Stretching from San Pedro del Pinatar to Mazarron, the Costa Calida is the stretch of coast belonging to the province of Murcia. The land here is mainly zoned for agricultural use, and indeed the province has a low population considering its size. Of course in recent years there has been considerable interest in the Costa Calida from native Spaniards and foreign nationals alike. This has mainly been concentrated on the Northern part of the Costa, dominated by the Mar Menor. Here you can now find established residential zones, in addition to sporting facilities (golf courses, tennis clubs etc), and entertainment options.
Costa Calida Spain
Though there has been a sharp increase in the population of the northern half of the Costa, it has in the main been driven by those (native and foreign) seeking permanent residency. This has injected a cosmopolitan feel to the area, while retaining much of its community atmosphere and traditional culture.
