In between the two coastal towns of Isla Plana and La Azohia you can go to the Mountains of Cartagena via the ‘old road’.
An exit of this road will take you high up in the mountains where, on the coastal rocks, a huge fortress from the beginning of the 20th century is located.
For protection of the city of Cartagena huge cannons are located on the rocks.
Enjoy the spectacular views and imagine what it should have been like in the past when you wander through the old fortress.
When you arrive in the city after the mountain roads you will be amazed by the beautiful buildings which you will find there.
Cartagena was, in particular in the old days, an important seaport for Spain.
Of course you will also find lovely squares, wonderful restaurants and bars here.
When you go back to the resort from Cartagena it is also possible to take the recently opened highway.
Within 20 minutes you will get to Mazarron and the resort via this highway.
From the resort you can also make a visit to the sand sculptures of Bolnuevo.
In this coastal town (10 minutes from the resort) there also are some quiet beaches.
There are lots of beach sports possibilities as well as diners, bars and outdoor cafés.
