COSTA CALIDA - SIXTEEN JEWELES IN ONE CROWN
The Costa Calida is a 250 km long Mediterranean coastline which is located in Spain’s province Murcia. Temperatures in this region are higher than expected and this feature leads to its Spanish name which means “The Warm Coast”. It’s also exceptionally arid, with only 34 cm of precipitations on average. At its northern edge the coast is near El Mojon, close to Alicante, at its most southern point it early meets Aguilas, in the Almeria province.
A feature of this coast which catches the eye is the “mar Menor”, a 170 km2 large saltwater lagoon which is the greatest of its kind in the whole of Europe. It is I the 22 km long limb that cuts of the lagoons connection to the sea that most holyday spots lay. The two most significant towns of the region are called Cartagena and Mazzaron.
