The Murcia region
The Murcia Region is a privileged land, a perfect example of quality of life in the Mediterranean. Its warm, mild temperatures (with an annual average of 21 C) and low rainfall make it an oasis of well-being in any season.?
The weather endows Murcia with a distinct flavour, making it a region full of life and colour, where springtime seems eternal.?A land where you and your family will be able to enjoy over 300 days of sunshine a year. Murcia's abundant clear and sunny days give the Region a highly distinctive, spectacular and warm Mediterranean light.
The Murcia Region, a rendezvous between two seas. Outstanding beaches of soft sand, clean water and dazzling sunsets. Known as the "Warm Coast", the Murcia Region shoreline runs just over 250 km and is shared by two seas: the Minor Sea (Mar Menor) and the Mediterranean. The landscape is peppered with breathtaking cliffs, heavenly secluded beaches of endless white sand, lively seaports and natural coves of crystal-clear waters.
Many of these areas are part of the Regions network of Protected Natural Lands. A noteworthy geographical feature is La Manga, a strip of coastline that encloses and separates the 170 km2 Minor Sea lagoon from the Mediterranean, connected only by channels or gorges.
The Minor Seas warm waters have always been renowned for their health benefits.?Areas of ecological interest are also found, such as the San Pedro del Pinatar salt flats and the Calblanque Natural Park. Reservoirs, rivers and two natural parks make the Murcia Region a clean and highly appealing area for tourism.
The inland areas of the Murcia Region offer a very rich heritage of natural landscapes and reserves. Dreamlike places that can be enjoyed by both those seeking peace and fresh air, as well as others who wish to supplement an intensive, active tourism offering with the respite of recreational areas.
Those looking to enjoy nature will find an activity that best matches their tastes: hiking trails, hill-climbing, on horseback or by foot. We'd like to recommend two not-to-be-missed alternatives. They are the Sierra Espuna and El Valle Natural Parks, which all can enjoy, whether seeking activities or relaxation.
