Caution: Several marine farm areas lie offshore between Cabo de Oropesa and Peniscola.

From the Cape of Oropesa and for ten miles, the coast is low and marshy. She is overwhelmed by rocky shoals that make it unhealthy to 0.2 MN.

Cabo de Oropesa, situé à 9 MN au NE de El Grao, est une terminaison basse de Los Colls, une chaîne de montagnes avec trois pics remarquables.

Un phare sur une tour avec une maison, de 13 m de haut, s'élève sur ​​le cap. Une ancienne tour de guet se trouve à proximité du phare.

Attention: Plusieurs fermes marines se trouvent au large entre Cabo de Oropesa et Peniscola.

A partir du cap de Oropesa et pendant une dizaine de milles, la côte est basse et marécageuse. Elle est débordée par des hauts-fonds rocheux qui la rendent malsaine jusqu'à 0,2 MN.
