive shopping malls in Murcia, including a massive Ikea and everybody’s favourite, Primark.
If you come to Cabo Roig with ailments why not take a medicinal bath in the waters of the lagoon at La Manga, which have curative properties, recommended for heart trouble, rheumatism & respiratory problems.
Another interesting day trip can be taken to the coves at Canelobre.

Font de Algar Natural waterfalls in the mountains, fantastic day out for all the family. Lifeguards on duty at the diving points. Picnic areas along the route and restaurant at the end.
Guadalest Hill top monastery North West of Benidorm, be brave and go right to the top. Take an extra layer with you if you are there after the sun goes down.
The Casino in Torrevieja (now a restaurant) very old and picturesque. Have a traditional Spanish breakfast and watch the bustle around the port.
Take a boat trip from Torrevieja port to Isla de Tabarca for the day.
La Encarnacion (Hotel/Spa/Restaurant) Los Alcazareas (Mar Menor) steeped in history, checkout the photos inside marking its past.
San Antonio (restaurant on stilts) in Los Alcazareas, enjoy a meal or a drink anytime on top of the water.
Los Alcazareas La Manga/Mar Menor Strip largest inland sea in Europe. Watersports etc. The water is always several degrees warmer than the Mediterranean.
Try this: with a car travel South on the AP7 following signs for El Algar then take the MU312 to Los Belonis and then follow signs for Parque Regional Calblanque following signs for beaches (Calblanque or Largo) all un commercialised and unspoilt, so take your own packed lunch. Fantastic beaches and coves.
Follow this with a short drive east on the MU 312 till you get to Cabo de Palos and stop for a meal at La Tana Restaurant followed by a drive up the La Manga strip or a boat trip by sail from Cabo de Palos port round the headland (2 hours).
Where To Stay – Accommodation
The local tourist office offers a service where they can help you find accommodation in Cabo Roig. There are hotels, pensions, apart-hotels and hostels.
For instance for Cabo Roig hotels there is the Playamarina I and II aparthotel situated in the heart of the Cabo Roig ‘Strip’. Their two and three-bedroom self-catering apartments are modern and well-equipped with everything you need.
Playamarina 1 Aparthotel
Two-double Bedroom Holiday Apartment Sleeps 6 – Direct From the Owner
A beautiful, modern apartment with pool and jacuzzi in ‘The Jewel of the Costa Blanca’, this property is ‘beach-side’ of the N332 dual carriageway which makes getting to the beach much easier than properties situated on the other side of Cabo Roig with crossing points along the main road.

Close to Cabo Roig is the Orihuela Costa Resort leisure complex with superb facilities including large swimming pool, tennis courts, gym, sauna, bars and restaurant.
Official Cabo Roig Tourist Information Office
Incredibly there is no official tourist office (oficina de turismo) in one of the Costa Blanca’s most popular resorts!
Hopefully this will change soon, in the meantime the nearest offices would appear to be in Playa Flamenca or Torrevieja.
These tourist centre offices can help you will local information such as maps, guides, brochures, help with accommodation and they can answer any questions you have about dates for festivals, fiestas, weather information, transport and airport transfers to Cabo Roig.
Moving to Cabo Roig
If you are thinking of moving to Cabo Roig, then you must read our expat interview with Colin David of El Siglo Properties below:
Colin, what would you say would be the advantages to living in Cabo Roig compared to other Costa Blanca towns?
There are many advantages to living in the Cabo Roig area which is in Orihuela Costa, Alicante region of Spain. Firstly is that the world health organisation recognises it as one of the healthiest places to live in the world due to the special micro climate that is created by the many salt lakes in the area spread over a fairly level plain surrounded by the mountains. Therefore people who suffer from breathing difficulties, arthritis, rheumatism etc will feel a lot better living in this region.
Just 2.5 – 3km’s inland behind Cabo Roig are the three championship 18-hole golf courses, namely Villamartin, Campoamor and Las Ramblas, good for golfers but also does a major role in keeping the various businesses in our area open all year round, so you will never have any problems in finding excellent bars, restaurants, health services and shops near Cabo Roig.
Cabo Roig is a seaside area and has the well-known Cabo Roig strip with several aparthotels and private dwellings on the opposite which all benefit from a huge selection of shops, bars and restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets plus a health centre.
There is a local bus service that takes you up to the golf courses and the fantastic new shopping centre called La Zenia Boulevard. Here you will find many famous name shops including Zara, Zara Home, C&A, Primark, H&M, Mango, Pull & Bear, Springfields, Swarovski, Alcampo, Decathlon and Leroy Merlin, a casino, bowling alley to name just a few. This centre puts on regular daily free entertainment while upstairs you will find many restaurants and a large children’s play area.
Cabo Roig offers an excellent coastal footpath and is a short walk to a lovely south-facing sandy beach and yacht marina. On the other side of Cabo Roig is the long sandy beach of Campoamor with a yacht marina further ahead. Many property buyers are tempted to purchase a second home in the Orihuela Costa as prices in some parts have fallen by up to 50%, offering a great deal for future investment.
Would the area not suit certain types of people, i.e. are there any possible downsides?
The area suits all ages with plenty to do for everyone with no real drawbacks.
What proportion of the local population are Spanish?
In the Orihuela Costa the population of Spanish is quite low as many here are either from the UK, Ireland, Dutch, Belgium , French, Russian or Scandinavian.
What are your favourite things to do in the area?
Golf, Beaches, shopping, sightseeing, eating out, Go Karting, Cinema. In Torrevieja the cinema shows a couple of multi screen films in English via headsets. There are also 10-pin bowling, casino and some lovely coastal walks on designated pathways.
Can you give us some insider tips to the best bars or restaurants?
Puccini Italian restaurant on Cabo Roig Strip, Balti Towers Indian restaurant on Cabo Roig Strip, Le Chic Asian restaurant on opposite side of road to the strip, Argentinian steak restaurant on the strip, Number 5 restaurant on the strip, Italian Affair on the strip, these are just a small selection of some of the best in this area, there are many many more….
Are there many facilities such as doctors and dentists, shops etc?
Yes. A health centre and a general hospital are close by and found on the outskirts of Torrevieja town a few kms away, plus several private dentists etc.
Are there smaller villages nearby that you might also recommend?
San Miguel De Salinas, Montesinos, Mil Palmeras, Torre de la Horadada, Pilar de la Horadada and Pagan on the Mar Menor and some interesting Spanish towns near to Cabo Roig.
What are the nearest international schools and how good are they?
The nearest International private school is just 10 minutes drive inland behind Cabo Roig at Blue Lagoon, El Galan area and is apparently a very good school. The Spanish public schools can be found in Playa Flamenca and Los Dolses with mixed reviews.
Is crime an issue for expats?
No worse than any other areas, just need to be careful in the local markets and busy packed areas where pickpockets hang out.
Coming onto buying property, what is the market like now in terms of prices going up, or down or staying the same?
Properties on the Orihuela Costa are still excellent value for money and are currently selling a lot faster compared to a few years ago. The general consensus is that we are starting to see an increase in the prices which becomes more and more apparent as we get nearer to the beaches.
Is this a good time to buy and are there any repossessions or very cheap properties still available to buy?
Yes, this is a very good time to buy before the prices go up due mainly to many other nationalities wanting to live under the sun while they take advantage of the regular cheap flights from their country of origin.
What urbanisations are there and can you describe each one and how they might differ from each other?
The Orihuela Costa comprises Campoamor, Cabo Roig, La Zenia, Playa Flamenca and Punta Prima, all of these are next to the coastline. Punta Prima and Campoamor are more Spanish and less popular with the English as opposed to the others which are more international, offering a vast amount of services and facilities to English-speaking nationalities. Further back inland on the Orihuela Costa are La Florida, Los Dolces, Villamartin golf, Dehesa de Campoamor, Campoamor golf resort, Las Ramblas golf resort, El Galan, Blue Lagoon, Eagles Nest, Los Balcones and Los Altos. The three golf resorts offer quality-built properties on the golf courses with high standards obviously good for golfers and people looking for a peaceful quality life style. The other areas mentioned are all good and offer similar facilities and amenities, the furthest back is only 10 minutes drive to the nearest beach.
How much are the typical property prices in Cabo Roig for apartments, villas etc?
Apartments with 2 bedrooms in Cabo Roig start from around €75,000, town houses with 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms start at around €135,000 and villas start at around €250,000.
Any tips and advice to people looking to buy in Cabo Roig or surrounding area?
Use a qualified solicitor who we can also recommend should you, as a buyer, require assistance. Try and establish what you need the property for. If it is to rent out, then it is important to be as close to the beach and facilities as you can afford. If it is to live in full time, then you may wish to be up to 10 minutes back from the coast in a more normal residential lived-in area, plus you can expect to get more for your money the further back you go. For full time living go back at various times of the day to make sure there are no noisy bars, owners nearby with noisy dogs etc. If you want the winter sun then buy a property facing south.

I spent an afternoon here with two adults and eight children. It is a good place to shop with children as it is clean, tidy and relatively easy to keep an eye on the kids. Nice shops, friendly staff and good places to eat and drink when required. As it is outside and not enclosed in a buliding it isabit like walking in a small town.

We were recommended to this beach by a long-time resident. Although it’s only round the corner from La Zenia, which can be dangerous, Cala Capitan is safe, gently shelving and sandy – but crowded.

A new addition to the Plaza Square, ( formerly Sapphire cocktail bar) Gin And Fizz Gin Bar. Really great bar for pre / post meal drinks.
130 Gins to choose from, all meticulously presented with attention to detail.
Some of the Gins are more expensive but the extensive menu has all the prices so you are fully aware before you order. Ian and Tracey, the owners were great and very knowledgeable and also very friendly.
If Gin is not you drink , there are plenty of other options to choose.
At the moment they are not opening Sunday and Monday evenings so if you are planning a visit avoid these days.
Well worth calling next time you are in or near Villa Martin Plaza.

The beach here is a blue flag one with disabled access and a chair for disabled visitors to go into the water – see the lifeguards. Lifeguards of course – please follow their instructions you can be fined if you don’t plus its just common sense.
The beach is a long one, lovely soft sand. The usual chiringuito (beach bar) with snacks, drinks, meals, ice creams. You get the key for the toilets from them.
Parking is now either in the side streets or on the waste ground in front of the bridge with the arches below. Not enough of it. Until fairly recently you could park down the road on one side but yellow lines have now appeared so this is a no no now. I would imagine anyone who has difficulty walking will find this a real problem as the parking surface on the field is very rough – buggies and wheelchairs will be very difficult to push. Why could there not be wheelchair/family parking along the road?
You are able to rent sunbeds and umbrellas on the beach, 15€ for the package but if you are planning a few days on the beach its worth buying your own at one of the many Chinese shops along the coast. Go early, especially at weekends!

The raised breakwater boardwalk is longer than you think – you spot the statue at the curve and think that’s it – well actually it’s only half distance! Not sure of the length in total but reckon it must be near a mile. The main walkway is made of railway sleeper type logs but not as thick and a narrow paved path is to one side. Be careful if you walk along the planks without footwear as a number of the fixing screws have worked loose and become slightly raised in places. The statue half way is interesting, sculpted by Carmen Fraile (name’s on the plinth!) and alongside is a water Fountain. Walking along you get views over the marina and also the submarine museum moored up at the jetty across wasteland. A boat rental/water ski area is at the end of the marina and no doubt interesting to watch the goings on in summer (it was closed when I was there mid November). Fishermen gather along rocks around the lighthouse and a number of cats hang around the bench area and stairs nearby – looking over the railing I noticed a couple of small huts and food bowls so they’re obviously well fed and looked after – when I sat down one insisted on trying to snooze on my lap! If it’s a hot day you can walk along the bottom road which is in the shade.
A pleasant walk, nice views and good for exercise!

Cabo Roig – The best beaches of the Costa Blanca
Roig (or as it is also called – Cabo
Roych, in the Valencian manner) is
small but very prestigious village,
located on the south coast
Costa Blanca. He is in
on a small cape with characteristic
terrain almost red rocks,
where exactly did its name come from
— Red Cape. Cabo Roig refers to
Municipality of Orihuela (Orihuela Costa),
like all other towns and cities to the south
from Torrevieja to Pilar de la Horadada. nine0003
Beaches and Coves
There are two very
pretty beaches – Cala Coleta (his
also called Cabo Roig Beach) and Cala
Captain, comfortably settled in small
bays. Both of them were awarded Blue
EU flags for cleanliness and good service:
it should be noted that both the descent to the sea and the
beaches are wheelchair accessible,
which makes them even more attractive.
And so – fine white sand, transparent
water, calm sea, beautiful views,—
a truly heavenly place. .. K
both beaches are easy to get to
car: there are many parking lots in the town, where
there are always empty seats. nine0003
smoothly passes into a small port, where
boats and yachts sway on the waves,
pleasantly creaking gear in the wind:
here you can rent a boat with a captain
or without, go windsurfing,
flyboarding or diving, take on
jet ski rental, etc. – with
interesting offers every year
for vacationers more and more. And in
port, and on the embankment – many
bars, restaurants and eateries on any
taste. Due to the proximity of the yacht club and the seaside
boulevard this beach is always enough
crowded: even in winter there are many
basking in the sun and even swimming
people, both locals and tourists,
– mainly from the northern countries of Europe. nine0003
less noisy holiday, especially for families
with children, we recommend Cala Capitan beach
– the sea here is shallow, warm and always
calm. The beach is equipped no worse than
Cala Coleta, has all the necessary services
Beyond the waterfront
and the port, it is worth noting the wonderful
walking path connecting both
beach: there is always a pleasant sea
breeze, the air is saturated with aromas
bushes blooming almost all year round and
