The Murcia region
With an average of 320 days of sunshine a year and miles of stunning Mediterranean coastline, visiting the golden, sandy beaches of the Costa Calida (warm coast) is a must. Mar Menor is about 15/20 minutes drive from the apartment. This is a large sea water lagoon, reputed to be one of the cleanest, safest and warmest waters in the Med. A little further afield are Torrevieja and Benidorm which are more commecialised, and for some, maybe more exciting.
Hacienda Riquelme Golf Resort has been designed by top professionals and is one of the nine courses that form the Jack Nicklaus Trail. It is an 18 hole 72 par course. Staying at one resort means you can have access to play on any of the other courses, all within a short drive, or, alternatively, you can take the FREE SHUTTLE BUS to any of the participating resorts. Tee off times can be arranged on your behalf prior to arrival. Next door to Hacienda Riquelme is another golf resort designed by Save Balesteros, called Peraleja. Plenty of opportunities, therefore, to put your golfing skills to the test!
