Cala de Enmedio is a beach of extraordinary beauty with very comfortable sand, fine, golden and without a single stone. It has a length of 150 meters, optimal conditions for bathing and a level of occupancy medium in August and very low the rest of the year. From the beach the views are fantastic being able to observe the town of Agua Amarga on the other side of the bay and, behind it, Mesa Roldán hill with its lighthouse and castle. Rocks from Cala de Enmedio Cabo de Gata On both sides of the beach there are fossilized dunes, which, like stone tongues that go into the sea, allow visitors to explore them, and to contemplate the crystal clear water among the stones. In these rocks, small pools where water accumulates that have been formed due to erosion.

This cove located in the heart of the Natural Park is a virgin beach, without any kind of service, or litter bins or cleaning service, so we must be respectful and keep the space clean. Any waste, garbage, paper, cigarette butt must come back with us and leave this space as we found it. Cala Enmedio appears in the 2017 Repsol Guide as one of the 10 most beautiful sites in Spain. Also the newspaper The New York Times in an article in his magazine referred to the beauty of this cove.

How to get to Cala de Enmedio

This beautiful cove is only accessible on foot or by boat. There are two different roads from Cala del Plomo and from Agua Amarga.

  • Cala del Plomo - Cala Enmedio Cove: About 200 meters from the parking lot of Cala del Plomo, on the right, we will find the remains of an old water wheel, there begins the narrow path to Enmedio. The route has a length of 1.7 kilometers, and since it does not have large slopes it is easily done in about 20 minutes. This road is the shortest and the flattest, but the Cala del Plomo is also isolated from any urban nucleus and we will need a car to get there. Here is the road to Cala del Plomo.

This road has the same length as the previous one, 1'7 kilometers, but if it has a slope, we must climb about 90 meters and then lower them when we reach the beach. It is not a very demanding path but we will not be comfortable making the descent with flip flops or footwear that does not fit our foot.
