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 which 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 provinces 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.
