Los Alcázares is a a small, but expanding coastal spa town and former fishing village on the western side of the Mar Menor in the autonomous community and province of Murcia, southeastern Spain. The town has maintained its Spanish charm, with only a few hotels and low rise housing. The population swells from 12,000 to over 100,000 during the summer months of July and August. It has a fantastic coastline with over 7 kilometres of sandy beaches with direct access to the warm shallow waters of the Mar Menor. Parallel to these beaches and running the entire length of town is the long promenade, which is great for walking and in the quieter winter months cycling. The town centre has a good selection of shops whilst the Bahia Centre in the Los Narejos area is packed with international eateries. The street market is held every Tuesday morning in Los Alcazares and in Los Narejos on a Saturday morning. Two golf courses are nearby in La Serena and Roda.
The historic port town of Cartagena and beautiful Alicante city are within 20 - 45 minutes drive along the coast. The historic city of Murcia is 40 minutes away through stunning mountain scenery. Many local fiestas take place in Los Alcazares and surrounding towns, lasting for days with delicious street food, traditional dress, entertainment and lively parades.
As this is our holiday home we use professional cleaners. If you are doing a points swap we charge €75 for cleaning and fresh bed linen. If you are doing a direct swap it is negotiable depending on the arrangements for your home. Please note, this is a residential community so a number of sensible rules apply to maintain it clean, tidy and to keep the noise to a reasonable level.
