With wonderful views of the magnificent Mar Menor, nestled neatly in the Province of Murcia, on the eastern coast of Spain, is the traditional town of Los Belones. A Los Belones holiday is the perfect option for those who are looking for a fantastic beach holiday and do not mind crowds during the warm summer months. What’s more, a luxurious Los Belones holiday rental villa will provide all of the comforts of home as well as some much needed shelter from the scorching midday sun.
With Los Belones located close to the beaches along the mainland coastline of the Mar Menor, visitors will find that their days can be filled up with many watery activities to enjoy. This includes the likes of swimming, sailing, diving, fishing, windsurfing, snorkelling, jet skiing and paddle boating. Other activities widely available in the town and the immediate area include the likes of walking, mountaineering, mountain biking, horse riding, football, volleyball, tennis and golf.
If you decide to leave your Los Belones holiday rental villa for the day to explore the province of Murcia further, then it is recommended that you at least spend one afternoon in the city of Murcia itself. The city looks very antiquated but this is due to the fact that it is home to many older buildings and is now considered to be a “university town”. One building that should not be overlooked when visiting Murcia is the Cathedral of Murcia. The cathedral was built on the site of a previous mosque in the 13th century and is very ornate both inside and out. The bell tower on the cathedral is of particular significance as it is the tallest freestanding bell tower to be found in the whole of Spain. The oldest bell from the tower, which dates back to the 14th century, is displayed in the Museum of the Cathedral of Murcia.
Booking a Los Belones holiday rental villa means that you will be able to enjoy some fabulous weather, with a mixture of an Arid and Mediterranean climate. This means that the town is mainly dry and warm throughout the year. Most travellers stay in Los Belones from April through to September when it can reach as warm as 29 degrees Celsius during the daylight hours. The lowest temperatures usually occur in January and February when it can drop to around 16 degrees Celsius, which may be more comfortable for those who don’t like too much heat. There is very little rainfall during the year and Los Belones sees approximately 8 inches of rain during every 12 months.
