Cabo Roig

Located on the Southern Costa Blanca coastline is the popular and delightful seaside resort of Cabo Roig. Well loved for its superb sandy “blue flag” beaches, its stunning views of the sparkling blue Mediterranean, its picturesque cliff walks and its busy nightlife, Cabo Roig has plenty to offer the discerning holidaymaker.

Generally quiet during the winter months, Cabo Roig comes to life around May time and is often busy right through to November. Cabo Roig attracts holidaymakers from all over the world but primarily English, Irish and Spanish (particularly those from the city of Murcia who love this stretch of the coast). The busiest months are July and August, the quietest January and February.

The eye-catching 16th century watchtower, around which Cabo Roig originally grew, is now part of a restaurant complex 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.

Cabo Roig boasts a couple of excellent clean sandy beaches and these are a big draw for the holidaymaker during the hot summer months, they do however rarely get uncomfortably packed and you can usually find a nice spot to sit and enjoy some serious sunbathing. The beaches are well maintained and safe for children and pedalos are available for hire for those who want a little exercise and adventure.

There is a superb cliff walk from Cabo Roig beach to La Zenia beach and there are numerous secluded coves where you can catch the sun with very little company, even during the summer season. If you prefer to catch something a little more exciting, the fishing is also wonderful and the dorada in particular give a fine fight on light gear. The water is crystal clear and ideal for scuba diving, snorkeling and spear fishing. Sailing, wind surfing, jet skiing and boat-hire are other popular activities available in the area.

Cabo Roig like the whole of the Costa Blanca, enjoys a wonderful climate and it is claimed to be the most temperate region in the whole of Spain. The area enjoys well over 300 days of sun each year and has an average temperature of approximately 20 degrees centigrade. There is very little rainfall in Cabo Roig and what does fall occurs mostly during the winter months (mostly in November and February). For those who don’t like it too hot, May and October are perhaps the most pleasant months to visit, sun worshippers will hit the beaches of Cabo Roig in July and August and “bake” in temperatures that can reach 40 degrees centigrade.

Cabo Roig has a fine variety of shops, restaurants and bars, mostly centered around the well known Cabo Roig “strip” where there is plenty of choice for all ages and tastes. There are some fine restaurants for the discerning eater and also plenty of pub grub, fast food and takeaway establishments.

There is plenty to see and do in and around Cabo Roig.  For golfers there are 3 excellent golf courses within a 5 minute drive and other no more than a half hour away. The go-karts at Punta Prima will be popular with the children and this is a great place to spend an hour or two, they offer cars for all age groups and abilities and even have some mini-carts and mini-quads for the young ones. Be sure to take a trip into the local town of Torrevieja, the busy Friday market is huge and is well worth a visit.

Cabo Roig, “the jewel of the Costa Blanca”, a perfect spot to re-locate, an ideal destination for a family holiday or just a nice place for a short visit.

Cabo Roig lies just off the N-332 road between Torrevieja and Pilar de la Horadada, and is just a twenty minute drive from San Javier (Murcia) airport. Also close by is the AP-7 motorway which will get you to Alicante airport in around forty five minutes.
