The Spanish Costas are famous for holidays filled with sun, sea, sand and above all fun. A holiday in Costa Calida will be no exception. The bonus is that this stretch of coastline has largely escaped the mass development seen in neighbouring Costa Blanca and the Costa del Sol further west.
Spanish holidaymakers flock to the Costa Calida, and with lastminute.com, you too could see what all the fuss is about. With a name that translates as the warm coast, the Costa Calida enjoys an average temperature of 20C with July and August being the hottest months. The Costa Calida coastline stretches approximately 150 miles from San Pedro del Pinatar at the northern end of La Manga de Mar Menor to the southerly port of Aguilas.
If you want to enjoy the sunshine and beaches of the Costa de Sol minus the crowds, then a holiday to Costa Calida is the choice for you. The coastal landscape is varied, interesting and just waiting to be explored. Discover hidden coves and the beautiful beaches around Aguilas. Mess about in the sand dunes dotted along the coast, or rejuvenate your skin with the mineral-rich salt flats at Lo Pagan, but keep your nose firmly pinched at the town’s fish market.
Show off your jet skiing skills or learn to windsurf in the shallow lagoon of La Manga de Mar Menor. The lagoon, separated from the Mediterranean by a thin strip of land, makes it an ideal place for kids and adults alike to take up water sports or simply splash about in the safe and deliciously warm water of the lagoon.
Not enough excitement for you? The Costa Calida is home to the La Manga Club, a seriously large holiday resort encompassing a wide range of leisure facilities including tennis and not one but three golf courses. Accommodation ranges from affordable self-catering apartments to the five-star luxury of the Hotel Principe Felipe.
When you’re fed up of sunbathing, immerse yourself in the fascinating history and spend some of your holiday in Cartagena, a port west of Mar Menor, or head inland to the city of Murcia for a day sightseeing and shopping.
So you want guaranteed sunshine and picture perfect Spanish beaches, plus water sports, multiple leisure activities with a splash of culture thrown in for good measure, all at an affordable price. Look no further. A holiday to Costa Calida with lastminute.com offers all of this and more at an affordable price. So what are you waiting for? Book your Spanish holiday today.
