Cabo Cope – Puntas de Calnegre Regional Park

Straddling the districts of Lorca and Águilas, the Cabo Cope – Puntas de Calnegre Regional Park is an area of exceptionally beautiful countryside covering some 3,000 hectares and 17km of coast, along which you can enjoy wonderful unspoilt coves and wild natural beaches such as those at Calablanca and Baño de las Mujeres. In the Cope Bay area, you should visit the recently restored Torre de Cope, one of the many defensive towers built to fend off incursions by Berber pirates. The natural park is also an ideal place for keen fishermen and for walkers, who can climb to the peak of Calnegre or follow the well-marked trail that leads around the rocky outcrop known as the Peñón de Cope. The rocky seabed around the Peñón offers excellent diving.
