What is La Azohia area like?
If you are looking for a holiday in a part of Spain that has not been spoiled, where you can totally relax, and where the Spanish choose to holiday, then look no further. La Azohia Cove is that place. This is really an area of outstanding natural beauty with lots to explore.
When heading South from the great stretches of beach around the Mar Menor lagoon, the coastline becomes increasingly mountainous with just occasional isolated coves. Once south of Cartagena the scenery becomes even more stunning. Half way between Cartagena & the bustling resort of Puerto Mazarron, there is a turning off the main road to the beautiful fishing village of La Azohia Cove. The mountains finally recede behind a promontory called Cabo Tinoso, giving way again to vast stretches of beach which go all the way to Puerto Mazarron & beyond. The village is in a truly beautiful location, still closely bound by a backdrop of dramatic rugged scenery, which not only protects it from easterly winds but, perhaps more importantly, from further development.
La Azohia Cove is a beautiful cove with a palm lined new promenade which stretches for approximately two miles, allowing a leisurely stroll on the flat. The cove is sheltered by mountains and the beach shelves gently into the crystal clear sea, which is warm all year round. Much prized by the Spanish the sea here is considered amongst the cleanest in Spain & has been granted blue flag status for many years. The deeper waters at Cabo Tinoso are known by divers far & wide for their colourful sea beds.
This little Spanish fishing village has a small pier from which you can watch the fishing boats delivering their daily catch. Further out to sea, you can see the huge nets and cages where tuna are farmed. Anyone who enjoys fishing from the sea shore will be in their element. Locals can be seen every day fishing off the beach with their rods.
There are a few bars and restaurants in La Azohia Cove serving local dishes and produce, a bodega, mini-market and pharmacy. The resort also boasts four diving schools and canoes, quad bikes, and bicycles can be hired locally.
A five minute drive will take you to the little resort of Isla Plana where there are more restaurants, bars, shops and a bank.
Ten minutes away will find you in the bustling port of Mazarron. Shops, pavements cafes, and bars are abundant here, an ideal place for young and old alike. The tree lined promenade is a favourite place for families to take an evening stroll, and watch the sun go down.
Further afield, approximately 30 minutes drive, is the famous port of Cartegena. Here you will see enormous cruise ships docking on a daily basis to enjoy the rich history of the port. The area has wonderful architecture and very classy shops, many vibrant squares, and well worth exploring.
Inland there are many places to visit, including the holy city of Caravaca de la Cruz. Travelling through orange, lemon, and olive groves, you will discover many jewels off the beaten track.
