Costa Calida: The Costa Calida, Spain's 'warm coast' is a fairly undiscovered part of south-eastern Spain. La Azohia is a totally unspoilt idyllic Spanish fishing village. There are no large tour operators here, and even in the height of the season you will be able to find empty beaches along the coast.
The region of Murcia is locally known at the 'Market Garden of Spain' as it grows all kinds of salad vegetables, citrus fruits, nuts, rice and grapes. The Costa Calida boasts 320 days of sunshine a year, average temperatures in the winter are 17 degrees, and 27 degrees in the summer.
The governing bodies, the Town Halls, in this region are anxious to protect the national heritage of their mountains, salt lakes, beaches and grasslands and have allocated huge areas to be reserved as National and Regional Parks. Having learned lessons from costas on each side of the region, they will not allow building at the expense of the local flora, fauna and quality of life.
