About Murcia

Located in the southeast of Spain, the Region of Murcia is characterized by mild temperatures and long hours of day light. Here, just as in a small continent of its own, a variety of cultural activities and diverse flora and fauna offer endless possibilities to visitors. Beautiful beaches, rural areas, historical cities, rich traditions, enchanting folklore and spirited culture mix together to form a dynamic and attractive tourist environment.

Two seas meet on one coastline - the Mar Menor and the Mediterranean - impressive cliffs, heavenly beaches of endless white sand, lively ports and wild coves with crystal clear water, more than 3,000 hours of sun per year and mild temperatures, even in winter, with a yearly average of more than 18ºC. This is the Costa Cálida, the ideal place to spend some relaxing days both in winter and summer.

From the fishing town of Aguilas to the white dunes of the beach of El Mojon in San Pedro del Pinatar, stretch kilometer after kilometer of beaches and deserted coves awaiting the arrival of bathers, sailors, divers and fishermen. In addition, there are delightful picturesque small villages, like La Azohia or Cabo de Palos that invite passers-by to linger for a few days; ports like the one in Mazarron where you can spend a lively evening and enjoy its magnificent gastronomy after a day on the beach; heavenly areas of natural beauty, unique in the whole Mediterranean area, at the beaches of Calblanque and Calnegre... and one of the most highly considered tourist complexes in the Mediterranean: La Manga del Mar Menor, a paradise between two seas with infinite beaches, sandy sea beds and crystal clear waters, endowed with an excellent hotel infrastructure.

Furthermore, fans of water sports will find one of the best places in the world for practicing sailing, canoeing, swimming, water-skiing, jet-skiing, flysurfing, windsurfing, catamaranning, and every other type of water sport activity in numerous clubs, ports and sailing schools. The Nautical Resort on the Mar Menor and similar consortiums in Mazarron and Aguilas offer the chance to hire out equipment, book sailing courses and reserve accommodation at interesting rates.
