From El Portús to Isla Plana

The Cartagena-Mazarrón road takes you to El Portús, a small, tranquil tourist town with nudist camping facilities.

From El Portús, it is possible to make an excursion through a stretch of steep craggy coast that leads to secluded coves. The trail is marked by yellow and white bars that start at the beach and continue some 12 kilometers (71/2 miles). From this trail, it is also possible to begin the climb to Sierra de la Muela, which affords excellent views of the coastline and the areas of Cabo Tiñoso with some of the most spectacular underwater scenery on the coast of Murcia, and steep cliffs, along with a wide variety of fauna and flora.

In the direction of La Azohía, a turnoff to the left leads to Campillo de Adentro where you can reach the military battery of Castillitos by taking a military road, now open to the public.

The battery, abandoned several years ago, preserves among other things, two of the largest coastal canons in the country. The views are also impressive. Descending a few kilometers in the direction of Mazarrón, you encounter La Azohía, a fishing village where tuna is still captured using an ancient fishing method.

There is also a pristine beach lined with palm trees. Upon leaving the town, a side road branching off to the left leads to Isla Plana, a peaceful vacation spot with clear waters and rocky beaches.
