The Murcia Region, a rendezvous between two seas.

Outstanding beaches of soft sand, clean water and dazzling sunsets.

Known as the "Warm Coast", the Murcia Region shoreline runs just over 250 km and is shared by two seas: the Minor Sea (Mar Menor) and the Mediterranean. The landscape is peppered with breathtaking cliffs, heavenly secluded beaches of endless white sand, lively seaports and natural coves of crystal-clear waters.
Many of these areas are part of the Region´s network of Protected Natural Lands.

A noteworthy geographical feature is La Manga, a strip of coastline that encloses and separates the 170 km2 Minor Sea lagoon from the Mediterranean, connected only by channels or gorges. The Minor Seas warm waters have always been renowned for their health benefits. Areas of ecological interest are also found, such as the San Pedro del Pinatar salt flats and the Calblanque Natural Park.

Reservoirs, rivers and two natural parks make the Murcia Region a clean and highly appealing area for tourism.

The inland areas of the Murcia Region offer a very rich heritage of natural landscapes and reserves.
