Costa Calida is most famous for the La Manga country club and the Mar Menor which is Europes biggest inland salt lake. There are a large number of developments in this beautifull area. This is but a small part of this region.
The Costa Calida is situated in the South-East of the Iberian Peninsula. To the north lies the Costa Blanca and to the south the Costa Almeria. There are over 250 kilometres of coastline made up of small inlets, coves and sandy beaches. The waters are wonderfully unpolluted and perfect for sub aqua activities with clear views of the Mediterranean flora and fauna such as sea bass, moray and moonfish.
The people are gentle and helpful, the whole region is well worth taking the time to explore and the good living is to be enjoyed. The Costa Calida is one of the healthiest places on earth to be. The area is sheltered against Meseta winds making the temperature pleasant throughout the whole year. Access is easy as the area is just over an hours drive from Alicante and is also close to Murcia Airport. Unspotted by the holiday mass this area is still in the early days of development.
A natural delight:
It is therefore not overcome with bars and restaurants though these can be found in Puerto de Mazzarron and around the golf courses. The scenic routes across the Algarrobo range are delightful; there are rabbits, partridges and foxes roaming and it provides a natural habitat for kestrels and species of wild eagle.
The mountain areas are abundant with wild thyme, rosemary and lavender, which can be found complimenting many local dishes. Mazarron is famous for its plethora of wonderful seafood dishes; mouth watering local dishes include bonito fish and noodles, peppers, garlic, sauté tomatoes and aniseed.
