Is Thursday, March 19, 2009 and we headed to Bolnuevo, from where we climbed along the coast by Mazarron, Cartagena and Cabo de Palos, before returning to Murcia, to a mini-tank to something that remained pending, the cathedral.
Bolnuevo It was formerly a fishing village. Today it stands out especially for its beautiful coves (many of nudists) and its great beach that looks like in summer it goes up.
Many times, in the stories of other countries, we usually comment that it is not necessary to leave Spain to find beautiful places. This is the case of the bay behind the hill of Balnuevo. At times it reminded us a lot of the famous Bay of Pigs (see DAY 5 of CUBA -Isaac and Juve-). Of course the water does not disregard the comparison.
But Bolnuevo is especially famous for rocky erosions called "Las Gredas" or "The Enchanted City". A huge mushroom-shaped rocks that the air, water and weather have eroded until these geological formations appear on the other side of the road that leaves the beach opposite.
!! The beach !! Will we have to take advantage of the morning on the first beach day of 2009, right? We consider the beach 2009 inaugurated !!
There we spent the morning until the hungry began to tighten. The beach is hungry, we all know them. We headed to Puerto de Mazarrón and there, on a terrace we had a Pizza and a steak at Roquefort (€ 33.80) before heading to where we would stay.
One of the pleasant surprises of this getaway was our accommodation, which we had barely seen in a few hours on the internet the previous week. He La Cumbre hotel It met much more than our expectations in an accommodation that we were only looking for a bed to sleep and not to carry a pocket that has a long journey ahead in just 15 days.
There we left our mini-bags and went down to the famous Mazarron Harbor. Taking a walk to the "solete" makes us think how it should be put in summer. In part it has an air to the well-known Torrevieja. Walking, we arrive at one of the most original viewpoints we have ever seen, the "Viewpoint of the Cabezo Pico de Aguila"
This viewpoint is a huge limestone rock mass from where you can see the coast of Mazarrón. In addition, the colors and contrasts before sunset make them have a good photo. There also resides an Archaeological Site of S.II a.C. which is currently in the process of excavation.
Returning on our steps, stopping for a drink (€ 3) we arrive at Port Properly said. There we finish the rest of the afternoon, peck (€ 5.50), have dinner (€ 10.50) and finally return to the La Cumbre hotel Since tomorrow we have a visit in which we had special enthusiasm when coming to Murcia: Cartagena.
