Calblanque Regional Park

Calblanque Regional Park

The Calblanque Regional Park is located near the Mar Menor and is approximately 13km in length. It consists of stretch of unspoilt coastline with sandy beaches, small coves, dunes, cliffs and forested hills. The mountains rise to about 1000 ft and appear to plunge into the sea.

The area is crisscrossed with walking trails. Some of which can be horse ridden or cycled.

Slightly back from the shoreline there are fossilised dunes. On the outskirts of the park there are remains of old mines, once producers of silver, copper and tin, a reminder or the area's past history.

The Calblanque Regional Park is home to storks, flamingos, gulls, eagle owls and Bonelli's eagles as well as many other species.

There is abundant vegetation with plant species such as palmettos, wolfwort, Phoenician juniper, pine, carob and fig trees.
