Get to know the area of Águilas
Águilas is a charming port city, which was originally established by the Romans for fishing. To this day, it is still exporting produce from the rich agricultural fields that spread over the Murcia region.
Águilas is built on the landward side of a small peninsula, between two bays—the Puerto Poniente, a good harbor, on the south-west, and the Puerto Levante, which is somewhat dangerous to shipping in rough weather, on the north-east.
Águilas has numerous beaches, including Cala de la Cueva de las Palomas, Cala de la Herradura, Playa Amarilla, Playa de Calabardina, Playa de Calacerrada, Playa de Cope, Playa de la Cañada del Negro, Playa de la Casica Verde, Playa de la Cola, Playa de la Colonia, Playa de la Galera, Playa de la Higuerica, Playa de la Rambla Elena, Playa de las Pulgas, Playa de los Cocedores, Playa de Poniente, Playa del Arroz and Playa del Barranco de la Mar.
The area of Águilas is one of the best places on the Mediterranean to scuba dive thanks to its rocky shores and seabed. The hot spots for this activity can be found around Cape Cope and the Fraile Islands.
