The Costa Calida region
Los Alcazares is in the Murcia region in south-eastern Spain, which is also called the Costa Calida. The town lies on the western shore of the Mar Menor, Europe's largest saltwater lake. This region has on average 320 days of sun per year.
All along the Mar Menor you can find restaurants serving meals, drinks and tapas as well as providing fantastic entertainment in the summer evenings. The warmer water of the Mar Menor is ideal for swimmers and watersports enthusiasts providing wind sufing and clear water. The Mar Menor is renowned for its health-giving properties as it is rich in minerals and the town has thermal baths which were built in Roman times.
There is a good motorway network and airport less than 5km away, with flights to and from many UK airports.
There are sports and other activities available all year. There are more than eight golf courses a short drive from the town. In October there is a week-long outdoor party with live music and shows and spectacular firework displays. In Los Alcazares the last three days in March there is a medieval market with bands, amusements and stalls to pass the evenings away. The last two weeks in August, there is a celebration of La Huerta with firework displays and parade creating a carnival atmosphere.
Los Alcázares (pronounced "al cath er as") is situated at the very centre of the Mar Menor's west coastline. Originally a seafaring village, Los Alcázares was named after the palaces that were built by the Arabs. Today, its population of more than 6,000 and its many visitors share the wonderful climate, its promenade, long sandy beaches and marina not only during the summer, but the whole year round. The waters of the Mar Menor are so relaxing at any time of year, it provides long stretch of clean sandy beaches, (they are cleaned every day), the safe calm water provides an excellent playground for children of all ages.
There are plenty of beach bars, restaurants of all types in the town, from traditional Spanish tapas to European and Asian, Chinese restaurants and Wok buffets abound, the Spanish love Chinese food.
The Mar Menor is the largest salt-water lagoon in Europe, which is safe for all forms of water sport; it is non-tidal, crystal clear, and shallow never reaching more than 7 metres in depth and with average water temperature of 23 degrees. So if you are taking a sailing boat out, you do have to be careful of the sea floor. Even experienced sailors have been caught out. The area boasts up to 320 days of sunshine each year, over 3000 hours. It certainly beats the “grey” days of the UK. The temperature in the area averages 22 degrees rising to 29 degrees through June, July, August and September. The area is well known for Levante wind, which provides a cooling breeze at the heat of the day.
With all this glorious sunshine and warm water, the area is understandably known for a wide range of water sports, swimming, windsurfing, water skiing, jet skiing yachting and scuba diving. Boats, pedallos, jet skis are all available for hire. There is a Kite school on the beach of Los Alcazares, at the Los Narejos end, or northern area, which you can hire or have some training, they hold competitions at various times of the year.
Alternatively if you just want to sunbath there are over 73km of coastline featuring many beautiful, clean, sandy beaches. Those are in superb condition and receive “Blue Flags” all the time. Away from the water, interests such as golf in one of the 9 (could be more by the time you read this) championship golf courses that are all within 15 minutes drive, Roda Golf, La Serena, Mar Menor Gold and the 3 world-class 18 hole courses at the La Manga club, also with horse riding, cycling, and tennis. Or if you like walking you can visit the local towns and markets, we have a few, there is a local market on every day of the week, including Saturday and Sunday, selling fresh local produce direct from the farmers and all those kick-knacks you love to buy and take home, or take a bus ride to the historic city of Cartagena or Murcia.
Also if you prefer to relax and take advantage of the water healing abilities, the area is known for its spa water beauty treatments. Due to their chemical qualities, the waters from the Mar Menor are renowned for having many medicinal properties. The high concentration of salts and iodines, the stillness of the water as well as being shallow, and of course its exceptional temperature in winter as well as in the summer, all blend together to form a unique combination transforming these waters into the best treatment against certain skin disorders and other ailments.
Lo Pogan area is famed for the healing properties of its “mud”; many swear that it has significantly helped their rheumatoid and arthritic conditions. Apart from being the largest open-air spa, the Mar Menor is thought to be one of the best places to organise regattas and to enjoy the other numerous water sports throughout the year. There are several boat clubs along the coastline and many marinas where you can hire or bring your own boat, yacht, or other sailing craft.
