About the area
Chiringuito Azul is located in an unique place in the Santa Pola cape called Bancal de la Arena
A natural environment of relevance because of its interesting vegetation, its unique coast fossil reef and its natural beach of crystalline waters. Indeed, Bancal de la Arena has been awarded with the L.I.C recognition (Lugar de Interes Comunitario – Place of Local Interest). With spectacular views of the mountain and the lighthouse, as well as of the sea side and the Tabarca island, Bancal de la Arena is the ideal place to do sports such as paragliding, hiking, climbing or just to enjoy a tranquil walk.
Not far away, you can also visit “CIMAR”, one of the only three sea life research centres of Spain, located in an old castle that used to serve as the surveillance headquarters of the Guardia Civil police in the early years of the 20th century.
