Activity and Interests
Special interest holidays:
Scuba diving - For diving enthusiasts, the Hormigas Islands near Cabo de Palos have been declared a Marine Reserve due to their exceptional beauty and the conservation of the sea floor, but they are also acknowledged by scuba divers as being one of Spain’s premier dive sites. There are dive centres along the Costa Calida and Costa Blanca Coasts at Mazzaron, Aguilas, due to the large number of unfortunate ships that have come to grief in the rocky waters around the area.
Other water sports - The shallow waters and warm winds of the Mar Menor make it ideal for both Windsurfing and Kite boarding, both of which can be hired from various shops and schools along the Mar Menor shoreline. Jet skiing is also very popular and these can also be hired from ABC La Manga sports centre. Pedallos can be hired from the centre of Los Alcazares.

Los Alcazares, pronounced 'los-alcatha-res' is an old fishing and saltwater spa town on the Costa Calida (warm coast) in the Murcia region of Spain. The town is on the western shore of the Mar Menor, a saltwater lagoon separated from the Mediterranean Sea by a 22 kilometre long strip of land called La Manga. The Mar Menor is always 3-4 degrees C warmer than the Mediterranean and the area enjoys an average of 320 days of sunshine each year. Along it’s shores there are a variety of bars, cafes and restaurants providing drinks, tapas, meals and entertainment. The warm and shallow waters of the Mar Menor make the resort a mecca for sailing, windsurfing and jet skiing enthusiasts.
On the 13th October 1983, the town was afforded Municipal Autonomy and in celebration of this, a week-long outdoor party is held every October featuring live music, shows and firework displays. During the last three days of March every year, Los Alcazares plays host to a large medieval market and numerous events in recollection of the times when Barbary pirates used to raid this stretch of Spain’s coastline during the 15th century. Throughout the last two weeks in August, the town hosts ‘La Huerta’ the international celebration of the region’s status as the market garden of Spain, when Spanish and other European countries gather to display their folklore, handicrafts and gastronomic feasts from their local produce.
Along the 7km promenade you will find over 20 beach bars where you can get a drink or a snack type meal, hire sun beds, parasols and pedallos. Being as flat as it is, cycling is very popular in Los Alcazares and bikes can be hired from several hire shops in the town. You can also hire motorbikes behind the Deutsche Bank in the El Oasis development at the North end of town. There are 2 tourist information offices in Los Alcazares, which can also provide lots of up-to-date literature regarding local events and places to visit in English.
