This part of the Costa Blanca benefits from many glorious beaches of fine sand and warm water such as La Marina and Guardamar, and the area also has a number of small and quiet bays with transparent water such as Campoamor and Cabo Roig. Most beaches offer facilities such as bars, restaurants, children's climbing frames and volleyball nets; with the vast majority of beaches having been awarded "blue flag" status, which reflects their superb quality. The climate and the excellent beaches provide a variety of water sports from wind surfing, surfing, water ski-ing, scuba diving etc. Paragliding is also very popular with a couple of paragliding centres located to the north of Torrevieja at Santa Pola.
