The direct translation for “Costa Calida” is “Warm Coast”, and that is hardly an exaggeration. Indeed, the hot sun beats down with benevolence upon this scenic stretch of white sandy beach, and in the middle of winter, when the rest of Spain is freezing from cold snaps, the Costa Calida is strangely warm, thanks to its delectable microclimate making it totally normal for locals to go swimming on Christmas Day! Water sports on the Costa Calida include everything from windsurfing to kite surfing, jet skiing, water skiing and parasailing. Despite such grand selection a lot of people find simple thrill in just diving into the water and riding the very low-flying waves. You'll find affordable holiday accomodation to suit all needs and budgets here, from luxury holiday villas to self catering holiday homes and Costa Calida apartments. Murcia is the principle city upon the Costa Calida, and is a destination by its own right, but also Alicante on the Costa Blanca isn't far away.
After settling into one of the holiday rentals in Costa Calida, cut straight to the chase and spend a day sunbathing on Mar Menor, Murcia’s lovely beach which is well appreciated by increasingly larger crowds every year. Those who revel in the social throng are far from dismayed by the people-watching that takes place here, aided by a number of impromptu beach sports such as Frisbee and paddle ball, as well as the beach volleyball area where people congregate and meet. Everybody is extremely friendly, making this beach a highly pleasant experience for young vacationers, romantic couples and entire families on holiday together on the Costa Calida. Inside the town of Murcia, a number of delightful attractions await the curious sightseer who would like a bit of respite from the relentless relaxation down on the beach. The most beautiful thing while holidaying in Spain is, that you have the most times the possibility to reach a bigger city during your beach holidays, so that it won't become boring. Those places you'll find all over the country - not only in Costa Calida:
Start out your tour of Murcia at the Cardenal Belluga Plaza, the town center where one can get a strong idea of local culture. Sip sangria at an outdoor café and watch the local population go about their business - though, here in southern Spain, everything is so relaxed it hardly resembles business. Stroll over to the Santa Maria Cathedral, and discover an architectural wonder within the otherwise carefree beach town. Stressed out from so much sightseeing? The many bars, pubs, nightclubs and discos will give you an opportunity to unwind and mingle with locals and foreigners alike. Nightlife in Murcia and all throughout the Costa Calida is locally recognized as among the best of the Spanish coasts. Recover from the festivities in your Costa Calida apartments after a long night out on the town.
