Latest News for Cabo Roig
Almost everyone will be happy to know that the seafront promenade between Cabo Roig beach and Dehesa de Campoamor is now fully open after a struggle of some 14 years or more with the residents of Residencial Bellavista who unlawfully blocked the coastal path in a selfish attempt to conserve their own privacy to the detriment of every other resident of and visitor to the area. Everyone is now free to walk along the coastal pathway and cliff walk, so should you wish, you could now walk from Campoamor to Torrevieja without having to leave the seafront.

What's in a Name? - Here are a few common and I hasten to add incorrect spellings of the name of this popular resort: Capo Roig, Cabo Riog, Caboroig (one word), Caba Roig, Coba Roig, Cabo Raig, Cap Roig, сфищ кщшп (Russian?), Caba Riog and many variations of these.
The exact meaning of Cabo Roig, would seem to be "Red Cape", the word Cabo means "Cape" and Roig means "Red" in the Catalan language (though not in Castillian Spanish), and is also a personal name, ie former Spanish racing driver Alex Soler-Roig. The cliffs around Cala Caleta and the marina are certainly red in colour especially when viewed in the evening sun, so this would make sense (see picture on the right).
