Costa Cálida is the approximately 250 km stretch of Mediterranean coastline of the Spanish province of Murcia. This region has a micro-climate which features comparatively hot mean annual temperatures (and hence its name, Costa Calida "Warm Coast") and a relative degree of aridity (precipitation averaging less than 34 cm annually). The Costa Cálida extends from El Mojón in the north near the province of Alicante, to near the municipality of Águilas in the south bordering on the region of Almería province.

The northern end of this coastline includes the Mar Menor ("Lesser Sea"), a coastal saltwater lagoon which at around 170 km2 is Europe's largest. The Mar Menor is separated from the Mediterranean by a 22km-long spit of land called La Manga, on which most of the tourism development for the region has been constructed. Cartagena and Mazarrón are two other important coastal towns in the region.

San Pedro del Pinatar

San Pedro, as it is more commonly known, is the most northerly of all the towns and villages that sit on the shores of the Mar Menor and is well worth a visit.  There are lots of places to discover such as the marina and beaches that have a very rural feel.  The Salinas Regional Park with its sand dunes and salt flats make it a very important wetland area for birds.  It is easy to spend the whole day here at the park, marina, beach or in the town centre which is especially busy on a Monday which has its weekly market day.
