Costa Calida (Murcia)

Costa Calida (Murcia) holidays

Sun and sand is practically guaranteed on the Costa Cálida. And its saltwater lagoon is one of the best swimming spots on the Med, so pitch up by the cliffs and get acquainted with the spoils of this warm coast. Golf, seafood and nightclubs are also on the star-studded agenda.

Costa Calida Murcia resorts

Playa de Orihuela

La Manga

A narrow sandbar placed along south-eastern Spain, La Manga divides the Mediterranean from the beautiful inland lagoon of the Mar Menor, ‘little sea’.

Sun-kissed shores

Like everything else in the region, the seas here are warm, making them perfect for swimming or even just a quick paddle. The beaches are swathed in soft golden sand and backed by bar-lined promenades, dunes or pine forests depending on which one you pick. You won’t leave disappointed.

A sheltered spot

The Mar Menor, or ‘little sea’, is a saltwater lagoon separated from the Mediterranean by a spit of land known as La Manga. Its mild, shallow waters and pristine sands have made it the region’s most exciting area, so it’s no wonder it pulls in the crowds.

Hannibal’s capital

The historic city of Cartagena has been an important naval port for over 2,000 years. Hannibal and his elephants made it their Spanish base en route from Carthage to Rome. The city’s old town’s peppered with Roman, Phoenician, Byzantine and Moorish monuments, including an impressive amphitheatre and two fortresses!

Beaches

Madeira is dotted with small, secluded beaches made from natural volcanic sand, so they’re all pretty unique. There’s a peaceful spot 25 minutes’ drive from Funchal, and over in Machico, the island’s second-biggest town, you’ll discover a manmade golden-sand beach that’s great for kids. Just pick a place!

La Zenia

Sights

The island’s famous for its flowers. You’ll find out why at the Botanical Gardens in Funchal. These sit right on a hillside, so you’ll also get some unbeatable views of the city. But if you want pure and simple culture, there are many museums, galleries and monasteries to explore.

Nightlife

Madeira’s nightlife is mainly centred on Funchal. Head down to the marina for tapas and cocktails, or go downtown and check out one of the clubs. If you’re feeling really flush, a night in the casino could see your luck change – or you could just enjoy over-ice tipples at least.
