Los Alcazares is situated in the Murcia region of South Eastern Spain, also known as the Costa Calida. The town sits on the western shore of the Mar Menor, a salt-water lagoon separated from the open sea by a 22 kilometre long strip of land called La Manga. The area enjoys an average of 320 days sunshine per annum. The warm and shallow water of the Mar Menor provides a paradise for sun worshippers and water sports enthusiasts (mainly windsurfing). The mineral rich waters of the Mar Menor are renowned for their health-giving properties and the town still has thermal baths, which have existed since Roman times.
