The location

The El Mojon Hills development is situated in the village of Isla Plana, on the mountainside coastline of Costa Calida. The town of Puerto de Mazarron is a five minute drive away.

The nearest airport is Murcia, approx 45 minutes away. Alicante airport is approx 90 minutes away.

Costa Calida (translated as Warm Coast) is found in the south-east corner of Spain between the Costa Almeria and Costa Blanca. From the most southerly port of Aguilas to the beaches of El Mojon in the north of the Costa Calida stretches 250km. The coast is part of the province of Murcia.

The south Costa Calida has a rugged coastline with many hidden coves and large sweeping bays with a mountainous backdrop extending over 150km. The north is a flat plane encompassing the Mar Menor natural lagoon type lake, the largest in Europe at 170sqkm in size.

Inland we find more mountain ranges of which most are natural parks and the terrains can range from tree lined lakes to sand and limestone moonscapes.

The region of Murcia is famous for its mining history and the agriculture of today; tomatoes being the main crop but the inland area of Jumilla to the north is also famous for its wines. Further back in time the area of Murcia has been the home to the Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Romans and Moors; today it is enjoyed by many northern european nationalities but still retains a very Spanish feel not found on any of the other Costas.

Although not as famous as its neighbouring Costas, Costa del Sol and Costa Blanca, it has a lot to offer, perhaps even more. It's lesser known status work to it's advantage for being less crowded and more tranquil.

It also boasts itself as home to the Mar Menor, Europe's largest salt water lagoon. This 'sea' is great for all sorts of water activities and in the summer months, heats up to the temperature of a warm bath. The Costa Calida offers the tourists chance to relax on the fabulous stretches of beach and gives the chance to discover the other side of the Spanish Costas and to realise the real Spain. Nearby towns include Aguilas, Cartagena, and El Mojon.

The climate works to the holiday maker's advantage with at 315 ot more days of sunshine a year and maximum summer temperatures reaching as high as 35C.
