Puerto de Mazarron, Murcia: Parque del Faro apartments are nestled on a headland in a perfect location for access to all local amenities, beaches, shops and harbour with its wonderful restaurants, promenade and views. Watch the fishermen bringing in their catch in the commercial harbour or admire the luxury yachts in the newly rebuilt leisure marina. Why not walk up to the Faro (lighthouse) and watch the sun rise or set in spectacular fashion. The atmosphere is relaxed and the views over the bay and behind to the mountains are wonderful. This is not a place for those seeking package holiday entertainment but one where you can recharge the batteries on a wide choice of beaches, enjoy the local sports scene or simply watch the world go by. There are restaurants to suit all tastes and pockets but if you want a McDonald's you can always go to Cartagena which is 20 minutes away (approx 6 euro by bus ) and also has a rich Roman history, including amphitheatre 19th century submarine & museums which will keep historians of any age occupied for hours. Take a trip around the bay in Cartagena and learn more about the history of this ancient harbour which still caters for submarines and ocean liners or take a dolphin watching cruise in Puerto de Mazarron. There really is something for everyone!
Mazarron has a wonderful array of beaches to suit every taste. The promenade beach follows the sweep of the bay towards La Azohia to the East and is perfect for children aged 0 to 100! To the West there are fine sandy beaches with surf and beach Volleyball at Bolnuevo. Playa de la Reya is a lovely cove with fine sand next to the smaller marina. Restaurants can be found all along the coastline along with tree lined promenades and walk ways. A tourist information pack is provided in the apartment with details of many different sites, activities and restaurant suggestions and recommendations.
The Castillitos or 'Guns of Mazarron' as they are affectionately known lie to the east of La Azohia at the top of a mountain road which is not for the faint hearted. The drive and views are fabulous and military historians will find the 14 inch Vickers built guns and now derelict buildings fascinating. The drive from Isla Plana through the 'forgotten valley' is wonderful and the old customs house which looks like something out of Zoro is worth a stop.
Further inland the fort at Lorca provides a fascinating insight into the history of the area but beware you may be tapped on the shoulder by a medieval knight. The Sierra Espuna provides miles of mountain and forest trails for walkers and cyclists and picnic areas as well as scenic drives and the opportunity to see wild boar and North African mountain goats.
At the end of September Cartagena comes alive with lavish re-enactments of the Roman defeat of new Carthage. Some 2000 locals take part in this event and families are loyal to their roots! Mazarron's fiesta is in mid April (see Tourist info website)
A Phoenician wreck lies in the bay just off Isla beach in Puerto de Mazarron and the Roman fish factory next to the harbour is fascinating.
Out of season Puerto de Mazarron provides warm weather and relaxation away from the colder northern European winters. In season it is a vibrant family holiday resort catering for all interests and ages. A traditional holiday destination for Spanish families which is becoming recognised as a little gem by savvy visitors who return year on year.
Ideally situated clean & comfortable apartment within easy walking distance of beaches,shops,restaurants & marina.Car hire good for visits to The Sierra Espunas,The Guns of Mazarron & the coastal road through the mountains to the town of Aguilas,beautiful views,& many more places. It was Jan & Rob's third visit to Mazarron,we love the area and the beaches are great.Lisa & Pedro were very helpful and everything we requested was there for us on our arrival, a lovely couple. Thanks to Anne, you made booking your lovely apartment so easy. Wish we were still there, a lovely place for a relaxing holiday.Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to family and friends.
This is a well equipped apartment with good Wi-fi, has good safe access and location. The underground parking garage is a real bonus. The owner provided good customer service throughout with good communication. The apartment was clean and ready for us to walk into.
All facilities including beaches and marina are in easy walking distance. We had several good meals in the area and some of the further out beaches (you need transport) are wonderful. We did mention to the owner the beds are a bit uncomfortable and she was appreciative of the feedback and has decided to improve these. It can be a bit noisy on a Friday and Saturday night from nearby restaurant but best to join in as the restaurant is very good. Monica downstairs is very friendly and extremely helpful. Overall a great area and great location we enjoyed it and wont hesitate to go back.
Exactly as described. As others have mentioned, the location is ideal for both the town restaurants and beaches (although not necessary, a car is an advantage to explore the area and get to the further afield and quieter beaches). The flat is very well equipped and comfortable. Of particular note is the provision of beach equipment (chairs, brollies, mats and a cool bag). Also, the underground parking space is a real bonus: firstly, so that you get into a cool car and secondly so that you are able to park at busy times (weekends & Bank Holidays) when street parking is hard/impossible to find.
One minor problem when the internet connection failed was quickly sorted out with a short text to Anne, who contacted the provider.
we had a brilliant holiday. the appartment was much better than we hoped.Well maintained and secure.Great location, near to beach and restaurants.would definitely stay there again. P C
I've hesitated to holiday in Spain because I thought it would be overrun by other British people. What a revelation this was! We went outside the school holidays and found Puerto de Mazarron to be full of life, and most of it Spanish. Everyone was extremely friendly too. There are loads of restaurants with good food that's not very expensive, and beach after beach that you can walk or drive to. We hired a car and had a day out in the mountains as well as the town of Cartagena - there is literally masses to do in the area. The flat is absolutely perfect, with everything you could need (including WiFi!) and it was great being able to park securely under the building and catch the lift up to the appartment. It's clean, modern and comfortable. I would definitely recommend both the flat and the location, and will be doing so to friends and family. We hope to go again too. Thank you Anne and Geoff for a wonderful holiday.
we really enjoyed our stay in this lovely clean apartment it was so convenient for everything and one of the most relaxing places we have stayed in
great beaches, lovely promenade, lots of good places to eat especially the local ones. a must for all visitors should be to the guns at Castillious and a visit to the Sierra Espunas where the scenery is terrific and the views are out of this world . Also this is a great place for walkers but if you intend to really hike up here take good boots and plenty of water the effort will be more than rewarded
I would recommend you hire a car if you stay more than a week as there is much to see in the area
overall a great and very relaxing holiday in a super location
