Los Alcazares is a spa town, located next to the shores of the Mar Menor, boasting seven kilometres of coastline from Los Narejos to Punta Brava.
The Mar Menor is a salt-water lagoon with a sea temperature of 5 degrees above the Mediterranean. It is quite unknown to a lot of people and one of Spain’s best-kept secrets. The mineral-rich water of the Mar Menor is revered for its health-giving properties and is listed by the World Health Organisation as one of the healthiest places on earth. There is an area of the beach where you find a natural mud bath, which supposedly gives therapeutic results, which compare to those of the Black Sea.
All the local beaches are connected by means of a magnificent promenade. These are fully equipped with showers, fountains, access for the handicapped, and also a host of activities such as water sports and beach games.
Los Alcazares enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate, with cool sea breezes in summer and protection from the surrounding mountains against the cold North winds in winter. The average temperature easily exceeds 20 degrees.
