An old-fashioned seaside backwater with not too many hotels and a jolly family feel - if you're from the UK, it's a place that might bring back memories of a 1950's holiday resort
in Devon. Maybe it's the lush vegetation - pines, palms and oleander - that gives Cupra Marittima its relaxed charm.
Its shortish sandy beach (2.5kms long), punctuated by old concrete breakwaters, complements an attractive small port. And it's rarely overcrowded. It also has an
interesting shell museum.
If you are looking to camp, the biggest sites are between here and Pedaso to the north.
