The Costa Calida, which literally means the warm coast, is situated in the south east of the Iberian Peninsula alongside the Mediterranean Sea. The extraordinary climate with an annual average temperature of 18 degrees and more than 2,800 hours of sunshine a year makes it a first class tourist destination. Murcia´s regional Airport situated at San Javier ensures easy access from Northern Europe

Costa Calida is situated in the southeast of the Iberian Peninsula. To the north lies the Costa Blanca and to the south lies the Costa de Almeria with a total of 250 kilometres of coastline.

Blessed by the mild Mediterranean climate it has at least 315 days of sun per year. Minimum temperatures range between 12-14C and maximum temperatures between 20-22C in winter. Summer temperatures vary between 18-20C minimum and between 30-35C maximum. The average annual temperature is 18C. The two main provinces in this region are MURCIA and Almeria.

This stretch of coastline runs from San Pedro del Pinatar, at the northern end of the Mar Menor (‘Little Sea’), to south of Puerto de Mazarron. It is in two parts; the most northerly section consists of the La Manga peninsula and Mar Menor, the southerly section extends from the promontory of Cabo de Palos to the resort town of Aguilas.

Like the Costa Blanca South it consists of beaches and rocky promontories with a backdrop of hills and mountains, and above all the unique La Manga peninsula that creates the Mar Menor. Compared with the other southern Costa’s it is still relatively unspoiled and apart from the historical city and port of Cartagena, there are no major towns along the coast.

In addition to its geographical attractions, the Costa Calida boasts three nature reserves: at the northern extremity the salt flats of the Regional Park of San Pedro are heavily populated with flamingos, herons, storks and other migratory bird life. Specially made wooden walkways allow tourists to visit the whole area. Along the coastline from Cabo de Palos, westwards towards the village of Portman, is the Calblanque Regional Park, a stretch of virgin coast with hills and empty beaches. The Marine Reserve of the Hormogas Isles, near Cabo de Palos, is world famous
