Costa Cálida consolidates as one of favourite areas of the foreigners to buy a house

So is said by the newspaper El Economista in a piece of news publish last July: “Costa Cálida keeps winning positions as one of the greatest destinations to enjoy Mediterranean climate and Spanish gastronomy”.

It is not strange, as with more than 250 kilometres of beach with fine sand, hidden coves and natural parks, our region is one of the greatest destinations for diving and an ideal place to practice outdoor activities and sports such as golf, sailing and water skiing. If we add to this the great gastronomic offer based on the Mediterranean diet and good weather all the year round… we have a privileged place to enjoy an excellent quality of life.

The foreigners who have acquired a house in the area during the last months are well aware of this. So, as it is published in this newspaper, there is a register (between January and March) of 850 purchases in the Region of Murcia by foreigners, the 20.15% of the total of acquisitions done by this type of investors in Spain, a percentage that has been growing a lot during the last years.


Mar Menor: beaches with Q of Touristic Quality to enjoy in summer

Lovers of Mar Menor have reasons to be happy as in 2019 most of our beaches show again the Q of Touristic Quality.

In total, there are twelve flags Q of Touristic Quality waving since las month of July in the beaches of Cartagena, coinciding with last year’s ones: Cala Cortina, Levante beach of Cabo de Palos, Barco Perdido (La Manga), Galúa (La Manga), Cala del Pino (La Manga), Playa of Cavanna (La Manga), la Gola (La Manga), Playa Honda, Mar de Cristal, Playa de Levante of Islas Menores, Playa Paraiso, and the recent San Ginés of La Azohía.

Since 2016 crisis, the conditions have improved drastically due to the important measures that are being taken to stop new episodes of water pollution in Mar Menor. So, the water has again a great transparency and it can be seen again, after 40 years, seahorses and other species such as fan mussel, disappeared in almost the whole Mediterranean Sea, spread on its sea bottom.

Paraíso Beach

Besides, if something characterises our beloved Mar Menor is the shallowness of its water, which makes its beaches the best option to go with little children o for those who prefer a calm bath. A perfect plan for this summer could be a getaway to playa Paraíso. Located in a privileged place, by the Marchamalo salt mines, offering almost a kilometre of beach (with easy accessibility) with all the services: umbrella and hammock rent, toilets, children play area etc.
