About Costa Calida Region
Sun to fill you with enthusiasm
A region blessed with year-round sunshine, so you can make the most of its two seas: the Mediterranean and the Mar Menor. The perfect place for rest and relaxation, lying on the beach or swimming in the crystal clear waters. Mile upon mile of coastline punctuated by white sandy beaches, unspoilt coves, hidden depths, wild cliffs, lively ports and fishing villages. Places where the sea is a treat for all the senses. With its mild climate, The Costa Calida or Warm coast is ideal for enjoying an endless variety of water sports virtually all year round. Come and discover the pleasures of the sea, ply the waves powered by the wind, dive the depths amid meadows of poseidonia. La Manga and the Mar Menor, a fortuitous accident of nature with tranquil waters: The Mazarron bay, a privileged area where the sea breeze whispers amongst forests of rock: Aguilas, with its incredible variety of contrasting landscapes on the shores of the Mediterranean.
Energy for Adventure
A region that will fill you with energy. Energy to discover the towns, villages and landscapes of its interior; energy to relish its typical cuisine; energy to marvel at its traditional crafts. Exceptional both for their beauty and for their environmental interest, its landscapes are a vast tapestry of contrasts: ochre-coloured fields of crops bordered by verdant wooded hillsides and rugged mountain ranges. Places with charm of their own, where you can enjoy all manner of outdoor activities: walking the endless trails, climbing precipitous rock faces, exploring hidden depths, soaring aloft in the blue sky. Immerse yourself in the vineyards of the north-east, the flora and fauna of the Sierra Espuna, the age-old histories of the north-west or the villages of Ricote Valley.
Light to lead you on a trail of discovery
A region that will take you on a journey of discovery, revealing the legacy of a past that is present at every turn. Though its archaeological sites, its majestic monuments, the wealth of its museums and its deep-rooted traditions you can discover what makes Murcia and how it has been crafted by the forge of time. An extraordinary journey though history in a land of frontiers. Four cities, each brimming with its own unique cultural legacy: Lorca Workshop of time, an entertaining way to discover the Middle Ages; Cartagena Port of Cultures, a setting in which to live the Punic Wars between Romans and Carthaginians; the Holy City of Caravaca de la Cruz, where legend, pilgrimage and devotion become one; and Murcia, Cultural Crossroads, where a profusion of artistic styles comes together at the crossroads between past and present.
Warmth for relaxation
A region whose thermal waters will help you relax, unwind, escape from day-to-day routine and rediscover your well-being. In the region of Murcia, health-giving waters bubble up in thermal springs from deep below the earth's surface and the saltiness of the sea is transformed into a source of well-being. Take advantage of the pampering and treatments offered by the thermal baths at Archena and Leana, as well as by the spas and thalassotherapy centres around the Mar Menor, whose mud baths, hydrotherapy treatments and showers are just the remedy for stress, rheumatic bones and dermatological complaints. Havens of tranquillity in a world of discord.
