Cabo Roig is a charming coastal town nestled in the Costa Blanca on the east coast of Spain. It’s home to two blue flag beaches. And it’s just a 45-minute drive from Alicante airport. If its convenience alone isn’t enough to tempt you, here at Relax Ireland, we’ll give you another five reasons why you should visit Cabo Roig.
The sun is always shining over the Costa Blanca
. With over 300 days of sunshine each year and an average daily temperature of 20 degrees, you can enjoy glorious weather all year round in Cabo Roig. In the hot summer month’s you’ll be cooled by a fresh sea breeze. And in the spring and autumn, the mountains surrounding Carbo Roig will protect you from the cold north winds. So no matter what season you choose to visit, you’ll always find glorious weather in Cabo Roig.
Cabo Roig is home to two pristine blue flag beaches, all within walking distance of the town. Playa Capitan
and Playa Cala Caleta are covered in soft, golden sand which slopes gently into the sea. So they’re perfect for families with young children.
From Cala Caleta, you can also walk to La Zenia and Playa Flamenca along a rocky coastal path with incredible views. And there’s plenty of hidden coves to explore along the way.
Fresh Local Cuisine
Number 3 on our list of five reasons to visit Cabo Roig is the delicious local cuisine. On the Cabo Roig strip, you’ll find a true taste of the Mediterranean. Here, you can enjoy a range of fresh seafood combined with locally harvested produce. And we highly recommend the seafood paella and fish stew.
To accompany your meal, choose from a range of locally produced wines. And for afters, how about Jijona ice cream? This is a delicious homemade nougat flavoured ice cream that’s made from local almonds. And if ice cream isn’t your thing, you’ll be sure to find a treat amongst the selection of delicate homemade pastries on offer.
Activities for the Whole Family
When you want a change from basking on the beach, head over to Cabo Roig Marina for a bit of action. Due to a recent 2 million euro renovation, it’s one of the best marinas on the whole of the Costa Blanca.
Here, you can leisurely watch the yachts mooring, or explore the many shops, bars and restaurants. At Cabo Roig Marina, you’ll also find a huge range of water activities on offer for all the family.
As well as this, Carbo Roig is also within proximity of three world-class, 18-hole golf courses. Campoamor, Las Ramblas and Villamartin
are all within a 15-minute drive.
Relaxing Mediterranean Atmosphere
In Cabo Roig, you’ll be instantly absorbed by the laid back Mediterranean atmosphere. As you stroll down the palm tree-lined avenues, gazing out into the calm sea, you’ll feel relaxed and a million miles away from the stresses of home.
With long hot summers and mild sunny winters, in Cabo Roig, you can enjoy al-fresco dining all year round. Surrounded by stunning coastal scenery and picturesque, pristine beaches, so typical of the Mediterranean.
