COSTA CÁLIDA. REGION OF MURCIA

The variety and diversity of the Region of Murcia is not only reflected in its multiple cultural traditions. It is particularly noticeable in the wealth of natural habitats, in the number of fascinating spots that we can find both on the coast and inland. It has often been said that while one Murcia Region 'looks towards the sea' a second one 'faces inland'. All in all, it can in general be asserted that the Region of Murcia offers a wide range of activities which bring you into contact with nature.
