Costa Calida (warm coast)
The Costa Calida coastline is in the province of Murcia and this area includes some exclusive holiday resorts. It appeals to those families looking for a tranquil and Mediterranean holiday. The area boasts a micro climate with mild winters and warm summers. The region has the greatest natural lake of Spain: the Mar Menor (Small Sea) lagoon. It is a salt water lagoon, adjacent to the Mediterranean Sea. The calm clear waters are perfect for family holidays with toddlers. We have just visited the region (October 2013) and the weather was fabulous! you can read about our stay here.
