The Costa Calida region
Nestling at the bottom of the Costa Blanca, the Costa Calida is one of the least known and most unspoilt regions of Spain, guaranteed to give you a taste of "real Spain".
With over 315 days of sunshine every year it is little wonder that the Costa Calida means "warm coast" and the unspoilt inland waters of the Mar Menor, the largest natural lagoon in Europe, offer safe and warm water bathing all year round.
The area is well known for the La Manga Club resort, renowned for its Three championship Golf Courses, LTA Tennis Centre Training Ground and being the training ground of visiting football teams from Spain, the UK and the whole of Europe.
The area has much to offer. There are 12 further golf courses of an excellent standard in the region of Murcia, all within just a few minutes drive of this apartment. If a golfing holiday is your ideal then this is the perfect place for you. Once you have enjoyed the 5 Polaris World courses you can try Roda Golf and Beach which is only 15 mins drive from the villa, or La Serena again at Los Alcazares. La Serena is a tricky course and take lots of spare balls as there are 16 holes with water. The Club house is excellent and they do a very welcome lunch after golf at a good price.
Mosa Trajectum is only 15 mins up the road, this has 3 x 9 hole golf courses and so you can choose to play 18 holes or 27, plus there is a further Challenge Course. Finally Hacienda del Alamo, the furthest from the villa and ideal for the enthusiastic golfer. 18 holes of large open fairways, a truly excellent course, very well presented and maintained. Prices range for 55euros to 90euros for a Green Fee. (prices subject to change)
Murcia is more than just golf, it has a history that pre dates the Romans. If you are here in September then it is worth a visit to the Romanos y Catheginas festival. Every year in the third week of September the people of Cartagena reinact the Roman invasion, the battles, the marriages and the departures! This live history takes place every evening and all day Friday Saturday and Sunday there is a battle or a procession somewhere in the town. Then they pack up and go back to work for Monday morning. The costumes, the atmosphere, the noise it is really worthwhile seeing, especially bearing in mind that these are ordinary people from the towns and villages around Cartagena.
Murcia City is only 20 mins drive and steeped in history. Famous for its Moorish architecture and huge cathedral which exhibits an eclectic mix of ancient, old, georgian and modern architecture. The city has of course lots of wonderful shops and places to eat. Christmas time in Murcia is particularly special with the Christmas street lights and the palm trees decorated in fairy lights.
There is plenty of choice of beaches in Murcia along its 271km of coastline. From the villa the safe, shallow waters of the Mar Menor are the closest and easiest to find at the town of Los Alcazares. This is an excellent stretch of coastline, there are plenty of beach bars and cafes and the town centre with its excellent huge Tuesday market is a very short walk.
La Manga Strip ... the "sleeve" of land that runs from Cabo de Palos in the south to San Pedro in the north is 18km long and encloses the warm tranquil waters of the Mar Menor to the west and has the livelier colder Mediterranean to the east. The Strip is up to 1km wide in parts and in others is is merely 100m allowing only for the road to run through with a beach on either side. La Manga Strip is a town in its own right, albeit an long thin one! There are shopping centres, restaurants and bars set in plazas or squares. The marina at the Puerto Tomas Maestre is beautiful and houses some stunning boats and yachts that most of us can only dream of, but the restaurants are great and the atmosphere is wonderful.
Water sports ... well there could not be a better or safer place to learn to sail, jet ski or kite board. The area has a number of sailing schools with a wide range of boats and dinghies on which to learn to sail or to brush up your sailing skills. Diving is a popular sport and there are a number of different diving schools offering anything from the beginners course to night dives for the more experienced diver. The dive around Isla Grosa, for example, takes around 1 hour and takes your through the magnificent quartz caves.
Mar Menor Golf Resort
This new and exciting resort, constructed by Polaris World is situated barely 4kms from the warm waters of the Mar Menor, a 10 minute drive from San Javier, Murcia International airport and 60 minutes from Alicante airport.
The centre of Murcia, capital of the province, is 30 minutes away and the ancient Roman and historic port of Cartagena is even closer. The villa is found within a secure area surrounding a 18 hole golf course designed by Dave Thomas. A short walk from the villa you will discover the new 5 star hotel complex with spas, fitness centre, supermarket and shops.
Los Alcazares is a great town to visit. It has a long sandy beach which is on the shallow and safe waters of the Mar Menor. The beach has a wide promenade which runs along its entire length and has numerous beach bars and restaurants.
The town itself has numerous large supermarkets, there are quiet plazas to enjoy a coffee or sit out and enjoy a dinner in the evening. There are some lovely Spanish restaurants and tapas bars, Patio II is very popular for barbecued meats with a very Spanish style. There are international restaurants, an Indian Restaurant - Hindustani - is certainly the best one that I have tried in the area. There is a great chinese restaurant part of the group RUN. here are numerous tapas and Spanish restaurants, in particular try the 1920´s hotel on the beach and just behind the townhall for best tapas and a perfect location eating on the promenade, by the beach and looking out into Mar Menor.
