Nudist Beaches in Mazarrón

Mazarrón Area

The town of Mazarrón lies at the foothills of the Sierra de la Almenara on Spain’s Costa Calida. Aside from its tourist industry, fishing and agriculture play a big part in the town’s economy. Mazarrón is also well known for its mineral wealth and the mines of the area date back to the Carthaginian era. The town is steeped in history and offers visitors historical monuments and remains such as the Cadezo del Ploma, a Caleolithic settlement that dates back 5,000 years. Remnants of Phoenician boats have been found in the area who traded along Murcia’s coast way back in 600BC. In the neighbouring town of Cartagena, huge guns were built to defend its port in the 20th century, measuring 56ft and weighing a hefty 88 tons each, the guns had a range of 20 miles.

In recent years Mazarrón’s economy has received a boost with the newly built Corvera International Airport and plans to build a huge Paramount Theme Park. The town offers visitors a selection of shops, bars and restaurants, perfect for dining on the fantastic local produce and seafood of the area. There are around 30 kilometres of sand and gravel beaches for lazy days in the sun and the promenade in the town’s port is a good place to enjoy live music during the warm summer evenings.

Hikers will be in their element with a visit to the nearby forest reserve of Cota Fortuna that offers beautiful scenery and hiking trails. For golfers there is a choice of 3 local golf clubs and within an hour’s drive, many more challenging courses. The town has a variety of sporting options as well as water sports such as sailing and scuba diving. For some reason, compared to other seaside towns on the Costa Calida and Costa Blanca, there is a large choice of official nudist beaches in Mazarrón, all located to the south of the port area.
