Literally, the name means “Warm Coast”, and, due to its location, that is pretty accurate.
The Costa Cálida is one of the Spanish Costas situated in the Region of Murcia. This costa is situated in the south-east of the Iberian Peninsula (Spain) by the Mediterranean Sea, and merges into the Costa Blanca (Valencia) in the north and the Costa de Almería (Andalusia) in the south. The main town along this coastline is the harbour city of Cartagena. The regional capital is Murcia, but this is situated in the interior of the federal state.
The federal state of Murcia has a coastline about 250 kilometres long, consisting of inlets and narrow, rocky beaches. Here one also finds a seemingly geographical accident called La Manga. This is a narrow strip of land, cut through by some canals and openings, which closes off the Mar Menor lagoon from the Mediterranean Sea. The northernmost coastal towns of the Costa Cálida are San Pedro del Pinatar and San Javier, where the regional airport can also be found. The southernmost coastal town is the more famous (among other things because of the carnival) Águilas.
The largest part of the Costa Cálida or Warm Coast is very rugged and is therefore not yet overrun by tourism like, for instance, the neighbouring Costa Blanca. The most densely built-up area can be found around the Mar Menor and around the slightly bigger city of Cartagena.
The coastal area of Murcia offers, on the one hand, unprotected beaches with wild seas and, on the other hand, narrow inlets with palm trees and calm water. There are sand dunes, beaches, salt water lagoons and mudflats. The Murcia coastal area has many facets for the nature lover. Many areas fall under nature conservation regulations, which means that in many areas nothing has been built, nor will this be allowed in the future.
The airport for the whole Costa Cálida and the whole Murcia region is San Javier Airport, originally a military airport, which has been used for civil aviation for years now. A new airport will be opened in the coming years in order to ensure an even faster connection between the different international airports and Murcia.
Besides the Murcia airport, visitors can use the nearby Alicante-Elche Airport, where more flight routes and destinations can be found.
