In the southeastern portion of the Iberian cape lies the spectacular Costa Calida , literally meaning 'the warm coast.' The Costa Calida s beachfront stretches 250 kilometers long, starting from the Carolina beach in Aguilas upto the coast of El Mojon on the frontier of Alicante . In between the two opposite endpoints are quaint villages like La Azohia and Cabo de Palos , which are equally ideal for day tripping and sight seeing. Mazarron is another place to fill up and satisfy your discriminating stomachs and tongues with scrumptious Mediterranean dishes. Not to be forgotten is the La Manga del Mar Menor , a blissful area flanked by two seas with seemingly absolute beaches and crystal-clear waters. At the northern boundary of Costa Calida is the Costa Blanca. Likewise, at the southern peripheral is the Costa de Almeria .
In this part of the world, expect the sun to shine for more than 300 days in a year. This fact alone is one of the selling points of Costa Calida s thriving tourism industry. Costa Calida is also rising as a favorite first class golf destination. A lot of scenic real estate developments have also sprung in the area in the recent years, and still growing. Like its name suggests, Costa Calida is surrounded by balmy seawaters, making the whole coast ideal for both exciting and relaxing water sports like sailing, swimming, water-skiing, canoeing, wind surfing, among others. Modern equipment for these activities are available in some of the resorts.
Whether you are a dandy globe trotter, or simply a nature lover on a voyage, Costa Calida is truly an ultimate destination.
