Cabo Roig

Cabo Roig can be found 10 kilometres to the south of Torrevieja, on the southern Costa Blanca in eastern Spain.

Less than one hour’s drive from Alicante Airport and around 30 minutes drive from Murcia San Javier Airport.

About town

The delightful town of old Cabo Roig has broad avenues lined with palms and landscaped gardens with views of the Mediterranean to the La Manga peninsula and the Mar Menor providing a picturesque setting alongside the lovely beaches.


Golf
Cabo Roig is an excellent location for golfers, being close to many fine championship courses, including the three Villamartin courses. The world famous La Manga golf complex is also within easy reach.

Beaches
There are many fine blue flag beaches close by. The beach next to Cabo Roig marina is very popular, with excellent views.

Cuisine
Cuisine from the Costa Blanca combines delicacies from both land and the Mediterranean
Sea. Many civilizations have lived in this area (Celts, Iberians, Greeks, Romans, Muslims), all of which have all left their mark on the gastronomy.

The diet is a typically, healthy Mediterranean one; the Costa Blanca is rich in fish, vegetables, olive-oil, rice and fruit and the ingredients which are all used to prepare delicious, healthy dishes, such as Paella Valenciana, Arroz Negro (black rice), Arroz al horno (Oven baked rice), Arroz a banda (fish and rice stew), Arroz del Señoret (Princes rice).

If you have a sweet tooth then you will enjoy the local homemade pastries and deserts that the area is famous for. Or Jijona ice-cream (Nougat), which is made with the almonds of the region.

While on the Costa Blanca you can delight the palate with the wonderful regional wine selection. It’s worth giving a special mention to the local wine ‘Jalon’, due to its quality and bouquet.

There are many international restaurants close by offering a wide choice of different cuisines from around the world.


Climate
The Cabo Roig enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate, with cool sea breezes in summer and protection by surrounding mountains against the cold North winds in winter. The area averages nearly 3,000 hours of sunshine each year and the
average temperature easily exceeds 20 degrees.

In 1986 the World Health Organisation recommended the climate of the area as one of the most equitable in the world - neither too hot in the summer nor too cold in the winter. On average it can boast 325 sunny days each year making it an
ideal all year round destination.

Cabo Roig is a very small friendly little place, it has plenty of good restaurants and bars. Not a lot for children for young adults except the excellent beach, more suitable for matured adults. Was not too impressed this year with the local Council nor Local Police. Local Council not doing enough to keep area clean and carrying out repairs to broken herbs, and removing graffiti. The local Police seem to spend their entire night shifts harassing the local bar owners over anything they can think off, Like no music must be heard after 22-30,all seats off the terraces at 2 am. They must realise that people are on holiday and should be allowed to enjoy themselves. The police would be better occupied in dealing with the illegal DVD sellers and the pest of so called musicians because this is where the real problems lie

Coast review

Costa Blanca always a nice place to go to.

Cabo Roig has something for everyone from the youngest to oldest holiday maker. Plenty of lively bars and restaurants happy to cater for children and teenagers, also livelier places for young adults but also quieter places for those who prefer. A choice of beaches and lovely coastal walks. Short way from the new La Zenia Boulevard shopping centre - well worth a visit with plenty of choices to eat and drink and play area with water fountains for the small children. Good place for a family or group holiday.

Coast review

Choice of beaches within walking distance those with shallow water for the younger children and others for those who like the bigger waves. Pedalo's and banana boat rides etc, beach bars, umbrellas and sun beds, a good choice for family or group holiday.

Cabo Roig has changed a great deal since the last visit we made (apx 5yrs ago). There are lively bars with entertaiment or quieter ones if prefered and restaurants for all tastes - something for everyone. Also plenty of shops (for gifts and beach toys) and supermarkets for everyday self-catering needs.

Coast review

Plenty of beaches to choose from (especially if you have transport) each having their own ideal quality - Punta Prima has a lovely rocky beach for fishing and a nice little bar by the rocks ideal for a sunset cocktail. Cabo Roig and La Zenia great for sunbathing etc.

Very English area, lots of English businesses, premiership football available at local pubs. Several wonderful beaches within easy walking distance. Lots of shop, restaurants but few leisure facilities for younger children apart from the beach.

Coast review

Wonderful coastline with plenty of facilities. Suffers a bit from a lack of transport links in Cabo Roig, but does have a Train service further up the coast.

Cabo Roig is a purely tourist area so much so that the lady at the museum in Cartagena (only 50km away) had never heard of it. There's not much more that beach and pool, if you don't have a car.

Coast review

Costa Blanca is a great family beach area and I would highly recommend it to people looking for sun, sea and sand. In the 9 weeks we were here it rained only one time and only for about 5 minutes. Loads of sunshine all the time. Great!

Cabo Roig is perfect for a relaxing holiday for families. The Cabo Roig 'Strip' has many different bars and restaurants to choose from and attractions such as the impressive Aquapolis water park and Torrevieja only a fifteen minute drive away with Murcia and Cartegena a little further but well worth the visit.

Coast review

Very pleasant with many good beaches in particular Guardamar which has a strong Spanish feel and only a 20 minute drive from Cabo Roig, less when traffic is light

The best thing about CAbo Roig is the beach. It is very nice and sandy, the water is clear and its just perfect for swimming or even a few activities in the water. The town itself though is terribly ugly, there is only one main road where all the stores are. These are either Chinese or English, so if you're planning to get to know some of the Spanish Culture thats the wrong place to do so, there's hardly anoyne besides the tourists!

Just perfect!
