Area Information
While the Costa Blanca and Costa del Sol remain popular, there is a virtually undiscovered Costa on the south east coast of Spain....... Costa Cálida. In the Costa Cálida you will find authentic Spanish villages, unspoilt blue flag beaches and much less commercialization than the other Costa's. Costa Cálida is known as 'the warm coast' as the temperature rarely falls below 18ºC and there is over 300 days of sunshine. It also has excellent transport links from both Alicante and Murcia and the new proposed international airport at Corvera. The new motorway that links the Mar Menor/Cartagena and Vera is now open making the whole of Costa Cálida more accessible. Additionally the beautiful and lively cities of Barcelona, Madrid, Granada are all within easy train or road distances making for exciting weekend adventures.

Costa Cálida and particularly Puerto de Mazarrón is a lovely traditional Spanish holiday resort. The Spanish have been holidaying here for years and understand the uniqueness of the area. There are many unspoilt beaches and beautiful coves running along the coastline from La Azohía to Bolnuevo making this a haven for anyone looking for a holiday home or permanent residence. Spain has developed into a much more liberal country in the last ten years and the coastline along from Bolnuevo boasts many nudist beaches for those who want to really get away from it all. Puerto de Mazarrón area has been undiscovered for years by the British and is only now really coming into its own. You won't find McDonalds or fish and chip shops but what you will find is traditional Spanish restaurants and bars and, for those who like the nightlife, there is a small area of bars that stay open until the `last person leaves´.

Although Spanish is still spoken wherever you go in Puerto de Mazarrón, there are a number of doctors, dentists, and commercially run enterprises which speak English - although half the fun is trying to converse in your newly learnt language.

There are many plans for the future of Mazarrón. Most of the beaches will boast new promenades and a major new attraction is the new marina housing many shops, bars and restaurants. The proposed Paramount Themed park will also bring a number of people to this area over the next 10 years.

Following the coast road from Puerto De Mazarrón, we reach Bolnuevo where the wind has sculptured bizarre figures made of rock next to the sandy beaches and crystal clear waters. From Bolnuevo, there are vertical cliffs along the coast covering approximately six miles.

Within a ten-minute drive you have an area of hot springs and a mere 30 minutes' drive will take you to the breath taking Sierra Espuña National Park.

Mazarrón town about ten minutes' drive from Puerto de Mazarron and is still very much a traditional working town. Mazarrón has always been a mining town, even in Roman times. It was considered a rich area producing silver, iron oxide and alum. Today the mines are closed but you can still see the remains of the old mines, and walk amongst them on the hillsides. The town is now moving very much into the 21st century with the old buildings being restored and a number of new shops opening each month. The Saturday market is always a must and this is held in the town square. The town also boasts an indoor market, which is open every day except Sunday. For shopping on a Sunday, no better place to go than the market in Puerto de Mazarrón. Here again you will find everything from locally grown fruit and vegetables to your covers for your sun lounger.

For the golfers amongst you, there are a number of excellent courses in and around Murcia. From Puerto de Mazarrón you are only an hour's drive from the famous Altorreal in Murcia, Dessert Springs in Almeria, La Manga (everyone knows this one), Valle de Este in Almeria and Camposol in Mazarrón. If you look at the La Manga/Mar Menor area there are a number of fabulous golf resorts built by Polaris World.

Summer arrives in earnest in June and each week there are more and more Spanish people in Puerto de Mazarrón enjoying the beaches and restaurants. An interesting fact about Mazarrón and the Puerto De Mazarrón is the swelling numbers of people that arrive during the fiestas and the summer months of July and August. The population of Mazarrón is approximately 35,000 people while the population of Puerto De Mazarrón is approx 15,000 people - quite small numbers in comparison to some of the Costa's. Around Navidad (Christmas) and Semana Santa (Easter) the population in the Port swells to somewhere between 50,000 - 60,000 people but, the most fascinating thing about the Port is that during July there are about 180,000 people and in August up to 220,000 people all experiencing the relaxing beaches and the great restaurants - the Spanish know what a great place this is to be and so do we who live here.

If it's late nights you want, one of the summer highlights is when Bali Hai the open-air summer club opens - then you know summer has arrived. This large open-air club is on two levels and you will find all age groups from Gran to Granddaughter. As the tired ones amongst us go home at 2am the youngsters are arriving in their droves and party until 7.30 in the morning and, there is never any sign of trouble!

Through the summer months the restaurants will be full from early evening, when the European people tend to eat until the early hours of the morning when the Spanish eat, this gives the bar owners and restaurateurs a great opportunity to `make hay while the sun shines´. Although this is a mainly Spanish environment there are a number of English entrepreneurs that have opened flourishing businesses in the area. There a too many to mention but a number of good English bars, UK household suppliers and some really good English restaurants. Ah, I hear you all saying, is it becoming too English and the answer is no, there are still many more Spanish bars, restaurants and shops to enjoy than in a lot of other areas and, there is always that one day when you would like a traditional English breakfast or evening meal. What better way to spend the summer months than enjoying yourself on the beaches, visiting good restaurants or driving into the mountains and escape the crowds.

If history is what you look for then Mazarrón has it. A Fish Salting factory was found in 1976 when work was being carried out to foundations of a building in the Port. The structures preserved in the room are part of a great industrial complex from the 1V - V centuries B.C. dedicated to the process of cleaning, cutting and salting fish for the production of salted fish and fish sauces. The other part of the factory would have extended under today's streets and adjoining land.

Another interesting piece of history is at the Playa De La Isla, where there lies two great underwater treasures dated V11 BC. Known as Mazarrón 1 and 2, two Phoenician boats act as a reminder that Mazarrón was once an important commercial link for the Phoenicians. The two boats are the only ones of their kind in the world.
