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

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.

The view is stunning, especially if you go here at sunrise or sunset with the Lighthouse bathing in warm colors. If you are at La Manga, or close to it, you should take a look at this place!

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.
