Situated in the region of Murcia, located in the south east of the Iberian peninsula between Andalucia, Castilla La Mancha and Valencia, in the purest of Spanish Mediterranean quarters, lies the region of Murcia, with 253 km of stunning Medtirranean coastline known as the Costa Calida. With 315 days of sunshine a year and an average temperature of 21 degrees celsius.
The Costa Calida offers a distinctly traditional Spanish feel and is a far cry from the high rise density development found on some other Spanish coastlines.
The Costa Calida (the warm coast), the ideal climate. Dry and warm not only because of its geographical latitude (similar to Tunisia) but also because it is protected from the cold winds by the beautiful mountain range (San Juan). The region enjoys an enviable climate, over 300 days of sunshine a year with an average temperature of 21 degrees celsius, one can sit in the sunshine in December and January.
Here you can discover the splendid rocky coastline of the Costa Calida. You will not find large commercialised beaches but numerous picturesque bays of golden sand and fine shingle with beautiful crystal clear sea water, which you can often enjoy having almost to yourself.
The Costa Calida is not only an area of great local history and tradition but also offers every modern facility for a comfortable lifestyle. Located in the province are eighteen hospitals, three universities and four international schools.
The offer of leisure while in contact with nature, is one of the great attractions offered by the region of Murcia.
The Costa Calida is not only a paradise for lovers of watersports and the traditional sun-and-sea holidaymakers, but, here the visitor can also find places of special ecological interest like the San Pedro del Pinatar salt lagoons – which border on the province of Alicante – or the Calblanque nature reserve, nestling on the mediterranean coastline close to La Manga and the seaside town of Cabo de Palos.
The interior also offers nature conservation areas including the nature park of Sierra Espuna and the El Valle Nature Reserve.
This stunningly beautiful area is easily accessable to two international airports. Alicante and Murcia (San Javier), all reached via an excellent road system which remains uncrowded all year round.
