Bay of Mazarrón

32 beaches and natural areas  30.996 population (INE, 2017) 35 Km of coastline

The municipality of Mazarrón neighbors the municipalities of Cartagena and Fuente Álamo to the East; Alhama de Murcia and Totana to the North; Lorca to the West and the Mediterranean Sea to the South. The municipality, with a rather rugged landscape, has beaches, cliffs and small coves comprising a unique enclave in the Spanish Mediterranean as it remains nearly unspoiled.
Eight of its 32 beaches, and two of its marinas, received the 2018 blue flag award. Furthermore, six Mazarrón beaches received the `Q' quality award, granted by the Tourist Quality Institute (ICTE).
One of the main appeals of Mazarrón not to be missed out by tourists is the Enchanted Landscape of Bolnuevo, where the force of wind and water has eroded the mountain and given rise to whimsical rock formations near the seafront.
Another appeal is the Mazarrón Phoenician Ship Interpretation Center, where visitors can learn about the municipality's history through important archaeological remains and the replica of this old ship.
