Costa Cálida “Warm Coast“ is a popular area for both tourists and residents.
The Costa Cálida is the approximately 250 km stretch of Mediterranean coastline of the Spanish province of Murcia. The area extends from El Mojón in the north near the province of Alicante, to near the municipality of Áquilas in the south bordering on the region of Almería province.
Two seas along one coastline – the Mar Menor and the Mediterranean, impressive cliffs, heavenly beaches of endlesswhite sand, lively ports and wild coves with crystal-clear water, 320 days of sunshine each year and mild temperatures – even in winter – with a yearly average of more than 19 °C. This is the Costa Cálida, the ideal place to spend a time relaxing both in winter and summer.
The Costa Cálida gives visitors the choice of bathing in either of two seas. On one side, the warm peaceful waters of the Mar Menor with beaches like Cala del Pino ( Pinetree Cove),ideal for families. On the other side, just a few metres away are the waters of the Mediterranean with beaches like Punta del Estacio.
The capital city of the Costa Cálida is Murcia which is often described as one of the most beautiful and historic in the country. There is a great selection of historic buildings and sites including impressive city walls and churches. The province of Murcia produces more lemons than any other area in Spain.
