The province has over 170km of coastline dotted with wonderful beaches in addition to the largest salt-water lagoon in Europe (the Mar Menor), ideal for family bathing as the water here is calm and shallow and 5 degrees warmer than the rest of the Mediterranean.

On the coast you can enjoy the stunning cliffs, endless white sandy beaches, pretty ports and undiscovered coves with crystal clear water; the beautiful and historic towns of Alhama, Lorca and Murcia are all well worth a visit if time permits as are the numerous attractive villages that dot the Costa Calida countryside as well as the impressive landscape of the Sierra de Espuña mountains.
Apart from the excellent beaches, there are many other attractions in this area and Murcia has a rich history. Declared an historic-artistic site in 1964, Lorca is known as the ‘baroque city’ because of the significant architectural legacy of this style standing in its historic centre. From the Paleolithic period until Roman times, a wide variety of cultures and settlers converged in the town of Lorca and testimony to this are the great many archaeological sites, the Milaria Column from the Roman age, the Tower of Espolan or the Alfonsina Tower, among others.
