El Mojon is a small Murcian village which marks the northern edge of the Costa Calida. Located between the beach and one of the most important national parks for migratory birds, El Mojon is a highly popular holiday getaway for those lucky enough to know of the village.
The village of El Mojon is ideally situated on the Costa Colida, with four excellent beaches within walking distance. The beaches of El Gachero, Mazarron, Punta Rihuete and the pebble beach of San Pedro del Pinatar are all easily accessible from a holiday rental villa in El Mojon, and although much of the coastline is protected, a series of wooden board walks gives walkers excellent access to the beaches that line this stretch of coastline, as well as to the restaurants and ports in the direction of San Pedro. The beaches of the Mar Menor, along with all the associated water sports (scuba diving, windsurfing, water skiing, parasailing and fishing) are just a 30 minute walk from a holiday rental property in El Mojon.
The regional park of Las Salinas y Arenales de San Pedro del Pinatar (San Pedro Nature Reserve) is the most important wetlands park in the Murcia. Hundreds of bird species can be spotted in the park, especially the huge flocks of dazzling flamingos which rest up during their migration.
Golf is a hugely popular sport from an El Mojon villa too. There are a range of world class golf courses just 10 minutes from El Mojon, including the world famous championship courses of Las Ramblas, Campoamar and Villamartin. There are no shortage of challenges for any level of golfer, but the fairways are wide and lush enough so that even newcomers will be able to enjoy a round. All you shall need for an excellent golf holiday from accommodation in El Mojon is a handicap certificate.
The La Manga Club is a magnificent resort on the thin strip of land that separates the Mar Menor from the Mediterranean. With excellent access to both shores, La Manga Club boasts some of the best water sports facilities anywhere in Europe, and if you cannot try your water sport of choice from a holiday apartment or villa in El Mojon, the short trip to La Manga Club should suffice. The charming Spanish villages of Lo Pagan, San Pedro and Pilar can be easily reached on foot, giving you an unrivalled experience of ‘Real Spain’.
The summer is wonderfully long in El Mojon, with average monthly temperatures remaining above 20˚C from the beginning of May, right through until the end of September. During the heat of the day in June, July and August, temperatures can reach around 35˚C, which makes the proximity of so many beaches a huge attraction!
Murcia’s San Javier Airport (MJV) is one of the easiest Spanish airports to reach from the UK. There are a great range of flights arriving in a daily basis from the UK, with flights landing almost hourly during the summer months.
