If your idea of a great holiday is being spoiled, primped and pampered make Murcia your next holiday destination. With cheap flights to Murcia from the UK available on Jet2.com, it’s the perfect place to get that all-important Vitamin D this winter!
Murcia is situated on the Costa Calida, or ‘Balmy Coast’ in south-eastern Spain, and is drenched in 3,000 hours of glorious Mediterranean sunshine each year and very little precipitation. If that isn’t enough to tempt you into a holiday to Murcia, the Costa’s beaches are considered by many to be’ open-air wellness spas’, thanks to the hyper-saline quality of the waters and the therapeutic mud found within them.
It certainly doesn’t hurt to try them out. If you’d prefer someone else to do all the hard work for you though, Murcia is home to a number of major spa resorts.
Indulge in Everything Available
It’s not all beaches and blissed out spa days on a Murcia holiday though. In fact, Murcia City, which is the seventh largest city in Spain, has a major University with many foreign language students, giving the city a great cosmopolitan vibe and of course, fantastic nightlife. Its centrepiece is the ornate Baroque cathedral, but be sure to also discover the medieval quarter and of course, the shopping; it is a form of therapy, after all.
Watersports enthusiasts will find that due to the excellent coastline, holidays in Murcia suit them right down to the ground – or seabed, if you will, particularly in the little fishing village of La Azohia, near Aguilas, which is revered by keen divers. In the region of Jumilla, however, there’s something everyone can enjoy – wine!
They have an entire festival dedicated to the good stuff, ‘Vendimia’, held in the month of August. Its motto is ‘Bebes o te Mojo’, which in English means ‘Drink or I’ll Soak You’. Now, would you really want to argue with that.
