Murcia beach holidays
On holidays to Murcia, you will always find yourself within easy reach of a beach.

The beach resort of Torrevieja is an ideal place to spend a day with the family with a choice of 5 blue flag beaches each with great beach amenities. If a beach holiday isn’t for you, spend the day at one of the salt water lakes around Torrevieja.
The city has excellent historical sites and fantastic architecture including the castle of Monteagudo, Cathedral de Santa Maria and Almudi Palace for a taste of culture whilst on holidays in Murcia.
