A Holiday in Costa Calida

Aug 23, 2008
Costa Calida is a 250-km strip of land along the Mediterranean in the Murcia province. Murcia is the ninth largest province of Spain, at least in terms of area. It contains many destinations of interest for holiday travelers, as its tourism industry thrives on a combination of modern resort communities and historic attractions.

One of the most visited cities in Costa Calida is La Manga. La Manga features twenty-two kilometers of sandy beaches that vary in width from 100 to 800 meters. On one side lie the clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea, while on the other side are the warm waters of Mar Menor, which is Europe's largest salt water lagoon. Water sport enthusiasts flock to La Manga. There is a great scuba diving club that accepts divers of all skill levels. If you want a guide through the waters on either side of the city, they are available. Or, if you'd rather explore on your own, you'll find the variety of ocean life fascinating. Beginners often start in Mar Menor and later move up to boat dives in the Mediterranean when they've gained more experience. Both seas offer a unique view of the world, and divers come from all over the globe to see La Manga's ocean floor.

If diving isn't your thing, La Manga also has a thriving nightlife and a string of world-class restaurants. If you have children, many restaurants feature great kids' menus for those under twelve. A stay at one local hotel even gives you the option of having a babysitter so that you can enjoy a quiet, romantic meal with your sweetheart. From Asian cuisine to pizza, the restaurants of La Manga offer as much variety as any large city. The nightlife of the city features everything from dance clubs to live music with styles borrowed from all cultures of the world. If you want jazz, you've got it. If you want to dance, all you have to do is find the right club.

La Manga isn't the only thing that Costa Calida has to offer. The port city of Cartagena is a fascinating place to visit as well. A walled town with many forts for defense, Catagena has a rich history of architecture and features various ruins of Roman origin. Several of the museums of the city are built into the old ruins. There's even an old temple to the Phoenician god Melqart. These ruins are some of the most interesting in the entire province of Murcia.

Another city in this area with a rich history is Mazzaron. The Town Hall and Former Culture Center are prime examples of the Modernist style popular in the early twentieth century, and the Church of San Andreas features sixteenth century architecture. The ruins of the Castle of the Valez family are another great study in Spanish history.

Costa Calida features ancient ruins, a thriving nightlife and hundreds of kilometers of beaches. Holiday travelers will find all their curiosities stimulated in every one of the cities lining Costa Calida. Whether you want to see history come to life or make history yourself, Costa Calida has what you desire.
