: Murcia/San Javier
The Costa Calida lies between the Costa Blanca and Costa Almeria. The area known as Murcia enjoys on average, 315 days of sunshine every year and has an average temperature of 17 degrees.
Throughout the summer months the day time temperature is usually between 25'C and 35'C. The Murcia region remains largely unspoiled with many beautiful beaches and stunning scenery.
The village of Roda lies approximately 1.5km from the town and beaches of Los Alcazares. Los Alcazares lies next to the Mar Menor, which is Europe’s largest salt-water lagoon with more than 43 miles of coastline. The water is several degrees warmer than the nearby Mediterranean. The Mar Menor has a high salt content, which makes it easier to float in, and is rich in minerals, many of which are believed to be very good for your skin. The Mar Menor is ideal for most watersports including water skiing, jet skiing and scuba diving.
There is plenty to do in the area if you do not wish to laze around the pool or beautiful beaches. The historic City of Murcia is approximately 30 minutes from the resort by car. It hosts many of Spain’s well know department stores including El Corte Ingles. There are plenty of cultural attractions to see including Santa Maria Cathedral.
There are also many towns in the area that are easily accessible which are steeped in history or you could walk or cycle around one of the regional parks such as Sierra Espuna. Terra Natura Adventure Park (Murcia), Aqualandia Water Park (Benidorm) and Terramitica Park (Benidorm) are all within an hours drive away for those looking for even more adventure.
For winter sports - skiing and snow boarding, the ski area of Sierra Nevada is approximately 3 hours drive away.
