THE VENUE OF THE TRAINING COURSE
PUNTAS DE CALNEGRE:
Cabo Cope and Puntas de Calnegre is a protected area that lies between the towns of Lorca and Águilas in the Region of Murcia, Spain. It was declared a Natural Park by the legislation of the Autonomous Community of Murcia.
One of its features is a series of cliffs and coves making a unique scenery along 17 km of pristine coastline along the Bay of Mazarrón.
In this wonderful place, just 50m from the beach there is "Residencia de Formación Medio Ambiental de Calnegre", the old Headquarters of the Guardia Civil completely renovated for its suitability as a cozy hostel just 1 minute to the beach. The building consists of two parts - the main one which, after its renovation, is used a hostel and an extension to the main building which is apartments' area. The building is constructed in an "L" shape and has an outdoor area (public square). The hostel has also got a terrace and sea views.
The participants will be accommodated in quadruple rooms with shared bathrooms. The hostels provides linens but NO TOWELS so don't forget to take them! There is a Wi-Fi connection in the hostel, however, it doesn’t work very well. The weather in August is usually hot (or very hot :-)) and days are sunny so we also advise you to take the sun glasses, sun cream and a hat!
Puntas de Calnegre is a village, however, there are a few bars here and a shop. There is no public transport to this place and the only possibility to reach it is either by car or taxi.
