Free autumn activities and sports return to Cabo Roig beach

ORIHUELA COSTA TOWN HALL has approved the return of “The Winter Beach” for the autumn. The popular program of beach activities returns to Cabo Roig beach for the sixth bi-annual edition of the sponsored sporting activities, with organised events taking place on the beach each Saturday and Sunday.

The Winter Beach program was initially launched in 2017 in response to local demand for water sports and social leisure activities throughout the year, at the selected location of Cabo Roig´s idyllic La Caleta beach.

The beach provides the ideal location, meeting the stringent requirements for a family-friendly environment, with safe and clean Mediterranean waters, accessibility for all, the service of a beach bar year-round, and an extensive cove-shaped open beachfront comprised of golden sands.

The group sporting calendar was suspended last year due to the pandemic but returned in the springtine, and the town hall has confirmed a calendar of activities that start now and take place every weekend until the start of the Christmas period.

Previous iterations of The Winter Beach included group aerobic activities such as yoga, body balance, Aquagym, and Zumba, alongside organised workshops and games for children that aimed to raise awareness and educate in the conservation, respect and protection of the environment.

The Winter Beach, Cabo roig beach, autumn 2021

Water sports activities on Cabo Roig beach throughout the autumn

Water sports on offer included paddleboarding, canoeing, snorkelling, and diving for beginners, but public health restrictions in force this past spring, limited the activities on offer.

However, with the gradual easing of public safety measures and the lifting of limitations on groups of people, “The Winter Beach” program for this year is back to full strength, with group activities returning to the schedule – whilst maintaining safe spaces between participants.

Nonetheless, the council have laid on complimentary paddle boarding and canoeing, in addition to group pilates sessions and yoga on the beach at La Caleta each weekend.

The Town Hall is also offering free surfing classes from La Zenia´s Cala Cerrada beach on Saturday 23rd October and Saturday 30th October, with the 90-minute classes starting at 10:00.

The beach is naturally adapted to offer the conditions surfers require, and Cala Cerrada is the only beach on Orihuela Costa officially certified for surfing.

    • Hi Pat, I don´t know I´m afraid. There are planned activities for younger children, but please check with the organisers on the day.

    • Hi Debbie, I´m afraid it´s just the two dates for this season. We´re hoping that the Winter Beach programme will return for 2022, but for now, there are no further surfing lessons scheduled for the 2021 year.

  1. Would love to paddle board over around the week of the 6th March. Bought a place in los Balcones last October back and forward most months.
