Mazarrón

Located right at the heart of the Costa Cálida, the district of Mazarrón is the perfect
setting for water sports and active tourism in unique surroundings, with all
manner of leisure facilities.

Along Mazarrón’s 35km of coast there are a number of scuba diving and sailing
centres.

A few years ago, Mazarrón Town Council set up a series of themed beaches in
order to enhance its seaside product. At present, there are several beaches of this
type, including a senior citizens’ beach, a children’s beach, a sports, a winter and a
cultural beach.

In addition, interesting historical buildings such as the Town Hall and the
modernist-style former Cultural Athenæum are a fruit of its rich past and provide
an indication of the town’s mining wealth and splendour in the early 20th century.
Meanwhile, the Roman Salting Factory shows visitors the importance of fishing
and the salting industry in the area in the 4th and 5th centuries AD. As such,
Mazarrón is both an important water sports and beach tourism destination and also
a district of cultural, historical and gastronomic interest.

Another attraction is the Mazarrón Phoenician Ship Interpretation Centre,
where visitors can immerse themselves in the district’s history through the
important archaeological finds and the impressive reproduction of the Mazarrón
Phoenician ship, a gem dating back to the 7th century BC.
