For many years difficulty of access and distance from the nearest airports meant that this beautiful region has remained largely unknown.

It is not possible here to detail all of these but those shown below should serve to whet your appetite.

Excursions in the surroundings

Apart from the beaches close by, we would suggest a day trip to the Mar Menor, a large salt water lagoon separated from the Mediterranean Sea by a thin strip of land. It is an ideal place to swim, sail and windsurf. We would recommend Aqua Adicta, a small watersports school run by two British instructors who also speak Spanish.


Hotel Mayarí,  Lorca Hotel Mayarí,  Lorca Hotel Mayarí,  Lorca

‘City of the Sun’ some 35 kms from Calabardina, it is easily reached from Aguilas via a modern dual carriageway. A stroll through it’s beautiful historic quarter can be combined with a visit to it’s castle where the visitor will be pleasantly surprised with a virtual reality tour known as the ‘workshop of time’ and also by actors dressed in medieval costumes re-enacting scenes depicting life in ancient times. Easter week in Lorca is marked by its incredibly large and popular processions, declared to be of ‘National Tourist Interest’. These can best be described as ‘spectacular’ and the rivalry between the different ‘pasos’ or clubs, results in bigger and better parades every year.

Caravaca de la Cruz

The Caravaca Cross has become the emblem of the town and its fame has spread worldwide. In addition, the Holy Sede has bestowed upon Caravaca the honour of being allowed to celebrate an Año Jubilar once every seven years for perpetuity, similar, for example, to Santiago de Compostela. Today the symbolism of the cross had passed from being purely religious and has become embedded in the social and cultural life of the towns inhabitants.
