A wide cultural and tourist offer
Your days on the beach sunbathing and swimming in warm and crystalline waters are guaranteed, but Costa Cálida also offers other types of very interesting and varied activities that complete the tourists' visit to this area. Aside from beaches, it also has mountains, valleys and the typical orchards of Murcia.
Costa Cálida has a cultural past that is evident in the vestiges of Carthaginian and Roman cities. It also has medieval monuments as well as modernist buildings. Festivals and fiestas transmit the culture of the area in a striking and beautiful way, such as the fiestas of Moors and Christians or the famous international jazz concerts of San Javier.
The other types of activities that will surely satisfy the most demanding tourists are:
At Mar Menor resort, Regatas offers the best value racing fields in Spain. Water sports can be practiced at any time of the year thanks to its calm, shallow waters and very mild temperatures.
Those foodies who are eager to try new flavours can satisfy their gastronomic curiosity thanks to "el caldero" (a seafood stew cooked with rice, local fish and nachos), "la hueva", "la mojama", prawns and for dessert, the cierva pie and tocino de cielo.
Taking a mud bath is essential as it has very beneficial properties for the body thanks to the good climate of the region, which favours the concentration of minerals that have a very positive effect on health.
San Javier Airport's great location and its recognition as the best airport in its category (less than 2 million travellers) granted by the International Council of Airports, make it a great choice to travel directly to this destination. Because the coastal resort is very close, avoiding long trips to places of leisure and relaxation is easy.
There are many international airlines that already have agreements with this airport, which encourages more and more direct flights from different areas of Europe. This translates into comfort for the tourists and quicker transfers to hotels.
