Bit of a hike up the drive or steps, but lovely views over La Manga. Plenty parking spaces, even motorhome pitches up.

If you're in the area visit the lighthouse. Get out of your car and walk around it and the surrounding bays. Beautiful views of the Mediterranean and the Menor. You can scuba dive around the lighthouse with a local club

Had a wonderful sunday here. Planned to go to the sunday market in Cabo de Palo, but ended up walking along the shore seeing the sights instead. Wonderful place.

We loved the Faro de Cabo de Palos. My husband did some diving there and he said it was breathtaking. The lighthouse is beautiful and it’s worth the climb, you can see all the beaches around it. Really spectacular.

I personally was quite disappointed with the lighthouse, but is worth the visit. Nice view of La Manga and from what was explained obviously one of the best places to dive in Spain. The lighthouse itself isn't opened for visitors, so it doesn't look much...More

I would bring them as we have had some small jelly fish and also it stops the odd stone doing for your feet. You can buy them in the silly shops here for very little money.
