Beaches

The city of Murcia is located just over 30 kilometres inland & so does not have any beaches of its own. However Murcia province is home to the Costa Calida, offering a multitude of blue flag rated options. The vast majority of them are sandy beaches, but there are pebbled beaches & rocky alcoves for those who prefer to indulge in a spot of snorkelling. Great care & attention is paid to litter collection, & lifeguards/police patrols operate in most areas.
