Beach of the Dead of Cabo de Gata

Beach of the Dead

This beach is one of those that occupy the first positions of the popularity lists, of the beaches of the Spanish coast.
It has a length of about 1,200 meters.
It is on the outskirts of the Almeria municipality of Carboneras. Specifically, it is situated between Carboneras Y Bitter water. It is protected by the hills that surround it.

 

Highlights of this beach:

YOUR NAME

It is called like that, because due to the currents that prevail in the area, the bodies of the nearby SHIPWRECKS, used to appear here. Not because of the number of deceased bathers (which there are also), as many might believe. Although always, as on any beach, you have to be cautious, very cautious. And here very especially if the swell and the wind do not accompany you.

THE ACCESS

There is a small car park in the upper part, next to the road, with a shed and some containers. When you get there, about three hundred meters there is a viewpoint.

If you decide to go down to the same beach, it means doing little more than ten minutes of hiking (wearing suitable footwear will help), along a path with steep sections and stony down the slope.

The Carboneras City Council has made a staircase, with the intention of facilitating access, with this action we do not agree, we believe that the main thing is to keep the Cabo de Gata Natural Park in the state in which it is and whether to control the overcrowding of their beaches.

THE SHAPE

: seen from the viewpoint you can see its rectilinear silhouette.

THE CORTED PEÑON

The great rock, at the bottom, at the foot of the sea, sculpted by the winds and the waves.

SAND AND WATER

It is not sand, it is very fine gravel, very small pebbles. The water is crystal clear.

 NOT URBANIZED

: We are at the northern limit of the Cabo de Gata - Níjar Natural Park. That is, a protected, virgin area (although you can see the Port of Carboneras on one side), which implies that there is no promenade, beach bars, showers,… .etc ..

Take care of the beaches, leave them better than they were.
