Murcia has something for everyone

Murcia is a short flight from most of Northern Europe and is served by two International airports at Alicante (60 minutes away) and Murcia International (30 minutes away). Getting to Murcia is easy!

Murcia has something for everyone! Whether you love the beach, walking, cycling, playing golf, watersports, shopping, gastronomy, or simply chilling around the pool, Murcia has it all.

The weather in Murcia is usually amazing! Summers are long and hot whilst winters are short and mild. Whatever you love doing, you can spend more time doing it in Murcia!

Dining out and shopping in Murcia is exceptional value. A typical ‘Menu del Dia’ costs around 10-12 euro per person for a three course meal including a drink!

Being the market garden of Europe, fruit and vegetables are fresh, grown locally and great value! Seafood is also excellent value and fresh, fresh, fresh… Murcia has three certified wine growing regions – Bullas, Yecla and Jumilla – that produce some fantastic wine at incredible prices! Keep an eye out for Casa Castillo, Juan Gil and Alceno.

Manana is the way of life in Murcia, so chill out, go with the flow and enjoy!
