Discover Spain's emerging star with mouthwatering Murcia summer breaks

1st July 2013 Print

People with a love of adventure can head to the undiscovered Spanish Region of Murcia this summer and take advantage of some fantastic value holidays - with a six-day half board break available from just €236 (approx £200) per person.

Holidaymakers can sample a range of activities around the area's famed Costa Calida which, with 252 kilometres of coastline and 26 Blue Flag beaches, 25 of which are 'Q' Flag Tourist Quality marked - more than any other region in Spain - makes Murcia the ideal destination for a short break, whether you're a couple or family.

Based on two adults sharing a room, couples can enjoy five nights' accommodation at the three-star Aparthotel Bahia and take advantage of a wide array of excursions both on and off the water.

Included in the breaks are trips to the magnificent Roman theatre and museum at Cartagena and La Union Mining Park, entering a mine with more than 4,000m² of underground tunnels.

And there are many other popular excursions to be experienced including a one-day cruise along Murcia's Mar Menor - Europe's largest saltwater lagoon - the Mediterranean and Spain's islands offering the chance to fish and snorkel, a sailing trip around the area and a visit to the impressive Terra Natura Zoo, which also has a water park opening this summer.

Alternatively, visitors can check-in at the four-star Hotel Mangalan & Spa and enjoy a three-day half-board stay from only €117 (approx £100) per person, with one child under 12 going free.

Based on a minimum two adults travelling, the package features a visit to Cartagena's Roman theatre and museum and catamaran ride, while additional activities that can be enjoyed include sailing and snorkelling trips and the chance to try a diving initiation.

Both breaks are available up until July 12 and from August 25 to September 30.
