In the South-East corner of the Iberian Peninsula, squeezed between the
better-known regions of, Andalusia, Castile-La Mancha and Valencia is
the region of Murcia. It has a coastline of around 250 km. To the West
is the province of Granada which is easily reached in around three to
four hours. Also to the West are the province of Albacete and Almería.
To the north is the province of Albacete and Alicante to the East.
The coastal area is well known with sites such as the inland sea, the
Mar Menor. Nearby is the world-famous La Manga Club. From the white dunes
of the beach of El Mojon in San Pedro del Pinatar the coastline stretches
down to the fishing village of Aguilas.
Inland Murcia is a delight for those in search of nature, great scenery
and good hospitality. The mountains and woodland are full of wild game
and are frequently adorned with wonderful castles, fortresses, convents,
monasteries and hermitages. Away from the coast, beautiful quiet towns,
such as Bullas, Caravaca, Cehegín, Jumilla, Moratalla, Mula, and
Yecla plus numerous other towns offer visitors a glimpse of the real Spain.
