SURROUNDINGS LAS COLINAS DREAMS
The Costa Cálida (Spanish for warm coast) is one of the Spanish Costa's in the region of Murcia. This costa is situated in the south-east of the Iberian Peninsula at the Mediterranean Sea and merges in the north with the Costa Blanca and in the south with the Costa de Almería. The most important town is the harbour city of Cartagena. The largest part of the Costa Cálida is very rugged and therefore not as overrun by tourism as the Costa Blanca. The most densely built-up area is around the Mar Menor and around Cartagena.
The Murcia coast has many facets for the nature lover. Many areas are under nature protection.
On the shores of the Mar Menor and with its seven kilometres of beach, Los Alcázares is an ideal enclave for water sports, only 24 kilometres from the city of Cartagena.
Santiago de la Ribera is located in the Mar Menor. This old fishing village has 4 kilometres of beach, with fine golden sand, and its waters, surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea, are ideal for enjoying the sea, the sun and water sports all year round.
San Pedro del Pinatar, situated opposite the calm waters of the Mar Menor, is one of the main tourist destinations on the Murcia coast. There is also Lo Pagán, a lively tourist centre with all kinds of tourist services such as hotels, bars, restaurants and shops. Along the long promenade, overlooking the Mar Menor, there are extensive beaches such as La Puntica or Villananitos.
