Murcia is a region on the south eastern coast of Spain, home to many well known golfing resorts including the likes of La Manga and Mar Menor. It is the perfect golfing destination with 21 courses over a 30 mile and enjoys 300 days of sunshine. We are going to take a break from golf and tell you about Murcia off the course. There is much to see, so why not become a Murcia explorer and enjoy the sights of this south eastern city on the Mediterranean coast.

Cathedral de Santa Maria

The Cathedral de Santa Maria has to be on the list when in Murcia. Spain is known for many beautiful cathedrals and Santa Maria is one of them; stunning interiors and impressive architecture. The cathedral is combined with a really good museum and is definitely worth a visit.

El Faro de Cabo de Palos

A modern lighthouse but provides a lovely place for stroll by the sea, enjoying the Mediterranean sea breeze and gorgeous views of the La Manga strip. When the weather is good you can enjoy a swim at the beach or enjoy a drink at the several bars and cafes along the strip.

Las Charcas Mud Baths

This is a great place to visit that is absolutely free. Spend quality time with family and friends while having lots of fun. The idea is simple, get covered in mud, and then wash off in the salty water, which does wonders in clarifying and cleaning skin.

Mar Menor Beach

A very popular beach in the region of Murcia with many beach front bars, cafes and restaurants, where you can enjoy some local tapas while looking out on to the Mediterranean sea. There are plenty of water sports activities to also enjoy whilst at the beach, or if you just want to relax, hire a beach chair and enjoy the sun.

Balkysub Dive Operations

If any of you fancy scuba diving, Murcia is a great place for it. If it is you’re first time not to worry, Balkysub also provides snorkelling which can be a good place start and then can try a scuba diving course once you feel ready. They provide friendly and professional tuition in multiple languages with several packages and training courses to choose from.
