The Murcia region
Murcia is characterised by its old history of commerce and agriculture. Already its original inhabitants, Iberian tribes, established commercial relations with Phoenicians and Greeks. Lateron it became first a Carthaginean colony, then a Roman colony. (Carthago Nova, today's Cartagena still reminds of that fact). The Moors established effective and modern agricultural production, which still today is an important economic factor, thanks to their advanced technologies.
Of major touristical interest is of course the Mediterranean coast, Costa Calida ("the warm coast"), with beaches of fine sand. The salt-water lagoon Mar Menor and La Manga del Mar Menor offer great possibilities for water sports. The inland is almost desertic, and you may visit several towns which still preserve their medieval structures.
Typical cooking includes stews, salads, roasted meat, rice, and of course great sea-food along the coast. Murcia also produces wine of high quality.
The capital of the region, located inland at the banks of the river Segura. Major attractions include the Baroque cathedral and the spectacular "Real Casino". Water park Terra Natura and zoo
The above mentioned Carthaginean Cartago Nova is of great historical importance, with numerous monuments from ancient times until today. It also has the region's most important port.
Due to its protected location in the Gulf of Mazarron, water temperatures are about higher 5°C higher than in the surrounding Mediterranean and its pleasant micro-climate makes it an ideal holiday destination.
La Manga del Mar Menor
"La Manga" is a sandy promontory with great beaches, located inbetween the Mediterranean sea and the largest salt-water lagoon of Europe, the "Mar Menor".
Puerto de Mazarron
Thanks to its location in a bay, Mazarron is protected from the cool currents from trom the Atlantic Ocean, and the water temperature is 5 degrees Celsius warmer than in the open Mediterranean. Also, there is a very pleasant micro-climate, even in winter the temperatures are about 15 to 20 degrees Celsius.
Around Mazarron there are several wonderful and wide sandy beaches which alternate with small bays and cliffs. The latter are of particular interest to divers because of the beautiful underwater world.
South of Mazarron there is a 26-kilometer long completely undeveloped stretch of beaches - the longest in Spain - with pristine fauna and flora. Off the coast you can watch dolphins and whales.
Puerto de Mazarron is the touristic center of the area, here you find golden sandy beaches such as "Playa del Puerto de Mazarron", "Playa del Rihuete" , "Playa de Bahia", "Playa de la Reya", all of them having been awarded the "Blue Flag" of the EU, and the "Playa de la Pava" .
In southeren direction there are more great sandy beaches, "El Castellar" (also awarded with a "Blue Flag"), "Bolnuevo", "El Rincon", "Cobaticas", "Percheles" and "Las Minas".
In the south of Puerto de Mazarron there are also several bays with nudist beaches, starting in Puntabela. These beaches are mostly of coarse sand or gravel, except "Cala Desnuda" which has fine grey sand.
Apart of the beaches, there are some more remarkable sights:
Ahead of the beach "Playa de la Isla" two Phoenician ships have been found, one of them the oldest and best conserved ever. In a documentation center you can see a replica of the ship in the scale of 1:3, as well as audiovisual presentations.
Furthermore, you can visit in Puerto de Mazarron the ruins of an ancient Roman salt fish factory.
The town of Mazarron is located about 5 kilometers inland from the beach, at the foot of the "volcanoes of Mazarron" which are extinct for a long time. Erosion has created from the dried lava streams of the volcano Bolnuevo strange rock formations which are known as "Ciudad Encantada de Bolnuevo", meaning "Enchanted Town of the Bolnuevo". In the town itself, the church of San Andrés, in typical Mudejar style, the monastery Convento de la Purísimas, the ruins of the castle Castillo de los Vélez, the modernist City Hall and the also modernist Old Cultural Association should be mentioned.
