The town and port of Mazarrón, in the heart of the Costa Cálida in Murcia, offers visitors a rich artistic heritage and a range of interesting leisure options on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. The Bay of Mazarrón is sheltered by the last foothills of the Sierra de la Almenara, a mining area since the Carthaginian era.
Over 35 km of beaches, unspoiled coves and rocky sea beds make this the ideal place for relaxing in the sun, enjoying nautical sports and scuba-diving, and sampling the local gastronomy. In the port, the fishing dock and the fish market are a chance for visitors to learn more about the town’s seafaring tradition. A good way to do this is by visiting the Roman Salt Preserving Factory Museum , which features part of a large industrial complex dating from the 4th and 5th centuries which was used for producing foods preserved in salt.
