Painting holidays on the Costa Calida Spain
Costa Cálida translates into English as the warm coast. Located just south of Murcia along the Mediterranean coast, a holiday to Costa Cálida will certainly live up to its name and in two and a half hours travelling from the UK you can be stepping out into the one of the 315 days a year of sunshine. Costa Cálida is a 250km stretch of coastline starting at El Mojon and finishing at Águilas with plenty of beautiful beaches, fishing ports and dramatic scenery in between.
Things to do on holiday in Costa Cálida
With so many towns along the stretch, there are plenty of activities to keep everyone amused while on holiday in Costa Cálida. The Mar Menor is a large lagoon ideal for learning water sports. Relaxing in the mineral-rich water is said to be very therapeutic. Nearby is Lo Págan, a saltpan where you can cool down and cleanse in the sludge. Those after an adrenaline kick can take part in water sports anywhere along the coast, while the rest can explore the gardens of Águilas and the ruins of Velez Castle.
Costa Cálida is one of the rare places in Spain that has managed to escape the extreme tourist industry, so holidays in Costa Cálida can spoil you with visits to unspoilt beaches. Find golden sands and impressive lighthouses at Puerto de Mazarrón or settle down for a beachside drink after a day of canoeing and sailing at La Puntica.
Murcia is the nearest big city to Costa Cálida, with a stunning cathedral, museums and shops. Wine buffs can head to Bullas to visit one of Murcia’s winemaking areas and sample some of the wine produced there.
