The Costa Calida is the approximately 250 km stretch of Mediterranean coastline of the Spanish province of Murcia. This region has a micro-climate which features comparatively hot mean annual temperatures (and hence its name, " Warm Coast")
From the fishing town of Aguilas to the white dunes of the beach of El Mojon in San Pedro del Pinatar, there are kilometres of beaches and deserted coves In addition, there are delightful picturesque fishing villages, like La Azohia or Cabo de Palos and ports like the one at Mazarron
The northern end of this coastline in Costa Calida includes the Mar Menor ("Little Sea"), a coastal saltwater lagoon. The Mar Menor is separated from the Mediterranean by a 22km-long spit of land called La Manga, on which most of the tourism development for the region has been constructed.
The city of Murcia is 30 - 45 minutes drive inland from the resorts of the Mar Menor. It is the capital of the region an important administrative, religious, cultural and commercial centre. Founded by the Moors in the 9 th century, remnants of the old city walls still exist but these days it is the Cathedral that dominates the old town.

of the Mar Menor and it's coastal towns St. Javier and Los Alcazares.
