Spain – May 2010 (Part 3)
Playa de Negrete
The final beach we visited during our week stay was the gorgeous Playa de Negrete.
The beach is located in Calblanque Regional Park between Cartagena and La Manga.
To get to the beach drive towards La Manga along the MU 312. Just before La Manga, you’ll come to Los Belones. Pass through here and you’ll see a sign for Calblanque (Via de Servicio) – take this exit. Just before the service station there is a sinlge dirt track (signposted Calblanque Regional Park). Follow this track until you get to the information centre. Here the road splits in two. Take the right hand one (signposted Playa Negrete). From here keep going until you get to a small car park with shelters to park under. Drive past here and follow the track to the right. Keep going as far as you can and park your car here.
Here, you can either take the wooden walkway down to the beach or cut over the rocks. Playa Negrete is on the right (as you face the sea).
The large sandy beach gently slopes into the sea. The beach attracts a mixture of textiles and naturists and is very family orientated. It was lovely to see groups of people of all ages coming down to the beach to spend the evening. There are some rocks and coves to explore so there are some snorkeling opportunities. There are smaller beaches further to the right but we decided to stay on Playa Negrete.
We would definitely recommend this beach to anyone in this part of the country.
If any of you have visited this beach which would love to hear from you. Also, if any of you have any nudist friendly accommodation ideas in the La Manga area we love to here from you!
