Calblanque - a beautiful unspoilt regional park is one of the few area of the Murcian coastline that still retains its stunning natural beauty with arid mountains, dunes, long sandy beaches and is home to interesting vegetation and birds e.g. Flamingo, Heron & Stork. We've spent truly beautiful days over the years exploring this area and would highly recommend it, whether you are a nature lover looking for something special or a sun worshiper wanting to get away from the crowds.
Murcia is a university city and in its old winding streets or modern shopping areas are a wealth of lively bars, good shopping and restaurants that are vibrant with life. It is described as one of the most beautiful cities in Spain. There is a great deal of Moorish influence in the city, not least its walls. (30 minutes drive)
Just over 2 and a half hours drive away is the third largest city in Spain, Valencia. This is a stunning city to visit, with an historic old town and a fantastic new City of Arts and Culture - see some of our photos of our recent trip there. The aquarium is almost worth the trip itself, with stunning double height tanks and unusual exhibits.
There are numerous other places of interest to visit ; a folder in the apartment can point you in allsorts of directions dependent on your interests. Try

It has a long tree lined promenade alongside the long stretch of beach next to the Mar Menor, with lots of beach cafes. This is a popular resort with the Spanish themselves and in summer months the promenade is a lively family attraction after a day on the beach. Whilst there are plenty of restaurants and bars, there are few nightclubs in Los Alcazares.
Los Alcazares is situated on the Mar Menor, with fantastic water sports facilites available on the Mar Menor itself or along the nearby coastal areas. Superb diving, snorkelling, kayaking windsurfing and canoeing are all easily available on the Mar Menor and boat trips can be readily arranged locally. Other past times include horse riding, rock climbing and walking.
Roda Golf and Beach resort itself is a development built in the last ten years, based around a Dave Thomas designed 18 hole golf course. Our apartment is on the third phase of development, which may ultimately see a De Vere run luxury hotel and commercial centre.
The golf course is a PGA training centre and its driving range has up to the minute training aids and professional teaching staff for beginers and experienced golfers alike. There are currently lots of deals available for green fees, often including buggy hire, or an evening drink.
Other local courses include Villa Martin, La Manga, La Serena, La Finca and La Torre and many others to ensure that a varied golfing experience can be had in this fascinating area. Please email us for details of local deals. Our on site agents can arrange packages for trips out to the local courses.
The fantastic Roda club house is situated in the middle of the course and development, with stunning views from its first and second floor terraces and bars. A show kitchen serves the restaurant, where meals can be taken throughout the day and evening, making the club house a great place to socialise. The pro shop is also at the club house, where a round of golf can be arranged and golf supplies purchased. There are a number of local golf suppliers in the surrounding area as well. Deals including buggies or evening drink are often available.

This apartment is everything you will need for a great, relaxing holiday. Spacious enough to sleep 5 (if one doesn't mind the sofa bed) and with a swimming pool effectively in your back garden, it is scrupulously clean, well appointed and tastefully decorated. For those really blistering days the aircon works wonderfully well.
We have now stayed here twice as a family of five with three hungry teens and have found the local supermarkets to stock everything we needed to keep them happy. As well as being a short drive away (a car is recommended), they stock all the things us Brits normally eat but lots of stuff that's unfamiliar, if you are more adventurous!
The local restaurants are plentiful and varied; in the town itself all alfresco dining is the norm in a lively atmosphere of people and outdoor entertainment.
From the town the beaches are a short walk and are clean and spacious with plenty of bars and small restaurants.
All in all, we've had two great holidays here and would thoroughly recommend it.
