This eroded sandstone formations has many names like “Gredas de Bolnuevo” and also “Ciudad Encantada” besides the official “Erosiones de Bolnuevo” and sits at the end of the 1600 meters long Playa de Bolnuevo (Bolnuevo Beach) in Bolnuevo, Murcia, Spain. The beach reaches all the way to the neighbor village of Puerto de Mazarrón to the east.
The sandstone formation has been eroded by water and wind for thousands of years and in the clay there is an abundance of micro fossils dating back to the Pliocene period 4.5 million years ago.

One thought on “Erosiones de Bolnuevo, Bolnuevo – Spain”
Hi there, just wanted to let you know that we had a great holiday at Marina de Bolnuevo in June of this year. We flew into San Javier and hired a car from the airport for the short drive to Bolnuevo. The beaches are fantastic, most of them awarded the Blue Flag. The cafes were great, with paella on the beach a delight and managed a trip to the nudist beach there. Very liberating. We also visited the Big Guns, The Roman Mines and the Sand sculptures. Will be returning there again next year. Thanks for reading Tony.
