Costa Calida / Murcia region has something to offer everyone no matter what type of holiday you are looking for. Mar Menor is the the largest salt water lagoon in Europe - a 10 minute drive away - is a very safe warm water sports haven providing a huge variety of beaches. (FOR MUCH MORE DETAIL & LINKS TO WEBSITES - SEE OWNER'S WEBSITE - FOLLOW LINK AT THE BOTTOM OF THE ADVERT)
There are several nature reserves ranging from mud flats where flamingos can be seen to large sea cliffs, sheltered bays with golden beaches. Inland there are mountain ranges where hikers will find everything from an enjoyable stroll to strenuous hikes in beautiful scenery.
There is the regional capital, Murcia City within a 20 minute drive. It is the 7th largest city in Spain but maintains a very accessible feel with a wide range of activities to occupy you for a day, an evening or for several visits over the course of your holiday.
Historic Cartagena - a 30 minute drive - remains a major Spanish naval port and has been a much fought over as a strategic port since the times of Carthage & the Romans. Major excavations are ongoing and the museum and Roman Theatre are well worth a visit. The city, like Murcia, has superb shopping, restaurants, bars etc.
La Torre is a self-contained golf resort with so much more to offer. A 5 star Intercontinental Hotel with all the facilities you would expect. A busy Town Centre with many restaurant and bar options. A bank & ATM, a supermarket (with a delivery service), a choice of 16 swimming pools, tennis courts and of course a superb golf course from Nicklaus Design - a guarantee of quality.
All this without having to leave the resort, however with so much to experience within short drives, we strongly recommend car hire to really enjoy your time here. (MUCH MORE DETAIL ON OWNERS WEBSITE - FOLLOW LINK AT BOTTOM OF THE ADVERT)
Activities outside the resort, all within 30 minute drives, include endless numbers of beaches, water skiing, sailboarding , scuba diving, horse riding, karting, trekking / hill walking. Much of the local area is comparatively flat so is comfortable for cyclists.
The many towns around the Mar Menor waterfront offer a varied eating experience with lots of sea food but of course the Spanish are also great meat munchers. All tastes are catered for although Vegetarians may need to look harder for suitable restaurants & should always ensure you make the waiter aware that you require food without meat, fish etc. as many seemingly vegetarian dishes may contain "surprises."
Seasonally, there are Fiestas celebrating main events such as Easter & Christmas with colourful displays, summer-long San Javier Jazz Festival and many others. Our Spanish hosts don't need an excuse for a party.
