Superb Beach and a Fantastic salt water lagoon, ( The largest in Europe ) separated from the Med by a large sand bank. Well worth the trip.

Nice beaches, quiet, but was around Easter time and the weather wasn't perfect. We went to Calblanque beach, which is a wild beach surrounded by a natural park so you can take a walk too

This is a hidden treasure. It is a beautiful sandy beach with good facilities and very safe for swimming. It is suitable for all ages and definitely worth a bathe in the sea here.

Sorry but I am not familiar with that golf resort or area. You could try and contact the resort direct via the internet or google it and find out where it is near to.
