The Costa Calida is blessed with many kilometres of fine beaches, with some areas backed by dunes and virgin pine forests. The many towns and villages on the coast are proud of their promenades and beaches. Most beaches are well served by bars and restaurants, or chiringuitos as the locals call them. Several natural Parks can be found in the area, also on the coast, providing a good selection of virgin beaches,

The plains of the Costa Calida are incredibly fertile and produce a vast array of fresh fruit and vegetables, which make up the base ingredients of the region’s cuisine.

Slightly further inland, the Valle de Ricote is hilly and verdant green with abundant forests and leads on to the areas around Jumilla and Bullas where some spectacular wineries provide top quality wines.

Specialty dishes include “arroz y costillejas” rice and ribs; “Caldero” seafood rice from the Mar Menor area; “habas con jamón” ham and broad beans; and “pescado a la sal” baked fish in salt. The local prawns are justifiably famous for their sweetness. Those who have lived here for some years are proud and correct in telling visitors; “aquí se come bien!, we eat well here!
