Area Overview

The Costa Calida is a 250km coastal fringe of the Murcia region of Spain. Known as the ‘Warm Coast,’ its micro-climate and 320-plus days of annual sunshine attract tourists year-round. Temperatures of 32°C are common during the summer, with visitors enjoying temperatures of around 17°C during the winter months. Average rainfall is low compared with the rest of Spain, and nearby mountains provide shelter from the wind. The province of Alicante lies to the north of this coastline, with Almeria to the south. Championship golf courses are in abundance here, and the seaside spit of La Manga offers sailing, windsurfing and canoeing.

Things To Do on the Costa Calida

  • Mar Menor: The largest salt water lake in Europe boasting water temperatures of around 5°C higher than the Mediterranean Sea. Water sports including windsurfing, sailing and kayaking can also be enjoyed here.
  • Lo Pagan mud baths: Situated at the north end of the Mar Menor peninsula, mud baths offer relief from rheumatic aches and pains, and provide a full detox for the skin.
  • Cartagena: Historic town in Murcia – the second largest in the region. Ancient buildings and old city walls attract tourism throughout the year. The Municipal Archaeological Museum of Cartagena and Roman Theatre Museum provide an insight into the town’s long history.
  • Natural Park of Cabo Cope: Moorish tortoises, eagles, wild boar and Iberian skinks can all be seen in this area of unspoilt coastline, with its rugged cliffs and coves.
  • Mazarron: Another historically-important town with a military fort and a coarse grit beach backed by rocky coves.
  • Terra Natura Murcia: Wildlife park with shops, shows and adventure activities.

When to go to the Costa Calida

Summer and winter sunshine, warm temperatures and low average rainfall make the Costa Calida popular throughout the year. Families with young children may prefer to avoid the hottest summer months, when temperatures regularly hit 32°C in July and August. Incursion of the Berbers fiesta takes place in Los Alcazares between the Thursday before Easter and Easter Sunday, when mediaeval markets, shows and stunts take place in the town. The Roman and Carthaginian Festival in Cartagena can be seen during the last two weeks of September.
