Cabo Roig Spain
Cabo Roig, an interesting guide to the Orihuela Costa resort of Cabo Roig.
The Orihuela Costa Resort of Cabo Roig
Cabo Roig Spain: Attractive palm-lined streets, golden, sandy beaches, bustling bars and restaurants, friendly, welcoming people, and a warm sunny climate, these are just a few of the high points of the popular Orihuela Costa, Costa Blanca resort of Cabo Roig, a highly desirable destination that attracts thousands of holidaymakers each and every year. Especially busy between June and September, Cabo Roig is just as attractive to Spanish tourists as it is to UK and International visitors.
Originally developing around its ancient watchtower, which still stands today, beside the modern marina, Cabo Roig was a target for pirate incursions in centuries long past, modern invasions of tourists are somewhat more friendly. The marina itself is highly popular and a sought after mooring spot for this well sailed coastline.
Boasting two wonderful sandy beaches (Cala Capitan and Cala Caleta) it is no surprise that this is such a desirable location. Both beaches have “Blue Flag” status and both have excellent little beach bars, where you can get a cooling drink, an ice cream or a much needed snack.
Also within walking distance of Cabo Roig are the beaches of La Zenia, Playa Flamenca and Campoamor, a short drive gets you to Punta Prima Beach, Mil Palmeras Beach and also the beaches of the Mar Menor (our favourite is Lo Pagan).
Make sure you don’t miss the opportunity to stroll long the seafront cliff walk between Cabo Roig marina and La Zenia beach, a very pleasant way to spend an hour or so. Early evening is the best time for this excursion, after the heat of the day has subsided and before darkness sets in.
The weather in Cabo Roig Spain is of course sunny and warm particularly between May and September, these are also the months of least rainfall and the most popular months to visit. When checking on Cabo Roig's current weather, you can look at either the weather in Alicante or the weather in Murcia, both should give you a pretty good idea of the latest conditions.
Along the renowned Cabo Roig "strip" you will find such popular bars as the Bushwacka, Smiling Jacks, the Bog Road, the Trinity, Flannigans, the Queen Victoria, Listers, Bar Med and Bar Liquid, there is also plenty of choice when it comes to eating, with most international cuisines catered for. Whether you fancy a traditional Spanish tapas dish, a cheap Chinese meal, a Mexican fajita, a burger or simply an English style roast dinner, you will find just what you are looking for in Cabo Roig Spain.
In the unlikely event that you get bored with Cabo Roig itself, there are lots of other places you can visit, most will require that you hire a car.

The town of Torrevieja is just 10 minutes away and here you can go shopping, visit the water park, Aquopolis, go to the cinema or play tenpin bowling.
