When we were last over in Spain at the house, we headed down to one of our favourite spots on the Costa Blanca South. It's always somewhere we love to take friends and family as well.
Cabo Roig Marina is tucked away behind the busy N332. Once you turn off the main road you drive through the palm tree lined streets passing some absolutely gorgeous houses, which are definitely on the 'when we win the lottery' list!
I love the drive to Cabo Roig Marina. The streets are quiet and calm. The palm trees give you a real tropical holiday kinda vibe. Then when you take the turning to the marina down a steep hill the view is amazing.
It's quite a small marina, but a lovely display of boats and a couple of restaurants too.
The first restaurant is The Clipper, which we've been too a few times now (it was closed on that particular day though, I'm guessing as it's the low season).
Then further round the marina there's a much larger restaurant/bar with outside seating, La Bahia.
Such a fantastic suntrap even in January. We took a front row seat overlooking the sea and the beach over to the right. The beach had quite a few people on it catching their winter sun and we even spotted a couple of
crazy brave guys taking a dip in the sea!
We sipped on our diet cokes, lapped up the sun on our faces while watching the clear blue waters of the sea.
