COSTA CALIDA´S BEACHES
The well-known coast of COSTA CALIDA includes about 170 kilometers and alternates between beaches, rocky coves, steep slopes and streams. It seems strange for this region, but a natural phenomenon such as LA MANGA exists here. This promontory closes of the MAR MENOR and separates it from the MEDITERRANEAN SEA, leaving it accessible only through channels.
From the fishing village in ÁGUILAS as far as the white dune beaches in EL MOJON, in SAN PEDRO DEL PINATAR one pass inevitably LOS ALCAZARES and LOS NAREJOS which belong to the most important places in this region. Beaches and lonely bays line themselves up and continue for many kilometers. They do not only invite boat owners and anglers, but also divers and beach lovers a lot for everyone to discover and explore.
In addition, this unique coast has to offer even more like small beautiful and picturesque villages, such as MAZARRON, AZOHIA and CABO DE PALOS which invite to dwell for a little while and enjoy life; the harbor of MAZARRON invites to undertake pleasant excursions or to experience the excellent kitchen after a day at the beach. Paradises made by nature and unique in the MEDITERRANEAN just like the beaches CALBLANQUE and CALNEGRE….but there is another place which is highly appreciated by tourists:
LA MANGA DEL MAR MENOR one of the most cherished resorts of the MEDITERRANEAN. A paradise between two seas on the one hand with endless beaches and their crystal clear water on the other hand hot thermal pools which are considered curative therefor healthy with their high iodine content. On top it is surrounded by a very good infrastructure, as well as an extensive variety of hotels to choose from.
The MAR MENOR, LOS ALCAZARES and LOS NAREJOS are not only wonderful natural spas underneath the free sky, but are also at the same time one of the most important and highly estimated places in order to take part in regattas. Because of the pleasant temperatures and the special characteristics of the sea warmly, quietly and shallowly, it is possible to practice all kinds of different aquatic sports all year round. For the lovers of the different aquatic sports it is one of the best places to learn, to practice and to improve.
