Costa calida map

Costa Calida

The Costa Calida is the province of Murcia and is situated South of Alicante and North of Almeria and is made up of spectacular mountain ranges, fertile plains and a dramatic coastline.

The area is served by two international airports Alicante and San Javier/Murcia and has excellent motorway links to the rest of Spain and Europe. A third airport is due to open late 2012 at Corvera, close to Murcia City.

Murcia province and the Costa Calida are still two of Spain's best kept secrets. The Spanish themselves have been buying holiday homes here for generations and the lack of big hotels means that people coming to this area are looking for something a little different.

Costa calida food

Authentic cuisine

Murcia has been called the "market garden" of Spain. Here you will find the freshest salad & vegetables. Citrus fruits that fall off the trees and of course for seafood lovers, the fishing boats return each evening with the days catch. There are many culinary delights to be tried, much of it robust and hearty.


Mazarron lies just inland from its port, towards the south-western end of the Costa Calida. The town is an easy drive from Murcia or Cartagena (35 mins), and there's quick access to the main north-south A7 coastal motorway.

The town and port of Mazarrón on Murcia's Costa Cálida boast a rich artistic heritage and a wide variety of leisure possibilities on the shores of the Mediterranean. The town nestles in the foothills of the Sierra de la Almenara Mountains, a mining area since Carthaginian times, and Mazarrón's bay benefits from being in the shelter of the uplands.
