Playa de Negrete
The final beach we went to was a trip back to Playa de Negrete in the Calblanque Regional Park (see post 3 May 2010).
However, instead of staying on the main Playa de Negrete beach, we headed over the headland to the smalled coves on the other side. I’m not sure what they are called hence I’ve titled this beach review – Playa de Negrete.
Follow directions as stated in previous post of this beach. To get to the smaller coves head right as you face the beach and walk along Playa de Negrete. There is a very small cove (about 5 metres wide) at the foot of the headland. Walk past here up and over the headland. At the top of the headland you’ll see the coves in front of you. Take when walking over the headland – there are some paths but be careful where you place your foot as some of the rocks are loose. We suggest you spend the day on the second beach you get to.
Unlike Playa de Negrete, this beach was 100% naked, with a surprising mixture of younger couples. The beach is made up of soft sand and calm water.
The first picture shows the headland that you need to walk over. The second shows the beach to head for (as seen from the top of the headland).
The beach was gorgeous and so would definitely recommend it.
However, if you decide to come here, stay clear from the cove to the right of this beach.
I decided to go off snorkeling around the rocks and down past the adjacent cove. It was here that I saw two men having sex and then got wanked at by a lone male as I made my way back. I would therefore warn people to stay away from this section. Honestly, what is it with some people!
If any of you have been to this beach we would love to here from you. Also if any of you have stayed in any nudist friendly properties in this area we’d love to here about it
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!
